Mr. President, this some bullshit.
“‘I want Mr. Kaepernick and others who are on a knee, I want them to listen to the pain that they may cause someone who, for example, had a spouse or a child who was killed in combat,’ Obama said. ‘But I also want people to think about the pain that he may be expressing about somebody who has lost a loved one that they think was unfairly shot.'”
What Colin Kaepernick is doing has nothing to do with military families. It has to do with ALL families, those with bodies to bury and those who see injustice and are repulsed by it. Oh yes, I noticed that you treat the pain of military families as a given and the pain of victims of police violence as an opinion.
What’s up with this? Mr. President, what about the black veteran who is shot by the police, or his black child? Where do they fall on your dichotomy? Either you think Kaepernick is right or you think he is wrong. Ain’t no in between.
