What's been going on behind Kaepernick talking a knee, this is an update posted on my Face Book pg, and yes the silence is deafening, even I did hear anything about what he was doing not just saying..especially his efforts at Standing Rock.
Way to go Kaep, putting money and effort behind the spoken word and that dusty knee.

Wonderful.

Refusing to engage with opinions you disagree with is the way to effective discourse... oh wait..

*facepalm*

Colin Kaepernick was used as a pawn ie tool to psychologically evaluate the american public by sitting for the national anthem to express an american right which is freedom of speech and since his statement or protest was designed to stand up for the treatment of his ethnicity those "Heroes" and those "Mericans" rootin tootin up their own sisters yin yang would look psychologically insane.

Most people are easily emotionally compromised before they acutally put all the details together and open their mouths on stuff that they have absolutely no reason to speak about until they have put forth the required effort to understand both parties.

Without understanding both sides their is absolutely no reason to speak.

No, refusing to watch a random YouTube video when the OP can't be bothered to give a synopsis other than to mention the name of a spoiled toolbag.

"Spoiled toolbag" is not a phrase you would be using, if you had viewed and looked into the facts presented in the video you refused to watch.

I wont watch that because that guy looks like a tool/Bernie supporter, real reason is I couldn't care less about that idiot ball player, he can hang himself and his blm girlfriend from a flag pole for all I care.

He should get cultured in the lifestyles of east Africa for 3 years, come back and have a little gratitude.

why hate on his dumb opinions when you can hate on him being an aweful QB

the guy is a joke and is only doing his victim classes and benefits to not seem like a total ahole

people are silent because he will be a backup third string QB and irrelevant next year

So because he is exercising his freedom of speech, you want him to go live somewhere that doesn't recognize freedom of speech as a right?

'They' said:

He shouldn't sit during the anthem because it was disrespectful to vets and those killed in action. So he started to kneel.

He shouldn't protest the unequal treatment of non-whites by the justice system and should instead work towards improving the lives of inner city folks. So he does both.

He isn't the problem. His critics are incapable of seeing the problem he is protesting against.

um no

maybe people have a hard time seeing a QB who makes millions, adopted by white parents as someone they can relate to.

no one is saying we cant do better but prior to the media love fest for him he didnt do anything. hell he even said he didnt vote which discredits him even more.

i really disliked the guy before but now he's being hailed a social justice hero and its kinda disgusting when you have players who actually help people far more and without a need for cameras documenting it
