The genocide in Darfur is currently standing as the first genocide to occur in the 21st century.

It’s not only an expression about his personal belief, but also a useful political strategy. Religion was taken as a mechanism in his speech.

This can be seen in “Congress Commits to Fighting Religious Persecution” from CBN News, which talks a bill signed by former US president Barack Obama that establishes more frequent actions against terrorism and religious persecution (Congress Commits to Fighting Religious Persecution).

The bill also creates a master list of people imprisoned for their faith, which can be used to integrate conversations about religious freedom in foreign policy (Congress Commits to Fighting Religious Persecution). Not only should others stand up for those persecuted, but those who are oppressed should fight for themselves. According to “Egyptian Christians Living in Fear for the Future”, despite many Coptic Christians fearing the future, many are becoming stronger.

Kaepernicks’ choice to protest during the national Anthem has alarmed Americans about the injustice of police brutality. Again, his protest has shown that respecting our soldier goes far beyond honoring our flag for 60 seconds, but that it takes us, the people to implement and use our constitutional rights that were fought for. Also, Colin Kaepernicks’ protest highlighted societal flaws, and encouraged the American people to push for justice on the issue of police
