Just a friendly reminder that we are still a majority in this country. #TakeAmericaBack

The Colin Kaepernick story has gotten seemingly endless attention because its reach goes far beyond football.
-
A pretty good reminder of that came Saturday afternoon in New York City, which is far removed from Kaepernick’s former NFL home of San Francisco. At a rally in Brooklyn, dozens of current and former New York police officers wore shirts that said β€œ#WeStandWithKap” and at the end of the rally they took a knee and raised their fist, according to the New York Daily News.
-
Kaepernick became a household name when he took a knee for the national anthem last season to bring attention to racial injustice, including police brutality. It also appears to be one reason he has not been signed by any NFL team this offseason.
-
The police officers noted to the Daily News that they were speaking out against their belief that NFL teams aren’t signing Kaepernick as punishment for his protest.
-
β€œWhat Colin Kaepernick did is try to bring awareness that this nation unfortunately has ignored for far too long,” said NYPD Sgt. Edwin Raymond, an organizer of the rally, according to the Daily News. β€œAnd that’s the issue of racism in America and policing in America. We decided to gather here today because of the way he’s being railroaded for speaking the obvious truth.”

Reposting from my personal account (@ashbrd): I don't even know how to begin to say how I feel about America and Americans who still support Trump, or even sympathize with him. Sickened. Disgusted. The fact that he truly could not denounce white supremacy and nazi groups, and the fact that he said there is blame on "'many sides", is sickening. There are two sides: right and wrong.
.
If you stick with Trump by this point, and what I've forewarned for the past couple of years, is that you are on the wrong side of history. He will create a path of destruction, will promote hatred and bigotry, and is doing just that among his base. His normalization of discrimination and hate, from the Muslim ban, to wanting to build a wall to keep Mexican immigrants out, to the LGBT community, to women's reproductive rights (I could keep going)... are sickening, and this past week's behavior from Trump has been utterly disgusting.
.
If you view people who are denouncing Trump as "liberal", as a "Hillary supporter", as "Libtards" at this point, then you are part of the problem. It's RIGHT vs WRONG. Patriotism vs Bigotry and Hate. Because Trump's America is just that. Synonymous with hate. He's normalized the hate in this country; he's given all of the racist, discriminating individuals who have been hiding in the shadows a platform to now boldly come out from those very shadows where they once lurked. They now have a voice, and feel empowered to use it, even if it's to spread their message of hate and bigotry. Look deep inside of yourself and ask, "Is this who I want to be?" TRUMP did all of this; you cannot deny this.
.
I do not support and will never support this administration and its toxicity. He said he would "drain the swamp"; Trump IS the swamp. I will proudly #RESIST every step of the way, because Nazis and White supremacists are NOT American. They are traitors to our country, which is comprised of millions of immigrants of many religions, races, backgrounds, languages, genders, identities. THAT is what makes America so great. Not recognizing that is dangerous, and I implore you to do some deep soul-searching if my message today is offending you. #visitslo

We always talk about whatever rally we're attending and the issues they are addressing before we arrive so that if a reporter or bystander steps up with questions, we're ready to give a (hopefully) coherent answer. Here Pam lays it out for KNX without a hitch. Though Rob L in the background seems ready to jump in at any time. Or he's pondering lunch. #nobannowall #refugeeswelcome #indivisible
