None of the players are saying that they, themselves, are oppressed. Kaepernick made kind of splash and then it started dieing down until Trump, the draft dodger, started tweeting about it. Each team has 53 players and only one, or two, or maybe three take a knee.
The whole thing has been blown way out of proportion.
