The protests began last year when Colin Kaepernick — who then played for the San Francisco 49ers — began kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. Many players then followed with their own protests. Kaepernick remains unsigned since he left the 49ers, which is ‘good riddance’ to ‘bad garbage’!
The NFL can say all they want; however, it’s not President Trump who is dividing the country, it’s the ‘over-paid’ athletes and the greedy owners/coaches, etc., who are dividing the country. Put the blame where it belongs!
