Political cartoonist Ed Hall posted this cartoon on his Facebook page on August 30th.  This cartoon hits the nail on the head.  This simple andstraightforward cartoon captures the meaning behind the hashtag #VeteransForKaepernick and how many veterans feel about the issue.  America is currently a little broken and Kaepernick is creating much needed conversations about race so we can get to repairing the flaws.

Obama’s statement on the matter is also interesting.  In the CNN article accopanying the video the author writes, “Obama took a measured approach Monday, saying that members of the military, getting in harm’s way for the flag and the country, could feel spurned by Kaepernick’s protest, he is also glad that Kaepernick is speaking up.”
