The Army Green Beret who suggested Colin Kaepernick kneel in protest is still surprised by the backlash it drew | Business Insider

The person who advised Kaepernick was a former member of the U.S. Army Special Forces. The man is Nate Boyer. Kaepernick contacted him for advice and Boyer suggested that kneeling may be more respectful than sitting or walking out during the National Anthem. As conversations rise about how people should be protesting against the killing of George Floyd, Kaepernick is still the subject of many of those discussions. As many criticizing the NFL players means of protesting, Boyer still stands behind Kaepernick. In an interview with Reuters Boyer said, ā€œHe was standing up for- or taking a knee for millions and millions of people that donā€™t have a platform and donā€™t have a voice.ā€
