San Fransisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick Refused to Stand ‘to Protest Black Oppression’ as the QB Makes $114 Million Playing Football
I feel like I need to borrow a line from Monty Python after listening to the stupidity and ignorance of Colin Kaepernick, “Can’t I have just a little bit of oppression.”
Over the weekend, San Fransisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick refused to stand during the playing of the United States National Anthem during a preseason game. He told the media he will continue to sit. When asked about his decision to sit while the national anthem played, Kaepernick said he refuses to feel pride in a country that mistreats ‘black people and people of color’. HA, this coming from a man, who has a black father, who was put up for adoption and raised by a white couple to be able to go to college and play a game that makes him $114 million. Yup Colin, the America flag is just keeping you down. WHAT AN ASS. Last time I checked, being oppressed was not in a country where one could make $ 114 million. Colin Kaepernick has been outspoken on racial issues in the past and openly supports the Black Lives Matter movement, need we say more. The cynical side of me says he did this because he knows he was not going to make the team and was going to be cut. He can now use this as his excuse why he was cut and not his terrible play.
With all the suspensions that the NFL hands out for not representing the brand properly, will they let Colin Kaepernick skate on this? Kaepernick can sit all he wants for the National Anthem cuz it might just be from his own easy boy chair on Sundays.
Kaepernick would be #7 sitting between the two orange Gatorade jugs.
Minnesota Vikings offensive guard Alex Boone is among those who do not agree with Kaepernick at all.
In reaction, many 49ers fans are burning their jersey’s in protest.
Furious San Francisco 49ers fans are burning Colin Kaepernick jerseys after he refused to stand for the national anthem as part of a racial protest.
One fan even played The Star-Spangled Banner as he set light to the Number 7 shirt, watching with his hand on his chest as it was reduced to ash.
Another, who uploaded a video to Instagram under the handle Nate3914, called the $19million-per-year athlete an ‘ignorant son of a b****.’
He added: ‘People die every single day defending that flag you refuse to stand for and I won’t stand for that.’
‘This jersey was the worst $50 investment I have ever had … you should never play in the NFL again, move to Canada.’
Thousands of football fans also took to Twitter in order to shout down Kaepernick’s protests, accusing him of being unpatriotic, spoiled, and childish.
The idiots at the liberal sports entertainment network know as ESPN think that it is just Donald Trump supporters who are against Kaepernick’s actions. Hmm, I thought that on air ESPN personalities were not supposed to express their political points of view? At least that is what they told Curt Shilling when they fired him. Of course they only want to spew their liberal propaganda. Newsflash to ESPN, if you think only Trump supporters are pissed off with Kaepernick’s actions, it is no wonder your network is losing market-share, talent and now sucks!
Apparently those who profess to be most offended by stereotyping and profiling are taking a break, to stereotype and profile Republicans and conservatives.
Reacting to criticism of Colin Kaepernick for sitting during the National Anthem on Friday night, ESPN’s Pablo S. Torre took to Twitter with an open mind, and absolutely no sweeping generalizations:
