Normally I wouldn’t waste my breath, time, or energy writing about that racist piece of garbage Colin Kaepernick, but yesterday he solidified his status as a subhuman cockroach.
Colin Kaepernick has called for the release of Mumia Abu-Jamal, imprisoned since 1982 for the killing of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. Abu-Jamal has maintained his innocence and his supporters have long claimed his trial was flawed.
Of course they believe that, because a majority of Americans know nothing of the case, and read nothing about the case from those who were present.
Similarly, Mumia’s brother was at the scene, and has never uttered a word about the incident. You’d think one’s brother would scream about Mumia’s innocence if that were the case.
The former NFL quarterback, who famously took a knee during the performance of the national anthem in 2016 in protest of police brutality, noted that Abu-Jamal has been in prison for longer than Kaepernick has been alive.
“We’re in the midst of a movement that says Black Lives Matter. If that is the case, then Mumia’s life and freedom must matter,” said Kaepernick before recounting the published writing, radio broadcasts, and mentorship Abu-Jamal has done while incarcerated. “Even while living in the hells of the prison system, Mumia still fights for our human rights. We must continue to fight for him and his human rights.”
Abu-Jamal – born Wesley Cook – shot Faulkner after he stopped his brother for a vehicle violation. Jamal saw the car stop, ran to Faulkner, and shot him first in the back, then fired a shot into Faulkner’s face, killing him. This is the type of animal Colin Kaepernick believes should be released into the population.
Go f**k yourself, Kaepernick.
