Episode 146 - Colin Kaepernick, NFL Boycotting, and Self-Restraint on Social Media

In Episode 146, Keith and Justin discuss the recent events and protests surrounding the NFL. What is the purpose of "taking a knee" during the National Anthem? Are sports being ruined by politics? How is disrupting the status quo the purpose of protest movements such as BlackLivesMatter? Does it make sense to boycott the NFL for being "unpatriotic?" How do we communicate (or fail to communicate) these tensions through our social media personas? What are some practical steps to take before making an ass of yourself on Facebook or Twitter? How can we begin to be responsive instead of reactionary? And should we be responsible to have a definitive stance on every issue? Listen to find out! In the end, we are joined by our good friend Wesley as we talk a bit about his travels in Germany, Romania, and France, as well as other miscellaneous topics.
