Colin Kaepernick is the biggest story in the NFL right now. His refusal to stand for the national anthem until there is real change in the way people of color are treated in America has made national headlines and it seems that everyone, in every walk of life, has an opinion on his decision. That most of the discussion about this situation is centered on Kaepernick’s refusal to stand, rather than his reasons for doing so, is disappointing, but was also entirely predictable.
