“I won’t show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” That ridicules comment was uttered by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose net worth currently stands at $16-million dollars.

There’s no doubt that Kaepernick has a right to say anything he likes that’s his “Constitutional Right” in a country that he claims “oppresses black people” moreover if there was ever a poster child that exhibited America at its finest, it would be Colin Kaepernick himself.

A black kid born to a white 19-year old single and destitute teenager, and an African-American male who abandoned both of them before Colin was born, and raised by a white couple who raised him as their own birth son…not to shabby for a country that “oppresses black people.”

Colin’s choice to either stand or not was his choice, and his choice alone, however imagine for a moment that he didn't have that choice, a simple task that we all take for granted, unless you're Marine Sergeant Zachary Stinson of Pennsylvania, who lost both legs above the knee in Afghanistan.

However Sergeant Zachary Stinson is a patriot, and more importantly a U.S. MARINE, with a deep seeded love of country and found a way to “stand” despite his disability when his National Anthem was being played.

Many took notice that this Marine found a way to stand up for the anthem.

The irony of course is that over rated millionaire athletes like Kaepernick will no doubt be hailed as “brave” by the mainstream press, while a true hero, who sacrifice everything goes virtually unnoticed.
