Colin Kaepernick spoke to the media in the 49ers facility on Sunday, discussing the intricacies of Chaos Theory and Abel’s Binomial Theorem. Just kidding. He elaborated on the reasons for his protest, and calling America racist.
Someone needs to get ESPN and 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick a room. Preferably a room in another country. Yet, a room nonetheless.
If you’re waiting for the NFL Players Association to step in, in the wake of the Colin Kaepernick sit-protest during the National Anthem on Friday night, and remind players that they are NFL players first and foremost, not politicians. Or, at the very least, that hugely controversial political statements would have been much better had they occurred in June, as opposed to two weeks before the start of the season, you’re about to be mighty disappointed.
Apparently those who profess to be most offended by stereotyping and profiling are taking a break, to stereotype and profile Republicans and conservatives.
Not everyone is okay with Colin Kaepernick’s chosen form of protest, over what he perceives as “oppression of black people and people of color."
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in their preseason game against the Green Bay Packers on Friday night. “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 against Green Bay.
Earlier this week, we brought you the story of Russell Wilson’s wedding planner, and her statement that the Wilsons scrapped North Carolina as a potential wedding destination, due to the state’s HB2 law regarding transgender bathrooms. Enclosed in that story was my fervent hope that the wedding planner got it all wrong, and that the proudly Christian Wilson had decided to forego the Tarheel State for some other reason. Well…that didn’t happen.
How can over 90% of Native Americans be wrong? Well, according to USA Today, it’s when they say that the word Redskin is not a slur. Badly needing a comeback to the Washington Post poll in May, where American Indians resoundingly rejected the idea of the term ‘Redskin’ as a slur, USA Today decided to seek out an expert to tell American Indians just how silly and wrong they are
Much like Santiago, struggling to bring his heavily-damaged prize into shore, before being torn to shreds by predators watching to see how large and vulnerable his doomed catch has become, the liberal sports media is working overtime to cement the notion of Ryan Lochte as “Great White Villain,” before the Brazilian Police’s version of his gas station exploits starts reading more and more like a massive lie.
Pro Football Talk gleefully reported on Monday, that Russell Wilson and his fiancée Ciara decided to ditch the idea of having their wedding in North Carolina. Why is that cause for glee?
It’s been a rough week for Louisiana, with a horrific flood that left thousands homeless. An event so moving it prompted the lefties in the mainstream media to make virtually no appeals to President Obama --for days-- to visit the disaster area. Unlike in 2005 where, according to the media, President Bush was doing his level best to intentionally drown the 9th ward.
More than 20 Team USA athletes have clearly articulated their faith in God through interviews, social media and blog posts. By giving God the glory in their successes, and gracefully yielding to His will in their disappointments, these stars are an inspiration to all of us.
