Two Standars - Tim Cook vs. Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick has chosen to kneel instead of stand for the National Anthem. Tim Cook and Apple made an illegal agreement not to pay taxes of $14.5 billion dollars.
Apple has chosen not to to pay its fair share of taxes to the European Union for its ability to conduct commerce in this region, use its infrastructure, and incur massive profits.
Kaepernick has chosen to kneel to protest the continual racism of institutions of power within our nation. He wants Americans to realize this nation that claims of liberty and freedom are not really either for vast swaths of Americans.
The intentions of Kaepernick have been towards justice. The intentions of Apple and Tim Cook have been to keep profits above honoring the nations in which they do business.
The actions of Apple are intentional deception and have no pure motive; yet who is receiving the wrath of red meat America? May justice roll down from the hillsides -- or perhaps is called out from the sidelines.
