But it worked in a way. When you strip off the rhetoric, many of the apologists for police brutality are ok with it when it is directed against scary minorities and scary immigrants. Obviously when the police are investigating Trump or the Bundy clan then according to those same people, the cops are evil.

I think Kaepernick is smart enough to know that a black man 'disrespecting' the flag and military to stand up for black people would trigger conservatives, but did he think it would lead to a productive conversation that would lead to productive solutions to police brutality or was he just trying to trigger people who hate multiculturalism and value tradition/security? Obviously the only person who can answer that is him though.
