Robert Townsend: "Colin Kaepernick is a level-headed, down-to-earth guy. When you talk about taking a knee, many people in sports make a lot of money and then say 'I'm good, I'll make a donation to a charity, I'll do that...' but he was so affected by the injustices going on that he goes 'I have to do something.' Then somebody says, 'you should take a knee and make a peaceful protest.' But who knew that taking that knee would be the shot that was heard around the world?"
