I referenced an image of @kaepernick7 from the internet for this work. It's puzzling to hear people say with immense fervor "love it or leave it" in reference to his peaceful and courageous form of protest. Did he spit, shoot, beat, hang, torture, set on fire any person or any object? No. He took a knee (risking fortune and criticism) to shine light on police brutality against the African American community.  Love it or leave it?! How about he loves it, is troubled by aspects of it, and is willing to work toward improving it? That's true love.
