Quote of the day: Megan Rapinoe

“I am disgusted with the way he has been treated and the fans and hatred he has received in all of this. It is overtly racist. ‘Stay in your place, black man.’ Just didn’t feel right to me. We need a more substantive conversation around race relations and the way people of color are treated.”

– Megan Rapinoe, on her decision to kneel during the national anthem in a show of support for Colin Kaepernick. She was quoted by ESPNW.
