Freedom of speech 

“You know what’s actually pretty disrespectful to the american flag?
The confederate flag.” -Twitter post

So, I got some good friends that think Kaepernick is really disrespectful for kneeling for the flag.
I see their point…

And I actually do agree in the sense that standing up and saluting our flag during the national anthem is a wonderful gesture of respect for all of those who have fought for this country, and the freedom we have had (because other countries don’t have much of it at all), and for the pride of being an American.
But, I get his message that THIS America is no longer that America we knew.

It’s no longer that America we should be proud of. It just isn’t because the racism has seeped out of underneath the rugs and it’s literally EVERYWHERE.
So I began to think of the bigger picture…

Y’all know what I was thinking?

In football when someone gets hurt you kneel right? It’s a sign of “respect” que no?

Anyways, the issue here is what? The kneeling “DIVIDES” us.

But no one wants division, division puts people out of place. Division on one side means people are opening their eyes and they’re tired. Tired of the bullshit.

So what is the true issue here? It’s not that much that he is “kneeling,” it’s that some one is out of “place,” and that’s what they don’t like.
So, if our leader was a REAL leader. He wouldn’t be calling anyone a “son of a bitch,” instead he’d be calling all of the racism the real division BUT… he can’t call himself out because he’s been apart of it.

He’d address the division and state that it needs to stop. That we are a beautiful and diverse country that the color of our skin and our background shouldn’t define how we get treated or what we do or not deserve.

But, that be in a country where the leader didn’t in courage this freaked mess in the first place.
So maybe both sides are wrong… or are they?

Isn’t this what these Anglos call “Freedom of speech”?
