Colin Kaepernick is getting a lot of hate, but there are some important folks who support him. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“WASHINGTON ― Many have accused San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick of not supporting veterans since he decided not to stand for the national anthem at a preseason game on Friday in protest of how people of color are treated in America.

But not all former members of the military see Kaepernick’s protest as disrespectful.

Marcus Newsome, who served in the U.S. Army from 2000 to 2011, told The Huffington Post he was tired of seeing Kaepernick bashed for “exercising his 1st Amendment right.” In an email, he said he was also tired of people using veterans to argue against Kaepernick’s stance, “especially when that flag and anthem has been racist towards people historically, treated Veterans like crap in the past and now, and in some cases [using] us as a vehicle for their ignorant agendas.”

So he started #VeteransForKaepernick ― a hashtag for veterans to voice their support for the quarterback.”
