The survey of 1,128 Americans, conducted on Sept. 13 and 14, found stark differences in perception of the protests among racial and age lines.


Overall, 47 percent of Americans oppose Kaepernick’s protest, with 32 percent in support and the remaining 21 percent either neutral or declining to offer an opinion.

Respondents under the age of 34 are divided, with 39 percent supporting Kaepernick and 30 percent opposing him, while 65 percent of Americans over the age of 55 oppose the protest.

From a racial perspective, only 24 percent of whites supported Kaepernick’s protest, while 63 percent of black Americans supported his action. Hispanic Americans fell short of the midpoint at 39 percent.

Americans are split right down the middle on whether the NFL should permit protests at all, with 42 percent saying the NFL should crack down on protests, and another 42 percent saying the NFL should allow any form of protest to continue.

And I'm sure the same half think President Obama is related to Sadam Hussein because of his middle name and that racism doesn't exist.

yeap....Whites dont want to admit their is a huge racism problem in America...almost everything is divided amongst racial lines and Trump is pointing that out....

24% That's pathetic. They should ask those same people who oppose him, "do they believe they need guns to protect themselves from government." Whenever, I hear stats like this it almost always makes me question the true intentions of "well-meaning," "color-blind" White people.

That's just not their idea of how someone should be protesting. Doesn't mean they don't think he has the right to do it. It's divisive. It's not productive.

He's literally sitting to bring greater awareness to what should be a very obvious problem. When BLM get out in the streets to march, White people claim they riot and are uncivilized. When Kaepernick takes a knee during a song, they say he's unpatriotic or divisive and not productive.

those who oppose his non-violent protest are probably the same ones who agree with people walking around in public and places like Walmart with semi-automatic assault rifles on their shoulders, like we living in a military zone......

White people had something to say before he started wearing that, such as "he hasn't been a victim; therefore, he shouldn't be protesting" or "he's rich so it shouldn't matter to him."

Exactly. But let a black man walk around with one and he's a thug. I'm not sure why they keep trying to veil their beliefs. They should just come out and say "I don't believe all races should be treated equally" because every statement they make and every action they take says otherwise.

Most just think the flag shouldn't be disrespected. He has his right to do it, and others have the right to be against doing it.

And some of those same people have a rebel flag in their yard. It isn't a sign of disrespect considering his intention is to help establish equitable treatment, something that flag is suppose to represent.

I'm not saying those people against him don't have a right to feel the way feel, I'm saying how they feel makes me question their integrity and character.

Standing up to show respect for the flag of your country has a lot to do with those two things (integrity, and character.)

Actually it doesn't. It indicates unquestionable loyalty. Nazi Germany stood for and saluted their flag. That didn't mean they had integrity or character.

sure they have so called "character" and "integrity" for it because it works for them....and they fall short of providing those same qualities for ALL AMERICANS.....which they will never admit or want to see change....they want it to only work for them and not for everyone else...this is why they get so pissed off when others dont feel the same way about it as they do....

ignoring Blacks whining about having to comply with orders from cops (that we all have to comply with) is hardly comparable to what the Germans did, nor the Japanese.

White people want their white privilege and everything that they can get riding off the backs of people who don't care and are too weak to speak up or show solidarity for a meaningful cause.what white people are not affected by. Back in the protest of the 60's they stood ready to help the police beat the hell out of children and women. Those white bitches have always tried to tell us to keep behind a chalk line. White people should keep their fucking pie holes shut. More of them dodged the draft than any black man combined Including that Idiot they are trying to choke down the throats of America for the sake of making America white again. They fucked up many veterans and left them to fend for themselves after their cause are measured useful and more than not useless.No Americans is bound to show respect to a motherfucker or it's flag, who is currently abusing their power against some Americans. When we got back from Vietnam, white hippies spit on soldiers Respect,character,Integrity, Old pale face has their own shit bamed and it's mainly bullshit.

In Germany, they started saluting a person (rather than just their flag.) Standing up for your country's flag doesn't mean you do or don't back everything your government does. Your thinking seems to support one to stop supporting the flag each time your choice for president loses an election. Each time your opinion is not held by the majority in your country, you seem to stop supporting the flag of your country. The majority in this country supports the police. They don't want the police to have to put their lives in more n' more danger when someone (who may or may not be armed) stops complying with an officers commands, and puts his hands in his pocket, a car etc. You want them to assume someone isn't armed, and only fire when they see a weapon. Most in this country disagree with you. It appears Hillary may want to test this. She's very close to losing my vote. Very, very close. If she wants officers to assume someone isn't armed, I will not vote for her. This WOULD be the 1st time I have not voted for a Dem for President. Her brain is being taken over by the Parkinsons.

That fat man did not have his hands in the air when he was shot. He was reaching. Not the Woman officer's fault that he's too stupid or high to follow her orders, and reach for God knows what. If she wants to put this up for a vote, fine. She will then lose this election. Dumb bitch.
