Mr. Kaepernick has the right to stand or not stand, as he wishes. He sees the prejudice and inequity in this country. May I suggest that instead of his gesture of protest, he goes into the communities that need help to donate his time and money to help improve those communities. Perhaps he can also use his fame and status as an NFL star to work with police to develop programs to benefit both the community and the police. Sitting down generally accomplishes little whereas positive actions generally get things done.
