black lives matter

“All lives cannot matter unless black lives matter too”

I wish I could take credit for that but I read it on a church sign in Cranford, NJ.

Colin Kaepernick kneels before the flag, symbolically, to honor the fallen black lives that died tragically in what he perceives as unjust law enforcement by some. He was ridiculed. Soldiers kneel before the flag to honor their fallen comrades who died tragically in foreign wars, they are seen as humble. I see no difference in either stance. Maybe the question should be, why are you standing up….
