Colin Kaepernick's decision to protest racial inequality by kneeling during the national anthem has become a hot-button issue since August when the protest started.

On one side, you have people like President Obama, who supports Kaepernick's 'constitutional right' to protest. On the other side, though, there's plenty of people like Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who completely disagrees with the way Kaepernick's protesting.

During a recent interview with Yahoo!, Ginsberg called Kaepernick's protest 'disrespectful.'

"I think it's really dumb of them," Ginsburg said of the protesters, via "Would I arrest them for doing it? No. I think it's dumb and disrespectful."

The 83-year-old justice then went on to compare Kaepernick's method of protest to another method of protesting.

"I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it's a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn't lock a person up for doing it," Ginsberg said.

The Supreme Court Justice doesn't necessarily disagree with the issue that Kaepernick's protesting, she's just not happy with how he's doing it.

"If they want to be stupid, there's no law that should be preventive," Ginsburg said. "If they want to be arrogant, there's no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that."

Most of America seems to agree with Ginsberg's point of view. A poll conducted in September found that 47 percent of Americans disagree with Kaepernick's method of protest. However, 80 percent of Americans support his right to protest.

Even though Ginsberg disagrees with Kaepernick, she doesn't want to see anyone ever get arrested for his type of protest, or any type of peaceful protest.

"I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act. But it's dangerous to arrest people for conduct that doesn't jeopardize the health or well-being of other people. It's a symbol they're engaged in," Ginsberg said.

Since starting his protest back in August, more than 20 players have joined Kaepernick's cause. In Week 4 alone, there were at least 24 players besides Kaepernick who protested during the national anthem by either kneeling or raising their fist.

Kaepernick had orginally decided that he was going to sit during the anthem. However, he decided that kneeling would be more respectful after talking about it with former Green Beret Nate Boyer.
