Colin Kaepernick had cameras pointed directly at him last week before the start of the San Francisco 49ers’ Monday night home opener against the Los Angeles Rams. In front of a national TV audience, the 49ers backup quarterback continued his protest against police brutality and unfair treatment of blacks and minorities by taking a knee during the national anthem.
That same day, nearly 2,000 miles away in League City, The Man Cave Cigar Lounge made national headlines, too, as its anti-Kaepernick protest went viral on social media. Outside the shop on Marina Bay Drive, a red T-shirt with Kaepernick’s name and No. 7 is duct-taped to the sidewalk as a doormat.
