Former NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Would Rather See Colin Kaepernick Protest The National Anthem Than 'Put His Hands Up & Get Murdered'

no title

Marshawn Lynch just made a very powerful point in support of Colin Kaepernick.

In the wake of Tulsa police fatally shooting unarmed Terence Crutcher, the Seattle Seahawks alum just perfectly defended the quarterback's decision to peacefully protest the National Anthem.

On Tuesday, the retired NFL star joined Conan O'Brien on his late-night show to literally stand up for the San Francisco 49ers player, poignantly saying:

"With what's going on, I'd really rather see him take a knee, than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered."

So incredibly well-said, while tragically highlighting the serious police profiling problem throughout our country.

The 30-year-old hopes Colin's movement causes a societal shift across the nation, which will make everyone aware of the racism that still exists, and ultimately end it, adding:

"My take on it is, sh*t's gotta start somewhere. And if that was the starting point, I just hope people open up their eyes to see that there's really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop."

The ex-running back also called out everyone against the athlete's harmless display:

"And, I mean, if you're really not racist, then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have."

Oh look, another bad opinion from Donald Trump.

The presidential candidate loves to talk about how America is failing — except when somebody who doesn't look like him brings it up, and that's just not acceptable to the real estate mogul.

If you remember from the weekend, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick stirred controversy by refusing to stand for the National Anthem before an NFL game — and everybody seems to have an opinion on the matter.

Kaepernick, who noted that the treatment of minorities in this country was still unacceptable, felt as though his refusal to stand was a kind of protest, and boy, has it gotten the country talking.

Unfortunately, that includes Trump…

Speaking on Dori Monson's Seattle-based radio show on Monday, The Donald said this about Kaepernick's activism:

San Diego Padres Baseball Team Accused Of Homophobia After National Anthem Mistake Involving The City's Gay Men's Chorus

no title

Drama down in San Diego — and it's getting icky.

The San Diego Gay Men's Chorus was all set to sing the National Anthem on Saturday night at the San Diego Padres' MLB game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but things went very wrong very quickly — and now, here comes the fall out.

Related: So Happy That Colton Haynes Came Out!

The chorus, which brought one hundred singers to the game to sing the anthem, was trotted out into center field to perform — but something went wrong with the public address system at the team's home stadium, Petco Park.

At the start of their song, a recording of women singing the National Anthem was played over the loudspeaker, and it was never stopped.

The chorus then had to walk off the field after not being able to perform, and the group alleges they faced chants of "you sing like a girl" from the fans while leaving the stadium in shame.

Furthermore, the chorus alleges that the event almost didn't happen in the first place, as the Padres tried to make the entire group buy tickets to the game before they were able to perform.
