Athletes are raising awareness that unarmed black citizens, who are legally presumed innocent, are executed by police at a rate 2.5 times more frequently than white men. Why are you so scared to discuss that issue? Why are you saying that kneeling is more disrespectful than some guy who wants to use that precious symbol to decorate his sleeveless tap out shirt?

Executed?

What a bullshit statement.  Execution rate?  GMAFB. 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/police-shootings-2017/

Summary:

Unarmed White Men killed by police:  24 (2017) and 17 (2018)

Unarmed Black Men killed by police: 19 (2017) and 12 (2018)

Yes, there are more White Men in the population than Black Men.  But to draw some type of tyrannical conclusion that the 700,000+ police officers in the country are on some kind of black citizen "Execution" spree with 19 unarmed black deaths compared to 24 unarmed white deaths is just ridiculous.

I literally was unaware that the regular season started last Sunday.  So after watching the F1 race, seeing the schedule on the Direct TV guide, reminded me, "Where's Kaepernick?"

Not gettin' any younger, are you Colin?

Another great Thanksgiving last week:  not a single person asked for the TV to be put on to watch football.  
Good riddance to the NFL, at least in my tiny abode.  

Well you missed a good one on Thanksgiving Night! Ole Miss at Mississippi State, people are calling it “The Piss and the Miss” down here.

OM Receiver catches what should be a game tying TD pending the extra point with 4 seconds left in the game and decides to mimic DK Metcalf two years ago, gets on all fours and acts like he’s taking a piss like a dog on the Mississippi State end zone. Gets flagged for 15 yards unsportsmanlike penalty which backs the try up 15 yards. Kicker then pushes it right and State goes on to win by 1 point. Never seen karma kick a team in the nuts so badly.

My favorite quote of all time now is Nick Sabin saying “it wasn’t fair”

I couldn't even follow the train of thought. He basically said it wasn't fair because they didn't give him time to make a second round of substitutions...

Haha whatever, War Damn Eagle!

I imagine this will also affect his post-NFL employment so instead of asking him to bring my BMW around, the venue where he's likely to be employed would better suit my Ford 4-wheel drive...

 

Say, Nike, how's the shoes working out for ya?

"There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism," Kaepernick tweeted.

Now that the NFL has "moved on" from him, maybe he can get back in to the books that he never really did during college.

Iran:  guess what, Colin?  That country is made up of people that are ethnically Persians.  You want to put them in to a "racial" context?  How about "Caucasians for 800, Alex" ?

Farsi:  the language of these Persian people.  It's an Indo-European language from the same linguistic family as... you guessed it... English.  

p.s.  Nike, I'm still not buying any of your shit.  Nor will I ever.

"Kaepernick's agent did not immediately respond to Fox News' request."  I bet.

How do you respond to stupid by your client?  (Don't answer that).  Colin is now in his own little world, perhaps without the ability to play again, and now a confirmed fool.

Nike - great choice of spokesperson.

This is why I find Kaepernick to have so much hubris when he says “we” as if speaking for all people of color. With that frame, it’s entertaining to see a direct contradiction and a nice reminder that the world isn’t just what’s hot in the news.


Summary:

-If white supremacy is such a “problem” he’s done pretty well for himself

-Quotes Booker T Washington as saying those who profit from racism are those keeping it alive (very similar to views/words of Thomas Sowell)

-He received a metric shit ton of money from Nike for his “cause,” would be reduced to irrelevance if not for activism

I might be completely wrong here, but my sense is they’re being sarcastic. The “That stuff ain’t happening with Kamala Biden” remark seemed particularly tongue in cheek.
