The people that are so offended and apppalled by Mr. Kaebernick's protest. I 'd like to know if they are as outraged by all the senseless killing of minorities, all of the racial injustices in America, that people are okay with. We turn a blind eye to it and as long as it is not affecting us personally we avoid thinking , discussing , protesting , and doing a thing about it. Here is a man that is taking a non violent stand to bring attention to this horrible problem. He is not saying he does not love or respect his country or our flag,but the flag is supposed to be a symbol of freedom , equality, and justice for all !! Is that really what the flag stands for??? He is saying that it is hard to hear the song that says " The land of the Free and the home of the brave." Because it's not true!!!!! He is truly being brave. Please support him for stepping out and taking a stand . Let's not let them ostracize him let's support him . Mr. Wade said it best "Enough is Enough" What will we do today to contribute to change no mater how small. ❤️

Beyoncé‘s mom, Tina Knowles, is standing with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his protest against systematic racism in the U.S.

Ms. Knowles took to Instagram to voice her support for Kaepernick, who refused to honor the America flag during the national anthem before a game.

Kaepernick has received backlash from some fans, who consider the protest an affront to patriotism.

Tina said:

“I’d like to know if they are as outraged by all the senseless killing of minorities, all of the racial injustices in America, that people are okay with. We turn a blind eye to it and as long as it is not affecting us personally we avoid thinking, discussing, protesting, and doing a thing about it.”
