Colin Kaepernick has been NFL quarterback has accused police of holding legal lynchings of brown and black people for no other reason than racism.
Kaepernick made the comments while accepting an “Ambassador of Conscience Award” from Amnesty International. Kaepernick is best known for destroying the reputation and the business of the NFL by spitting on all of the veterans who bled and died, many of whom were black and brown.
Others followed his lead and now the NFL is paying the price in lower attendance and lost viewership on TV, making the rights to broadcast NFL games much less valuable.
He has become a hero to the left and a pariah to the right. His very name evokes anger in veterans who have no idea why he disrespects them because he has unfounded complaints against the police. But that doesn’t matter to the left that hates the military and the police almost as much as they do Christians.
“Racialized oppression and dehumanization is woven into the very fabric of our nation — the effects of which can be seen in the lawful lynching of black and brown people by the police, and the mass incarceration of black and brown lives in the prison industrial complex,” he said.
Kaepernick made a name for himself for his infamous protest against alleged police brutality in America. He kneeled during the national anthem while he was a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.
He hasn’t been able to sign with another team since 2016, and during the 2017 season, President Trump reignited the controversy by criticizing players who kneeled during the anthem.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired! He’s fired!’” Trump said.
