Ruth Bader Ginsburg apologizes to Colin Kaepernick after criticizing anthem protest

Washington (CNN)Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said on Friday she was "inappropriately dismissive and harsh" in a recent interview when she said she thought it was "really dumb" for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others to refuse to stand for the national anthem.

In a statement released by the court's public information officer, Ginsburg said she had been "barely aware of the incident or its purpose" and that she should have "declined to respond" when asked the question by Yahoo's Katie Couric.

"Some of you have inquired about a book interview in which I was asked how I felt about Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players who refused to stand for the national anthem," Ginsburg said. "Barely aware of the incident or its purpose, my comments were inappropriately dismissive and harsh. I should have declined to respond."

Of course. You have to apologize for anything these days.  Backtracking to "I should have declined to respond" clearly shows that.

The white supremacist institution of policing that stole Breonna Taylor’s life from us must be abolished for the safety and well being of our people.

Wait, I thought defund the police didn't mean actually get rid of the police.  Are people now going to try to change the meaning of the word abolish also?

You really need to watch the documentary Social Dilemma. Actually thought of you while watching it.

Was it served?  Those two white men weren't arrested for starting this it seems.  The officer has no time served after pleading guilty to "simple battery". 

It's a step in the right direction, but not sure justice was served.

Honestly... they didn't get off completely and go right back on the job. That's the closest thing you can get to "justice" in these cases nowadays.

I agree.  And I'll certainly take it.  As I said, it's a step in the right direction.  In fact, from the officer's standpoint, I think it's about as good as we can expect.  I'm more disappointed in the fact that they never followed up on the two individuals that brought all of this on.  But for their actions, none of this happens.

I would imagine it is the same institution that is responsible for 99.5% of white people who are killed every year that are NOT killed by police.
