She called it the hardest 45 seconds of her life.

The Spirit took the action, the club said, rather than subject our fans and friends to the disrespect we feel such an act would represent.

Good to see that athletic events are going for the "safe space" mentality now too.


When rape victims and people with PTSD from being in war need trigger warnings or a safe space because of the intense trauma they are suffered, we..as a society, are becoming too soft.

However, when we suggest that it is deplorable to be racist, or when someone peacefully protests the systemic oppression and racism against the demographic he is a part of, those people complaining about how soft America is beginning suddenly need those trigger warnings and safe places. Laughing

Kaepernick responds to critics who bashed him but 'honor' MLK

Quote:
Kaepernick clearly saw these hypocritical comments, and/or similar ones, and decided to retweet prominent figures in media and sports who shared a similar perspective as Kaepernick.

"Me, watching people who criticized Colin Kaepernick for his nonviolent protest post MLK quotes today," wrote ESPN's Jemele Hill, who also posted an image of people looking perplexed.

"Crazy. The same people who lambasted @Kaepernick7 a traitor, agitator and disrespectful for his non-violent peaceful protest against injustice, are out here sharing Dr. King quotes. Mind blowing. #MLKDay," Francis Maxwell, a producer for The Young Turks network, wrote.

"Isn't it interesting seeing all of the #nfl teams who didn't hire @Kaepernick7 tweet quotes of Dr. Martin Luther King about nonviolent protest? #MLKDay," nine-year NBA veteran and published author Ethan Thomas wrote.
