IFWT_Mark Cuban

Colin Kaepernick caused a firestorm when he sat in protest during the national anthem, saying he is “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color.”  Some people rebuked the move, saying he was disrespecting the military that fought for his freedom and the country that gave him the ability to make millions; others praised him for using his platform to speak up and bring attention to the discrimination and inequality.  Mark Cuban was one of the people who spoke up for the San Francisco 49ers quarterback.  Though the Dallas Mavericks owner doesn’t fully agree with Kaepernick’s form of protest, Cuban praised him for showing that protest can be peaceful.
