#Kaepernick stands up against discrimination and racism much like Muhammad Ali did

Colin Kaepernick is refusing to stand for the national anthem to protest the oppression of African Americans in this country.

It wasn’t too long ago there was a global celebration of Muhammad Ali, who refused to fight for a country that oppressed his own people.

Ali became an “idea” to many people, who clearly had adopted their own sanitized version of Ali. So not surprisingly, the reaction to Kaepernick has been about what you’d expect.

As I always say, everybody wants athletes to stances and positions … Until they say something YOU don’t want to hear. #Hate it!
