The story of Colin Kaepernick continues to be fascinating and also frustrating. Kaepernick protests against something that more people should be involved in. Understandably, racial issues are not easy to deal with and some people would rather avoid getting involved. It is easier to turn a blind eye rather than be a part of change that is either unrealistic or involves blaming people who some would rather not blame. After all, who honestly wants to blame law enforcement officers, those that swear to serve and protect all citizens, of any wrongdoing? Americans and all people who live here are supposed to have some level of trust with law enforcement officers and also the government at all levels.
Kaepernick protested against police brutality towards African-Americans in particular. Is he being punished starting a noble cause or is it the way he is doing it?
What if Kaepernick were to make a vow right now to never take a knee or take a similar action ever again? What if instead he commits to being a public speaker, educating the public about what actions police should take and even get the police to have discussions with Kaepernick and minority communities in general? Would fans and everyone else be comfortable with a completely different approach from Kaepernick?
He is already involved in human rights discussions so he is starting to change his way of doing things. Police officers have valid concerns too. If people can just sit down and talk things through, that may be more effective than continuing to take knees or hold hands during the national anthem. Kaepernick participated in the John F. Kennedy Human Rights
Some NFL fans will admit that they don’t watch football to face the harsh reality of such a tough issue. Football is fun and is used as an escape outlet. It is an outlet just like watching other sports and binge watching Netflix series’.
