Good post. I don't see anyone kneeling protesting on their own time. You are paid to do a job, do you job and do what you want on your own time.
1968 Olympics, America's Tommie Smith and John Carlos stood on the medals platform and raised their fists while the National Anthem played, protesting roughly the same stuff Kaep and others did 49 years later. They did it in a setting that seemed improper and offensive to many Americans, and the right thing to do to many other Americans. They were unpaid amateurs back before the line between amateur and pro was blurred. Were they right or wrong . . . how does everyone feel about that?
