This is brilliant! This article does not mention Colin Kaepernick by name. It does not mention police abuse, racial injustice, or the many ways that white supremacy rule this society.

They are co-opting a protest started by Colin Kaepernick to protest racial injustice and police brutality. He became the target of vicious, racist attacks by the right, the media, and the politicians. He was blackballed for it. The people who are going to kneel to “Protest Trump Presidency” did not have the courage to stand up for Kaepernick, or against racial injustice and police brutality. This is “Grade A” liberal politics in action. This is how liberals co-opt the hard and dangerous work of people, particularly people of color, who engage in direct action.

Sadly it lacks integrity, courage, or a commitment to social justice.
