As just about everyone else has equivocated on Kaepernick's protest during the national anthem, Harrison said he supported his right to protest—and even said he thought Kaepernick's heart was in the right place—but he felt that the 49ers quarterback went about it the wrong way. For the life of me, I don't understand why every single person commenting on this feels like they know the rules to properly protesting an issue—maybe my Protests for Dummies book got lost in the mail—but everyone is an expert. Is it really that hard to acknowledge the right to protest and just say, "Personally, I wouldn't have done that, but I'm not him"? Am I insane for thinking that is a reasonable approach? But Harrison didn't stop there. He then said that Kaepernick isn't black, and doesn't actually understand the issue he is protesting.

Rodney Harrison: Lack of Patriots in Hall of Fame 'almost a form of discrimination'
Everywhere I go, people hate on the Patriots. Harrison himself has been nominated. Harrison was a very good player who made two Pro Bowls over his year career playing safety for the the Patriots and San Diego Chargers. He was an impact starter on two Super Bowl champions in New England. He was simply unblockable.
Rodney Harrison has a problem with Hall of Fame voters. Everywhere I go, people hate on the Patriots. Law will be the first player from the Patriots teams that won three Super Bowls from to to receive a gold jacket. Tom Brady will obviously join him one day.
