Listen to reason, season is calling.....

Great news, you guys!! With Donald Trump now President of the United States, inequality, racial division and law enforcement abuses have all been eradicated!!

How can I make such a bold claim? Why look no further than the actions of the ultimate Social Justice Warrior of our time.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will stand during the national anthem next season, sources told ESPN on Thursday.

Kaepernick no longer wants his method of protest to detract from the positive change he believes has been created, sources told ESPN. He also said the amount of national discussion on social inequality -- as well as support from other athletes nationwide, including NFL and NBA players -- affirmed the message he was trying to deliver.

As a means of protest, he began sitting during the national anthem in the 2016 preseason before taking a knee for the final preseason contest and 16 regular-season games.

Kaepernick will opt out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Friday and become a free agent next week, sources told ESPN.

In all seriousness, let's just call this what it is. A guy trying to resurrect his moribund NFL career. Nothing at all wrong with that, but to imply otherwise is disingenuous.

But at the risk of sounding too cynical, I also entertained another reason why Kap decided to stand for his country's national anthem. Perhaps he once witnessed his hero doing so in his own home country.

Who says brutal dictators can't be a positive influence on young people?
