When Colin Kaepernick started kneeling during the national anthem during NFL football games in protest to police brutality, many people like Trump and others cited him as being un American and disrespecting our soldiers even though that's not what Kap was doing, as he even said his kneeling had nothing to do with disrespecting soldiers in the military but rather his disgust with police brutality, but that didn't stop people from spinning his protests, which is part of the reason he's no longer in the nfl. Although he did make some questionable choices that I felt contributed more to why he's not in the NFL anymore, but that's besides the point.
The point is given the current riots going on right now, does this mean that Colin Kaepernick was on the right side of history the whole time, and that eventually years from now we will come to acknowledge him as the new Muhammad Ali? Please discuss.
