Lol, some of you just can't help live up to the worst of the other sides prejudices. I just was bemoaning the lack of basic respect for one another on this board and the very next post you call me a moron. Now I agree I think it a reach as an argument myself but then again I wasn't making it. No, I don't believe he was taking a knee because of the lyrics of the anthem. I think he did it to protest how blacks are treated in the US. I think this because Kapearnick said that was his reasoning. Since I don't think protesting racism is in any way unpatriotic, I don't think he was wrong doing so. It's Trump who made this about something it wasn't. None of this is , the reason I replied to the OP. So respectfully, bother someone else, if you are incapable of civilized discourse.
