Kaepernick Takes a Knee:
Kaepernick Scores Time Magazine Cover!
Despite all the uproar that Kaepernick caused when he decided to take a knee during the National Anthem, Time Magazine has decided to put him on the cover of Oct. 3rd’s issue.
Kaepernick’s strong stance attempts to highlight the treatment of minorities in the U.S and police brutality.
Since August, Kaepernick has been kneeling and other players have joined in the protest as well. “We’re not doing this made-up thing to get attention…real lives are being lost. Real communities are being affected. The negativity comes from people’s unwillingness to digest the hard true,” said Malcolm Jenkins of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Though many are calling it “unpatriotic”, many are calling Kaepernick a hero.
This truly shows how you can take a stand simply by taking a knee.
