The advances to 1968 — the year Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, America was preparing to send a man to the moon, the cost of gas was 34 cents, and life was ideal within the country's upper middle class.

Smith pointed out that unlike Kaepernick, who protested against racial discrimination in America by kneeling during the anthem, other players such as Millikin University linebacker Conner Brewer decided to go in another direction and stand on the sideline during the anthem while his teammates chose to stay in the locker room. more >>
