As everyone has heard, NFL player Colin Kaepernick recently sat during the National Anthem. He did this to show his disapproval for the recent shootings of unarmed black men by police officers. Is this action going to cause any change? No. Did Kaepernick do this to draw attention to himself? Maybe.

But for all the people who were “outraged” by this action; what did they say when 12 year old Tamir Rice was shot dead for carrying a toy gun? Nothing.

What did they say when Walter Scott was shot in the back while running away from a police officer? Nothing.

But now an NFL player sits during the National Anthem and now these people are offended. People should be less outraged about Colin Kaepernick using his First Amendment rights, and be more outraged about innocent people being killed. Also, this outrage is from the same crowd of people who say they are anti-political correctness. Suddenly, this anti-politically correct crowd is acting very politically correct.
