Taking a knee: The collision between sports and politics

Taking a knee: The collision between sports and politics

A single gesture has evoked fury, drawn praise and created the deepest divisions exposed on the sidelines.

It's been more than a year since Colin Kaepernick first decided to kneel on the sidelines of a 49ers game. Since then, the idea of "taking a knee" has invoked so much anger.

We've seen the conversation unfold in a variety of directions online through Facebook posts and tweets. But in this WFAA special, we hope you'll take a walk with us as we go beyond the digital bumper sticker comments. 

Check out our Facebook live roundtable where we continued the conversation about this controversial issue and heard from panelists on both side of the argument.
