Adele Stan, AlterNet & Joe Madison, The Joe Madison Show/SiriusXM Urban View join Thom. The opening Sunday of the NFL season saw the protest movement started by San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick grow even bigger. Dozens of players around the league participated – some by refusing to stand during the national anthem – others b n e ing while it was being played – and still others by raising their fists in solidarity. The NFL is a pretty reactionary place – is the fact that this movement only appears to be growing a sign that our society is transforming in a pretty important way? Is it helping us move towards a new form of patriotism?
