My level of care has gone from medium-low, wanting the NFL to give trump the finger, to negative 1 billion trillion.

While the gesture has been poisoned by Trump, lets hope the awareness that it brought with it doesn’t fade away.

Kneeling actually is not that bad of a gesture. It is a relatively respectful even humble form of disrespect,  protest. Turning own back on flag, flipping the middle finger or raised arm with fist (Black Power salute) would be a more agressive gesturing.
