US Women’s National Team Soccer Player Megan Rapinoe has been taking a knee during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner as a sign of protest against social injustice. But she’s both wrong and misguided in her actions. Civil disobedience when serving your country does not received the same leas as making a social protest privately or with a non-state-sanctioned company.
Rapinoe serves the United States as a player wearing the national colors and the flag. Unlike Colin Kaepernick who merely serves the private organization of the San Francisco 49ers. If Rapinoe wants the privilege of serving America, she must serve and honor that privilege because she is a paid national ambassador.
