QB’s protest not the right place or time


On Sept. 1 the San Francisco 49ers met on the field to battle the San Diego Chargers. It was veteran appreciation night Navy seals parachuted into the stadium a Sailor sang the National Anthem and there on the field, Colin Kaepernick refused stand in protest of flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.

Mr. Kaepernick’s ignorance and arrogance in protest of the National Anthem for personal protest goes against every rule of management. Apparently the 49ers were absent for that class as was the NFL, at least that’s the gist of their response in Steve Wyche’s article published on Aug. 27.

Kaepernick’s childish antics aren’t helping solve any problems, in fact they create animosity and even more hate. People go to sporting events to forget about politics, work and life in general for a couple hours. They want to root for their team.

The 49ers and NFL failure to perform its managerial duties is the equivalent of praising and rewarding a child for disrespect.

These players are heroes to a lot of children even some adults for that reason they should be held to a higher standard.

There is a time and a place for protest but work is neither.
