In Contrast to the NFL Flag Protest

First, watch this from Jason Whitlock.

It is very well said.

Now, consider the contrast between Kaepernick and Arie Kouandjio, who plays for the Redskins. Kaepernick, by blessing of birth, was born an American citizen and hates his country, its flag, and its law enforcement officers. He will not stand for the national anthem and disrepects the flag.

Arie Kouandjio is from Cameroon and, on Tuesday, became an American citizen. Kouandjio wanted to be an American. He’s from Africa and wanted to be American. Think about the contrast between Kaepernick and him.

Kouandjio knows what it is like elsewhere. Kaepernick is an entitled, spoiled brat who does not appreciate the rights and freedom he does have.

Jason Whitlock is right about football culture. Arie Kouandjio represents it and Kaepernick does not.
