Lol. The burden of proof is on you.

Give me an example of when it was a "good time and place" to protest.

This should be good

Keep in mind throughout all of this....

Colin Kaepernick, a dude who has put up MILLIONS of his own dollars, and still putting up his own money through charitable causes, both domestic and abroad, is unemployed for kneeling during the anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice.

Don't lose sight of that. He's the only one that truly stuck his neck out for something...

Interesting to see how history views him now....

I gotta hand it to him. He's been willing to risk his career to make society better. He's braver than everyone criticizing and blacklisting him.

Source?

He wouldn't be unemployed if he wasn't such a terrible QB.

Why even have the anthem play?

Maybe at the ASG or during the Finals. But every ****ing game?

Usless outdated tradition. Who gives a flying f#ck? Just play the basketball game.

How is it on me, retard?

You're the one saying I don't knowing what protesting means. Please use your wisdom to tell the board the correct way to protest or STFU, Chico.

He stuck his neck out to call police "modern day slave catchers, wore clothing with pigs wearing police hats and he also praised Castro.

Don't lose sight of that.

Regardless if you think they should stand or kneel, ultimately the fact is it's peaceful protest. When large showings of peaceful protest are ignored or especially muffled, things historically get pretty ugly after that

I gotta tell ya, I don't at all get Colin kneeling a few years ago (when Obama was president btw) to protest the police. What does the police have to do with your flag at a football game? My grandfather was mugged by an African American man in a dark parking lot years ago..... Maybe I should of refused to stand for the pledge when I was in 5th grade? Sorry, I just don't get it. There are good cops, there are bad cops. Always been that way, always will. Anybody who refuses to stand is in fact disrespecting America. No way around it. You aren't disrespecting a bad cop, you are disrespecting the men and women who died so you have the legal right to kneel. Many other countries would lock you away for that. Lol and of course since Donald Trump is president now, its his fault of course, all his fault.

the " a few bad apples" argument for cops doesn't work in the 21st century, buddy.

we now have videos of cops shooting unarmed people, infiltrating peaceful protests, planting drugs on people and in their property, escalating tense situations while pointing their guns at civilians and etc.

it's a criminal institution to be honest. I agree, there's good cops out there, but the institution is criminal and has been for a long time.

changes must be made.

You are right, I don't. I have too much respect from the men and women, white, BLACK, ASIAN, MEXICAN, whatever color, they are Americans, who died for this country. I;m sure we all have had a family member, whether we knew them or not die in some war. Disrespecting our flag is saying they died for nothing. It blows my mind that people are OK with this.
