Default Your thoughts on Kaepernick sitting/kneeling during National Anthem!

Now that the Donald got involved, it's world wide news. But this has been a controversy for past couple of years now.

While kaepernick's upbrining perhaps played a role in his protest against social injustice... Is he right in expressing them by disrespecting the flag?

I think he is wrong and I think (agree with donald) that NFL and every other sports body should take a stand of NO sitting/kneeling during Anthem.

I agree with Kaepernick. He used to sit out but then he started taking the knee. It is not disrespecting the flag. He is using the platform to bring light to the issue which Afrian-Americans feel very passionate about. Even MLK (who I believe to be the greatest American ever) also took knee as protest.

Many are "more dedicated to order than to justice," offended by kneeling during the Anthem & not by racism & modern-day lynching

Rosa Parks did not sit down in the bus to protest public transportation.

Did MLK kneel during national anthem ? Every single person is expected to stand during national anthem of any country... that is part of sports ..a sense of unity that is free of any politics ...

The quote u put forth is ironic ... because though kaepernicks action got well published the discussion never went to police brutality ... so he failed even many may argue he had to take this stance to get noticed ...

Let sarker start sitting during bd national anthem for bigotry he faces on Facebook ..see how that plays out for Bangladeshi ppl and Hasina apa...it's a knee to all those who died for your freedom ..

it is failure of ppl that we can't uphold the words of declaration of independence and the constitution .....

what if Hitler won the ww2 ..how the world would look like now ? Though usa has its problems it is still a great country that was created from many bloodshed and sacrifice ...I think least anyone can do is stand up for its national anthem ..

His intention was good but Kaepernik failed ... and this kneeling became a whole new monster ... it's time we put this vile act to rest

In a BCL match, if they play the national anthem and without a cause a fan in the stadium don't stand, what may happen?

I can't remember if they played national anthem in league finals between clubs back in the days (Abahani v Mohamodon).
