Colin Kaepernick sits out the National Anthem…is he exercising his rights?

Millionaire quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he will not stand up for the National Anthem until black people are no longer oppressed. One might say he is exercising his rights but do his rights supercede the rights of his employer? The football field is his workplace and the employer controls the space. Kaepernick has a right to his opinion but not on the football field. NBC commentator Rodney Harrison went as far as to question Kaepernick’s blackness. Harrison has since apologized. Donald Trump has said Kaepernick should go to a country that aligns with his viewpoint. The quarterback need not leave the country but he should take his protest off the football field. Share your thoughts.
