Kaepernick: “I Will Continue To Sit”

In a 20 minute interview with reporters on Sunday, San Francisco Back-up Quarterback Colin Kaepernick said that he will continue to sit during the national anthem until there is “significant change” with police brutality.

He did not give specifics as to what that change would be.

Kaepernick has been in deep support of Black Lives Matter and has constantly raised awareness through social media on xenophobia, racism and human rights since last year.

It has been reported that in July 2015, Kaepernick converted to Islam and he is engaged to Nessa Diab, a Black Lives Matter activist who promotes what she calls “authentic Islam.”

Since Kaepernick did not specify what changes he wanted to see, we can only assume that he agrees with those individuals that are influencing his life.

Here are just a few demands from Black Lives Matter:

  1. End to zero-tolerance school policies and arrests of students
  2. The removal of police from schools
  3. End fines and fees as a part of criminal penalty
  4. End Immigration laws
  5. End capital punishment
  6. End predicting police software
  7. Get rid of police equipment such as helmets and riot gear
  8. “an end to all jails, detention centers, youth facilities and prisons as we know them.”

Those just a few of the so called “commonsense” suggestions from the organization that Kaepernick agrees with so if you think he is going to stand anytime soon, he won’t if this is what he is waiting on.

Ultimately, we don’t hate Kaepernick.  He is a talented young man that is misinformed.  He is being influenced by a powerful media that cares nothing about fairness and Kaepernick is a victim of that.  We hope his career is not severely impacted by a media that cares nothing for him or anyone else.  They care about the money and as long as they can keep the emotions high, they can convert the click and viewers into money.  This is their only goal.

As far as Kaepernick goes, we would welcome the opportunity to educate him and show him the “full” picture of a portrait that he is risking his career and reputation on.

    Protesting the actions of one’s country is a true patriotic duty, especially when doing so will attract the vitriol of the masses. Muhammad Ali, Olympic medalists Tommie Smith and John Carlos, Dixie Chicks all have paid dearly for their convictions when they criticized the power elite. I appreciate every one of them because they showed the courage to put actions behind their convictions. Colin is pointing out some of the problems with policing training, tactics, and use of deadly force particularly against minorities in this country. He wants accountability and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Does the size of their gold chains signify the amount of “oppression”? What a joke.

    He converted to “authentic Islam.” Does that mean he’s going to blow up innocent people too?
