Hi son. It’s a free country. You are allowed to protest, talk crap about police, kneel down for the national anthem, draw unwanted media attention for your team, and you can even hate the country you live in.
However…….being a free country also means that employers are free to turn you down for a job based on how you exercise your freedoms.
Your freedoms can have consequences. This doesn’t mean stay silent and act vanilla. It means be conscious of your decisions.
It’s like the guy with the face tattoo who had a dream of selling mobility scooters to senior citizens. The face tattoo limited his options, and seniors won’t buy anything from him. Colin Kaepernick limited his options. It was his choice. We will see if it was worth it for him.
Love you bud!
