Readers Write: Anthem protest disrespects USA


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand up for the national anthem at a preseason against the Green Bay Packers on Friday night.
He said he was protesting the country’s treatment of black people and people of color.
I find his action a total disgrace.
Many men and women have died to give Colin Kaepernick the freedoms he enjoys today.
It is true Colin has the right to say and do what he wants as long as his actions do not physically hurt others.
Yet as a veteran of the United States Navy during the Vietnam era, I believe what America stands for and that is freedom and justice for all.
By Colin not standing up for our national anthem is a insult to all Americans who believe in the U.S.A.
