    What Kaepernick has chosen to do is exercise is First Amendment rights in a public setting. He has every right to do so. The First Amendment protects his right to engage in peaceful civil protest, and YOU have the right to disagree. That is the word of the law. The intent of the law is to protect this freedom. Period. When a sitting president determines that his action warrants penalties (in this case, calling him an expletive AND compelling the NFL to take action against him), then we see the slow erosion of one’s ability to engage the the First Amendment process. I have the utmost respect for the symbolic intent of his protest; those who do not agree with his action, and what it symbolizes, do not appear to understand that this is within his right and has nothing to do with “respect” for the flag. A flag is a symbol; an African American man kneeling during the national anthem is also symbolic..in this case it symbolizes the marginalized, the voiceless, the “other”….
