Over the past two weeks, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin, Kaepernick, has refused to acknowledge the National Anthem because he believes America oppresses Black people. So, this week past, CampusReform.org sent a reporter to the University of Maryland to get reactions from students about Kaepernick’s form of protest.
Unfortunately, the students interviewed showed support for the quarterback’s complete disrespect for the National Anthem — many students referred to him as “heroic.” Perhaps this is because not one student interviewed could recite the National Anthem, which lends itself to the argument that most kids today have no idea what the National Anthem stands for. Or maybe, even worse, they just do not care?
