Does a person kneeling to bring awareness to a problem in this country we all love bother you that much? They are trying to make change and improve this amazing place. What would protesting on "their own time" do? There is a problem and it needs to be addressed and improved upon. The kneeling has brought awareness to that problem like no other non-violent protest has in my lifetime. You kneel as often as you'd like and keep this problem in the spotlight until change is made.
