I think it’s sad that we’re discussing every angle to this story, except for the issue Kapernick is trying to bring attention to. We cannot deny that many African-Americans are having different experiences with the police than their white neighbors. If you feel that this is a problem — which I do — then we have to work together and find solutions to help protect both the police and the people they serve. Does sitting out the national anthem solve anything? Maybe not, but if it leads to more discussion about the problems we are facing as a nation than perhaps some good can come from it.
