Colin Kaepernick’s protest against racial injustice in the US appears to be slowly spreading with the US soccer international Megan Rapinoe kneeling during the anthem.
On Sunday, Rapinoe said her gesture was a nod towards Kaepernick. “It was very intentional,” Rapinoe told American Soccer Now after the game. “It was a little nod to Kaepernick and everything that he’s standing for right now. I think it’s actually pretty disgusting the way he was treated and the way that a lot of the media has covered it and made it about something that it absolutely isn’t. We need to have a more thoughtful, two-sided conversation about racial issues in this country.
This is all about the freedom of Americans to be able to express themselves. Good for her to back up Kaepernick.
