ESPN: Ex-Green Beret Nate Boyer pens open letter to Trump, Kaepernick, NFL and America

Dialog is one thing and I’m all for it, but the issue is much deeper than just kissing and making up. This protest was never about political division; it’s about a deep wound in the heart of America caused by centuries of systemic racism. If Trump and Kaepernick shook hands and became great friends, which is not unthinkable, our country would still be left divided, with one group suffering injustice that another group refuses to acknowledge, and a third group perpetuating and capitalizing on the tragic brokenness. If we love each other it will show not in our grand proclamations of unity but in the ability of each person to live in peace, dignity, and security.
 
If we want to make America great we have to come together to fix those things that are not great. It will never be great as long as our discourse is driven by fear and anger.
