Gabe Kapler, manager of the MLB baseball team San Francisco Giants, has announced that he will protest the National Anthem. Kapler says he does not like the direction the country is headed in the wake of the Uvalde shooting. He sees the National Anthem happening right before a moment of silence for the lives lost in Uvalde. So his reaction is to simply remain in the back, outside of the view of the general public, while the National Anthem is playing. Kapler thought about taking a knee at first to protest in the same fashion that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did. He decided that wouldn’t be a good idea because of the offense it would cause. Kapler published a nearly 800-word blog post on his website to further elaborate on his decision to protest the anthem.
