In an op/ed, the Times editorial czar offers a defense of Forty Niners QB Colin Kaepernick and his decision to sit out the playing of the National Anthem. Jerry Moore says the nation's founders share a belief in civil disobediance and that true patriots are those who can't sleep at night over children going hungry or vets sleeping in the streets.
I wonder about Kaepernick's interest in all this since his disdain or injustice seems recent and contrived at a point where his career is wobbly.
That said, the nation will survive him sittng and someone raising issues like injustice will seldom make you popular with all.
Mr. Kaepernick will be judged by the marketplace. Are his actions consistant with what he is, an entertainer and well paid one.
