If you haven’t heard of a man named Colin Kaepernick, he’s an ex NFL quarterback who many believe can’t get a job right now because his belief in not standing for the national anthem. Though the NFL would never come out and say this is the reason why, many players, sports analyst and fans have spoke on his behalf as well as had peaceful demonstrations.
In Belleville Illinois a coach is getting back lash for having his 8-year old football team in kneel during the National Anthem. Coach Green spoke on the situation and said “One of the kids asked me if I saw (people) protesting and rioting in St. Louis. I said yes; I said do you ‘Do you know why there are doing it?” and the boy responded “Because black people are getting killed and nobody’s going jail”. Coach Green went on to say he saw it as a teachable discussion for the whole team and as a team the 8 year old’s made their own decision to kneel. Shot out to you Kaepernick. You may not have a job but you have a world full of support.
