Colin Kaepernick's journey from San Francisco 49ers quarterback to civil-rights activist will be chronicled in a documentary series developed by ESPN Films as part of a first-look deal between Walt Disney and Kapernick's Ra Vision Media production company.

The NFL has a National Anthem problem that isn't going away. So what to do? Stop playing it before each game? Grit their teeth and remain silent as dozens of players take the knee? At some point the NFL and the Baby Boomer generation are going to have to learn to stop associating the National Anthem with patriotism. As has become clear, taking the knee is often an even greater display of patriotism than standing.

Play Woody Guthrie's This Land is Your Land before the games. Or pay tribute to whichever branch of the armed services are there by playing their theme, with the lyrics on the big screen so fans can learn. Play "America, the Beautiful," a better song than "The Star Spangled Banner." Play Hendrix's version of the Banner. Play Radiohead's "National Anthem"...

Death metal rock is more apropos.

Perhaps "Master of Puppets" by Metallica.

Guaranteed to Pump You Up!

I always thought that Queen's 'We Are the Champions' would be more apropos for a sporting event.

Walt Disney was racist af, and Disney as a company is sort of like working for Trump in terms of getting a fair deal...

So I'm curious to see how this plays out.

I wonder if this is intended to tone down Kaepernick and get him... what's that word Boaz loves so much... assimilated into white culture.

A Disney hat with afro puffs instead of mouse ears, or even a full afro, would be fun.
