Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for our National Anthem during his last preseason game. The has been quarterback who lost his job to Blaine Gabbert last season is either just being a scum bag, or wants attention that he’s not getting on the field. His reasoning for his heinous action was,
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Okay Colin, what are you trying to say? That all of America is racist, and you could not care about our armed forces that are protecting your ass in America? If you do not like how minorities are being treated in America there are better ways to show it rather than sitting during our National Anthem and disrespecting our men and women of all ethnicities in our armed forces.
Take a page out of Dwayne Wade’s playbook and send out a tweet about why you are upset, you don’t have to go piss off and disrespect all of America. For those who did not see Wade’s tweet:
“My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough”
Here is something that is simple and is not going to irritate our nation. People will get Dwayne Wade’s message rather than just remembering that you were being a class A douche and did not stand for our national anthem.
So Kaepernick grow up, stand up for the National Anthem and be happy that you are able to play professional football in greatest country AMERICA.
I would also like to applaud OL Justing Pugh for saying,
“I will be STANDING during the National Anthem tonight. Thank you to ALL (Gender,Race,Religion)that put your lives on the line for that flag”
So thank you Pugh for speaking for the rest of the NFL.
