People say that this man is not compliant:

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeling during national anthem.

People say that this man was not compliant:

Terrence Crutcher with his arms raised before being killed by Tulsa police.

It makes me wonder what people mean when they want more "compliance."

The only image that comes to mind is this:

Black man forced to kiss the boots of a white man in the Jim Crow South.

Yes, that must be what people want.
