Where is Colin Kaepernick’s Presidential Medal of Freedom?



#Colin #Kaepernicks #Presidential #Medal #Freedom

To the editor: When soccer star Megan Rapinoe campaigned for LGBTQ rights, she was warmly acquired.

Nonetheless, when she took a knee to indicate solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who took a knee throughout the nationwide anthem to deliver consideration to the difficulty of racial inequality and police brutality, she was castigated by whites, then-President Trump and conservative commentators within the media who modified the narrative and accused her and people who who take a knee of disrespecting the navy.

Rapinoe is allowed to proceed enjoying soccer, whereas Kaepernick was successfully banned from enjoying within the NFL. Likewise, Rapinoe is now a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, whereas Kaepernick continues to be a pariah.

I view this for instance of social, racial and gender inequality.
