If He Really Wants To Help Blacks, Colin Kaepernick Needs To Put Up Or Shut Up

Much has been made recently of Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for our national anthem to protest what he sees as the oppression of black people. It now appears Kaepernick’s actions have influenced other players, with additional NFL athletes refusing to stand at attention for the anthem, and some even raising the black power fist in protest.

As a black person who is a football fan, I state plainly: this is stupid.

    “As a black person who is a football fan, I state plainly: this is stupid.”

    As a white person, I think watching a bunch of illiterate Negroids running about after a pigskin “ball” is stupid.

    It seems a lot of people who are very well off, because of a foolish game, are unable to think for themselves of how to use the benefits they have acquired,to help those they are protesting for. Weak and silly men.

  • “Thus instead of insulting our nation and Americans who actually like
    what our flag stands for, these NFL athletes should use their money and
    fame to work towards actual solutions to the black issues they purport
    to care about. Here are four ways they can do so.”

    What that guy said.

    They have the means to do it, too.

      You can’t help folk who won’t help themselves.
      He and his ilk should be shipped off to Liberia.

      • They will have to because glass bottoms don’t remain attached forever.

    Time to start an all white national league perhaps.

    If as few as ten percent of the middle class folk who shell out for tickets went on a buyers’ strike for three weeks, Colin and his pals would be jumping to their feet!

    Why aren’t professional sports representative of society ? … They are racists ! I stopped watching football on tv because I dropped cable years ago … and the average iq at an nfl game is around 85 – before drinking.
