Is There a Right to Free Speech by Employees in the Private Sector? (Re Posted)

On Friday, August 26, 2016, San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines by remaining seated during the national anthem before a pre-season game with the Green Bay Packers. He later explained his decision to sit to the national media:

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
