    I predict Clark will be next vice president when Bloomberg wins in 2020.

    I've been saying this since this whole Kaepernick thing started. Thank you sir for your service. We all own the flag and it means different things to different people!

    He sold out to Nike for more money... protesting for cash.

    Because you saw the racism in the armed forces all of them.

    Some of u americams who disagree with the general need to have ur head examine because u believe that u must respect the flag which is nothing more than a pice of cloth but u refuse to afford that same dignity to another human who can hear see walk talk and carry out all the bodily function that u urself carry out. But the only difference between u and then is the colour of their skin by hating another person because of the colour of their skin is to tell the creator God almighty that he shouldn't have created that individual with that skin colour how absurd

    We're still holding a flags value over the value of people? Its 2018. We can do better.

    Well whether you believe he is wrong or right the bottom line is. Kneeling in peaceful protest has brought the issue of the African American community not having an equal voice...not being heard in their fight for fair treatment in the eyes of the law into the spotlight. Thanks to Trumps disgusting visceral.

    When I do something for someone to help them, whatever it may be, I do it out of kindness and because I believe in doing what you can when you are needed, and I don’t look for recognition, or something back from that person, so why would someone who served this country for the rights of all Americans, by their own choice be offended when someone is doing exactly what you helped give them the right to do sounds like the ones that get offended are serving for the wrong reasons to me, what happened to being humble and proud to serve instead of notoriety and praise!!!

    It seems to me the only ones who think kneeling for the anthem are the brainwashed trumpettes.
