This author misrepresents what the “controversy” is. I find kapernick’s assertion the country is racist and there is systemic racism in America based on the crimes of a tiny handful of cops is itself racist. Condeming what is probably the most progressive and fair country in the world over a few rogue cops is wrong and bigoted. The fact that he chooses the flag to aim his racist hatred act at is the final straw.
A lot of people (including the minister at Aretha Franklin’s funeral) believe the problems of blacks in America can more fairly be laid at their own door: broken families, poor culture of supporting education, glorification of crime, drugs and hatred of cops intrinsic to the pop music and culture of many inner city blacks, poor work ethic, victim and grievance culture that blames their problems on ‘the white man’ (see Obama’s Rev Wright).
I’m sick of being called a racist and sick of black activists and their leftist cohorts blaming the problems of black society on white people and the American system in general. The entire protest is ridiculous on its face when presented by a black millionaire who’s never accomplished anything other than throwing a football, yet is lionized and enriched far beyond his intelligence or worth. Kaepernick is a racist who smears white people with the brush of racism.
He further denigrates and insults all policemen in this country with his bigoted and inaccurate statements. He further degrades the issue by doing things like wearing socks with cops depicted as pigs.
He’s a despicable, divisive race-baiter and deserves no credit for bravery or leadership. He’s a demogogue and a rabble rouser who seeks to foment hatred of white people under false pretences, that they ‘keeping the black man down’. He belongs to a long line of race hustlers like Jesse Jackson, Sharpton,
Rev. Wright and Obama himself. This kind of reckless dishonesty and bigotry is what drove the election of PDT. Thank God we have a leader who pushes back instead of folding and apologizing every time a false charge of racism is thrown around.
Kapernick should be called out, shunned and condemned for his hate speech, not celebrated. He richly deserves his ouster from the NFL for his egregious behaviour, and every player who ‘takes a knee’ is likewise a race-baiting hustler who accomplish nothing other than fomenting victimhood and hatred among blacks and resentment and anger among whites. In less civil terms, fuck him and anybody who supports his lies, hatred and bigotry. He’s the very epitome of racism and prejudice.
