I HAVE ONE GIGANTIC QUESTION FOR COLIN KAEPERNICK AND THE NFL PLAYERS TAKING A KNEE ON THEIR NATION AND THE BLACK COMMUNITY. WHERE IS THE BEEF?
WHERE IS THE ATHLETIC BEEF?
Do you remember the Wendy ‘s commercial ‘ Where ‘s the Beef ‘ ? Well America and the Black community needs less of this. Simply giving money to a cause. Or speaking out against it. If you are that passionate we understand that the issues in our black communities need a lot more than money and words. They need action.
Colin Kaepernick and pro sports players. You can do more than simply taking a knee. You are capable of amazing feats but you choose to take a knee? But we remind you also. As in the above video of Civil Rights heroes of our past. You can do nothing without what they who have come before you have already done. So that you could have the ability to even take a knee. Here is a video of the athletic Colin Kaepernick. We need more of this from you in the community .
WHERE ‘S THE BEEF COLIN? WHERE ‘S THE BEEF?
SYMBOLS ARE NICE BUT WE NEED ACTION
In the face of Colin Kaepernick and other millionaires doing the most oxymoronic and ironic thing of taking a knee at a football game. When I watched this video of real courage and heroes. It made me think even less of what these pro athletes are doing. They are simply taking a knee. The greatest athletes in the world are doing the most unatheltic things . Taking a knee? Colin Kaerpernick known above all for his speed , power, and athleticism. The ability to run , dodge, break tackles and make the best of the best miss. He is doing the opposite. Taking a knee. I think this is very poetic. Because he is doing the opposite of what he needs to do. He is defeating his own stated purpose by fighting the nation in which gave him freedom. Who gave him the stage that he is on. The Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the struggle of his black and white forefathers who made freedom and change possible through non-violent means.
COMMUNISM AND LIBERTY AND JUSTICE? WHICH ONE COLIN K
While teaming up with Communist and anarchist in the Black Lives Matter and other political movements who wish to bring tyranny over America and not Liberty and Justice. How oxy moronic and ironic. Hypocritical? Not sure where his heart is just yet. But for some the word hypocrite also fits in. They know exactly what they are doing. Just starting trouble by using lies to exploit a truth and magnifying it until it is not true. But just a political ploy to meet a religious and political means.
THE REAL DEAL CIVIL RIGHTS OF OUR PAST
As I watched this video of our Parents, Forefathers, and heroes of the past. Most who will forever go nameless but for their own family members. As I watched them being assaulted in broad day light. Attacked because of their color. Men in suits and nice hats being kicked around only because they wanted dignity and respect for themselves and their children. Women in skirts being attacked by police dogs. I think of what real courage and resolve is.
GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY THEN WE CAN TALK
While there are many people of all colors working in the trenches to help the black community. Doing the hard work of trying to stop people from committing Generational Suicide. Do you understand how hard that is? People such as police officers, lawyers, churches, politicians and charities. Working hard to convince people not to destroy themselves, their communities, and their children. Instead of working with these groups black people have chosen to make rap videos and protest against the system that is helping them. Gravitating to the people and system that is hurting them.
Case in point is Colin Kaepernick. Adopted by White parents after his parents where unable or willing to take care of him. He was seen as nice young man before all of this happened. Well before the last two years where he had some run ins with his coaches. Some would say that the signs were seen then. Signs of rebellion. Wasting his great talent and stooping from the top to the bottom of the NFL Quaterbacking tree. Biting the hands that fed him and created him. Gave him such an awesome platform that anyone would listen to him. How fitting , poetic and oxymoronic.
The greatest athletes in the world are not running to improve education. But they are taking a knee to protest the greatest nation in the world and the song that represent it. It is not an ode to the glory of the state or the leaders. But to the people and their struggle for freedom . The struggle that was almost lost many times. Yet we fought through it. Land of the free and home of the brave! Like the brave Civil Rights leaders. Yet our greatest athletes and some of the most intelligent Americas are taking a knee and doing the unwise things. Fighting their liberty. Embracing their captivity.
