Why Michael Strahan Supports Colin Kaepernick and NFL Kneeling Even Though His Father Is a Military Veteran

These findings suggest Americans are becoming more tolerant of the movement ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began during the 2016 preseason, when he refused to stand during the national anthem to protest social inequality and police brutality in America. "I know there are a number of high schools and colleges who are dropping Nike". The ad "spoke to Nike's core consumers in a very Nike-esque provocative way", he added.

"And when my father, who is 81, can look at me and tell me that he's not offended by it because he understands, then how could I, who didn't do that service, be offended?" "I think I would have", said Strahan (he retired in 2007).
