Last week, we reported that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick turned on America on Friday when he refused to stand as the national anthem played before a game.
Kaepernick tried to defend his shameful show of disrespect by race-baiting.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he said of his protest. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
In the wake of this nonsense, a freshman football team in Flint Township were told by their host team’s announcer that the national anthem would not be played before their game. According to Liftable, the team knew they could not play until the anthem had played, so they took a stand by starting to sing not the sidelines despite there being no music.
“Like most schools in the state of Michigan, we choose to play the national anthem prior to the highest level of competition,” said. Eddie L. Kindle, Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools Superintendent.
He went on to claim that this common decision in many communities was in no way any form of protesting and that they will never refuse to play the national anthem.
