The disrespect is out of control. Colin Kaepernick may have been the first big name athlete to get recognition for turning his back on Old Glory, but now it is everywhere.

The “Black Lives Matter” movement has taken over. What’s worse is that we can’t watch sports anymore without being reminded about politics.

Also, quick poll: have you ever watched a WNBA game?

From TDW:

Players on the New York Liberty and Seattle Storm WNBA teams walked off the court during the U.S. national anthem in a social justice protest before their game on Saturday.

The WNBA players said in remarks before the game that their demonstration was over the death of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman killed in March after police forced their way into her home while executing a no-knock warrant. Liberty player Layshia Clarendon stood at mid-court with Storm’s Breanna Stewart before the start of the game at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, and dedicated the season to Taylor, according to the New York Post.
