Sharpe stated that protests are supposed to be uncomfortable:
“I’ve tried talking. I’ve tried it. But you won’t listen. So I must take a stand. And then when you say, ‘well, what is he doing?’ Then I get to tell you”
In response to Swinney saying “I just think there’s a right way to do things and I don’t think two wrongs make a right,” and criticizing Kaepernick’s method, Sharpe issued the following statement:
“When is the right time? When can we start talking about the 400 years? When is the right time? Tell me the right time.”
Sharpe continued asking for what specific point in time he should be waiting for before starting a protest. Kaepernick’s protest has created a divide within the country, with those supporting the protest, and those opposing it. One thing remains clear, this protest doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon.
