His reply to his initial protest display was that he knelt in response to the “systemic oppression against people of color [and] police brutality.”

President Trump’s response on the other hand is on a whole other ball field…

Former NFL player, Colin Kaepernick is sticking strong to his beliefs that he is not bashing the flag by kneeling. He honestly didn’t even get much media attention when it first happened he confirmed himself during an interview with the NFL.com:

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”


“To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Kaepernick bluntly stated, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag” in August 2016, after he knelt during a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

According to IJR:

Kaepernick's kneeling has sparked a national divide amongst fans all around the US.

Even getting President Trump involved when he stated team owners should fire those “sons of b*****s” who kneel.

The president also commented on a Monday night football game in which players knelt before the national anthem. When the Dallas Cowboys knelt before the national anthem, Trump said, they provoked “great anger” and the “loudest” booing he's “ever heard”:

“I think that it's always appropriate for the president of the United States to defend our flag, to defend the national anthem, and to defend the men and women who fought and died to defend it,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.
