What Would You Prefer?

So folks are still blasting Colin Kapernick’s form of protest even after a year. We’re still debating this whole issue. People have just taken to not watch football then let Kaepernick’s protest spark any kind of dialogue. Which hey, that your decision. You’re grown.

But let’s start at the top. Because we’re not talking about the real issue. Everyone’s made Kaepernick’s protest into something it’s not. Here’s what I mean:

Kaepernick isn’t protesting against Trump. He’s not blasting soldiers. He’s not said that he has been oppressed. Statistically, he’s better than several starting QB’s (though not Brady stats). He’s not protesting for antifa or anything like that.

He kneels because

Oscar Grant
Tamir Rice
Eric Garner
Philando Castile
Sandra Bland
Terrance Crutcher

Alton Sterling
Jordan Edwards
Sam Dubose

Michael Brown
John Crawford III
Akai Gurley
Rumain Brisbon
Eric Harris
Walter Scott

Have been killed by law enforcement.

These are all the ones that I could think of off the top of my head. If I looked them up, I’d probable have a longer post. But these were real people who were killed without a trial. And their killers have all walked. Free. Absolutely free. You want to talk about being prolife? Here you go. It’s all right here.

So let us then ask this question: What would YOU prefer? Because when black folks march, y’all get upset. When black folks riot you get upset, when black folks kneel you get upset. So is it the form of the protest, or the subject?

what would you prefer they do? Sweep it under the rug? Ignore the videos? Carry on? Shameful is what it is.

Kapernick is quietly, peacefully protesting which is his right. In fact, either nothing Tebow and Kapernick have the right to kneel, or nether of them do.

One thought on “What Would You Prefer?”

  1. Continue to hold your opinions and conclusion if you will, but you need to get some of your facts straight. For starters, the killer of Walter Scott, officer Michael Slager, did NOT “walk free, Absolutely free.” He was taken into custody shortly after the tragic event, and has been in prison ever since, and will likely be so for years. And Michael Brown traumatized a convenience store owner and robbed goods there, and shortly after ignored a lawful directive from a patrolman to quit walking down the middle of the street and get up on the sidewalk. Instead, he rushed the policeman, reached into his car and grabbed the patrolman’s gun, which went off in the car during the struggle, then backed off while threatening the policeman, then turned around and rushed the policeman again, leaving the policeman no option but to defend himself or be killed.

    Meanwhile, many of us don’t disagree with Kapernick’s right to protest, but feel he might be happier earning millions playing for the NFL of Upper Volta.
