Letter: It’s not an anthem or military protest

To the Editor:

The Colin Kaepernick cartoon in the Opinions section of Thursday’s paper is straight-up dishonest. The NFL players kneeling during the national anthem are not protesting the anthem or the military; it has always been a protest against racial injustice and police brutality in our country.

Did Rosa Parks refuse to give up her bus seat in protest of public transportation?

Conservatives made these protests about the flag, the anthem, and the military because that’s how racism works.
