During a recent segment on “The View” discussing Colin Kaepernick, co-host Sunny Hostin made the argument that the former 49ers quarterback is “not only owed an apology” but is “owed his job” and “owed back pay.”
The protests have people rethinking their stance on things like kneeling and the question is, is Colin Kaepernick owed an apology? What do you think, Sunny?
I think he’s not only owed an apology, Whoopi. I think he’s owed his job. I think he’s owed back pay. I think he deserves a Noble Peace Prize.
I think what is fascinating about it is when you listen to Roger Goodell’s mea culpa, he mentions everything. He says we are wrong. We should have listened. Athletes in the league are allowed to take a knee. We support peaceful protests. He mentions everything except the man who started this peaceful protest.”
She added, “Taking the knee has become the symbol of these protests. We see it just all over our country. We see it actually internationally now.
I think it’s shameful that people were allowed to co-opt that movement and make it about the flag and make it something that it was never about. It really just is shameful. I’m sort of shocked that Roger Goodell never mentioned his name.
