NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick explains why he sat during national anthem

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
The 49ers issued a statement about Kaepernick's decision: "The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose and participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem."
Is he using protest to deflect from his performance on the field? A way of possibly coercing his team into not releasing him, perhaps? Me thinks thou are insincere.

Is he doing the armpit smell test there? That's okay. Who hasn't done the armpit smell test?

Cucks gotta cuck.

A rerun of John Carlos back in '68.

Try that in any country where people of color predominate and see how long you get to live.

Kaespernick is a cuck? Seems like he is channeling some A-Rod.

ndspinelli said...

At least he did this horseshit in SF. Try it playing for Dallas.

Makes me glad I don't watch football. The fucker doesn't need more eyeballs.

People of all races in Kansas City are smiling and keeping their quarterback.

Obama set the precedent - the time he cupped his nuts during the Pledge.

AllenS said...

Go ahead, Colin, pick another country that you'd love to live in.

Colin is underpaid at $19 million dollars a year, which is why he has been sucking as a QB.

Blame the Man! Especially given Colin is not acting like one.

Shit like from Colin makes even Johnny Football look good in comparison.

As I noted at Chip's thread, those clauses in Colin's contract means he gets way less than $19 million a year given how much he sucks.

So the man is taking advantage of another brother! Before you know it he might be working for $15 a hour!

Kaepernick is paving the way for an excuse for being out of the league because he sucks. "RAAAACISM!"

I thought Kap was 1/2 white or maybe he was raised by whites. Anyway, everyone knows he's dealing BS. What's his real game? Does he want to be traded?

Or maybe he's just a moron. Judging by his QB decisions, that could be the truth.

Trooper York said...

The NFL is slowly but surely ensuring it's own destruction. By bowing to feminzation it is cutting it's own throat.

Make Football American Again!

rcocean, you are absolutely correct. I did a post on this. Kaepernick's half white, half black, but raised by a loving couple of Wisconsin cheesemakers. His claim of racism, people did not realize his parents were his parents.

No fucking shit.

I know Italians who married Irish and their kids didn't look like their Sicilian fathers. Imagine that. But their Sicilians fathers were mostly there--where was Kap's bio dad?

Richard Sherman grew up in Compton and had friends killed by gangs. He noted it was not the cops that shot his friends, but other blacks.

Map is a poser and a loser who is going the A-Rod route. The difference is A-Rod at least did have a career before he went all roid gay. Kap is heading down the Johnny Football failure path.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

I did a post on this too, with a gif showing Kap getting sacked.

He is not standing then either.

Troop is right about the feminization of football. I blame Goodell.

rcocean said...

I noticed the guy who won the Decathlon was a half-black, raised by his white mom in an all-white community. The father skipped out when he was two.

Shades of Obama.

Racism? LOL.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Fucking Goodell

ndspinelli said...

rc, Kaepernick is a mullato. He was adopted and raised by a loving white family in Milwaukee. His black father abandoned his teenage mother and she gave Kaepernick for adoption. He grew up a Packer fan.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Kaepernick is just uttering alt left language. Flip it around and it's alt right.

Sixty Grit said...

No one over the age of 6 should wear a football jersey with the name and number of an actual professional player on it. In that picture the are a number of Gronkowskis. That is childish and a bit disturbing. Are they in a cult? Is The Gronk like Sun Myung Moon?

The funniest thing about their worship is that the mother church of the NFL hates them. Now if they killed dogs or beat their girlfriends, then they would be observing the proper rituals and they would be blessed among their peers.

The NFL and NASCAR are nothing more than rigged freak shows like wrestling.

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

I disagree with 60 on this one.

It's okay up to age 10.

And for women irrespective of age.

But then again, among this crowd, I'm what passes for a liberal.
