Yesterday marked the first week of an NFL season that looks more like a protest rally than it does a professional sport. The end zone of every stadium that saw live action was emblazoned with pearls of wisdom — “It Takes All Of Us,” “End Racism” — that would be right at home stuffed into fortune cookies. In some of these venues, players chose to kneel, raise a fist, or remain in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem.

One has to wonder if Kaepernick is aware — or cares — that two Los Angeles County deputies are fighting for their lives in an L.A. hospital, having been ambushed by a lone black gunman as they sat in their patrol car. Or whether he is “down” with the reception committee that was waiting at the emergency entrance to wish death to the seriously wounded men. (RELATED: Colin Kaepernick is done!
