Great piece. As a longtime MBTA-dependent Bostonian, I’ve never cared for sports, but Kaepernick’s story is an important one. In my budding activism, I’ve been sending out weekly emails to … pretty much everyone whose email address I have. I had planned to talk about boycotting the NFL this week, but now, I’m wondering: now that we’re seeing so many players stand up (or not!), could a boycott be read as us “walking out on the game” when players refuse to rise?
