This is Courage

I wouldn't normally pay much attention to what a sports star did or said, and I have never heard of this brave young before, but I applaud Colin Kaepernick  for his courage in sitting out the national anthem in the NFL preseason game.  (I remember sitting out the anthem in the bleachers in high school, and kudos to Grady High in Atlanta, GA no one gave me trouble about it).

Oh, and don't be fooled by the MSM narrative.  He said A LOT more than they're reporting.  I'll just quote some of the juicier bits that'll make you want to click on that link above :

"Does the election year have anything to do with timing?
CK: It wasn’t a timing thing, it wasn’t something that was planned. But I think the two presidential candidates that we currently have also represent the issues that we have in this country right now.
Do you want to expand on that?
CK: You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who’s openly racist. We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?"

Bravo, young man, bravo.
