Jocelyn Benson, CEO of RISE, recognizes that the medium can kill the message when a protest becomes a bigger story than the issues which prompted it."As you see, things get injected into the political discourse in a very divisive, binary way.

It is frustrating to see political figures try to boil this down to a framework that works best for their base, as opposed to what the issues really are: There's injustice in the world, and players are using their platform to draw attention to it," she said."This was never about anything having to do with the anthem or kneeling," Benson added.

Still, with Kaepernick out of the NFL for "football reasons," national anthem protests and the social justice wing of the NFL were in danger of becoming a back-burner story. Insane Clown Posse fans are holding a political rally on the National Mall, guys. But it wasn't about police brutality or racial equality. Owners, always careful to play both sides toward what remains of the middle, issued vague condemnations of "divisive" remarks and campfire-song affirmations about freedom and equality.

Players, swept up in the emotions of the weekend, struggled to stay on message.

"It's always been about raising awareness around ways to advance equality and ensure that our country lives up to the ideals of the Constitution."The protest was not initially about voting, either.

Kaepernick famously announced that he would not vote for either candidate in the last presidential election.

It was an anti-Trump demonstration, or at least an anti-getting-cussed-out-by-a-sitting-president-for-political-activity demonstration. At least, that's what they were supposed to be about initially.

RISE to Vote is exactly what it sounds like: a voter registration program for both athletes and the communities they influence.

That's the element of Kaepernick's initial protest that is best drowned out by other voices."We're here to say that voting is one of the most tangible things you can do to change something that you want to see changed," Benson said.

"That's an important message that did get lost among players who talked about not voting in the past that we want to rectify."Demonstrations are great.

They'll throw an Alice in Wonderland themed party, and go as their favorite characters. Join Audrey, Jessie and Noelle as they prep for an awesome party.

The crowd has always been too dedicated to being part of the problem, dating back to the civil rights movement, to listen to the likes of Kaepernick.
