Overrated NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is refusing to stand for the national anthem before football games. Kaepernick claims he is disrespecting the anthem, and by proxy, America, because he feels African Americans are being “oppressed.”
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has willingly immersed himself into controversy by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States.
Oh, do go on! While you’re at it, don’t forget to regale us about the white couple who adopted you after you were abandoned by your African-American father.
“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.”
You see, to someone like Kaepernick, America is a terrible, racist country created simply to keep black people down. It is an interesting theory for someone who has a net worth of $16 million, awarded to him by terrible, racist Americans.
To Colin Kaepernick, waiting in line at a Starbucks is oppression; for people in Darfur, oppression is the continuing genocide of men, women, and children.
America is arguably the least racist nation on the face of the Earth, and yet someone like this douche canoe will still bash the country which gave him so much, and asked for so little.
