Do you think Quinton de Kock should have taken a knee, as required by CSA, "in a united and consistent stance against racism"?

Honestly I think they do this stuff to stay in the headlines. Both sides. The players and CSA.
Yes, what QDK must understand is we living in a time of tokenism, virtue signaling and wokeness. Regardless of our beliefs and values, we need to uphold the façade.Do you think Quinton de Kock should have taken a knee, as required by CSA, "in a united and consistent stance against racism"?
What do you think actually matters? How he treats them as individuals or fake solidarity with a fake movement?But seriously, he is a previous captain and senior player. His teammates have most likely been subjected to some form of discrimination in the past and/or recently. Not all players of colour in the squad are former Saints boys with lawyer fathers. It seems odd to me that he would not consider their feelings or where they stand/kneel on the subject? It also seems odd to me that he would leave them in the lurch mere hours before a must win world cup fixture. Sometimes you need to take one for the team de Kock.
The scary part is that it's a real movement (unfortunately), it's even scarier that people are in fake solidarity with it. In any case. If you want to keep your job, you have to do what the people paying your salary want you to do. If you don't want to, that's fine too. It's quite literally up to the individual to do what they feel is right.What do you think actually matters? How he treats them as individuals or fake solidarity with a fake movement?
The third could be kneeling was hijecked by the thugs named BLM and he refuses to support that gang?If I were to speculate, 2 reasons why de KOCK won't kneel....
1.) religious beliefs IE kneel before no one other than God
2.) a family member was seriously harmed by a person of colour - murdered and/or raped
