    Fuck this guy. Claiming to be all worried about the black experience in America when he's an adopted kid raised in suburban Milwaukee and Sacramento by White parents, Webster-style.

    The issue here is that he's an attention whore who sucks balls at his job, and nobody pays attention to him anymore.

    Fuck him.

    Colin Kaepernick is speaking out after the 49ers quarterback refused to stand for the U.S. national anthem before last night’s preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, telling the NFL that “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

    I can't stand people who lack patriotism!!!

    Colin needs to get down on his knees and blow that flag while tickling its balls, cuz he is sooooooo lucky he was born here where he's been able to prosper to the degree he has.

    Idiot!!!

    Maybe he should stand halfway up.

    Kaepernick was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Heidi Russo, a 19-year-old woman who was single and destitute at the time. His birth father, an African American, was out of the picture before he was born. Russo placed her son for adoption with Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, a white couple who had two children—son Kyle and daughter Devon—and were looking for a boy after having lost two other sons to heart defects

    Is it not patriotic to use the rights you were born with? Freedom of speech and freedom of protest?

    Seems to be unpatriotic to want to bag on him for using his god given rights.

    This is the story ESPN has been dying for. Can't wait to see all the SJW commentators like Jamele Hill and JA Adande praise Colin for his brave choice. This guy is a mental midget and an ungrateful piece of shit. Hope Chip cuts him.

    Recently surpassing South Africa, Nigeria is Africa’s richest country. Contrary to popular belief, agriculture only makes up less than a third of the $1.058 Trillion GDP in Nigeria. The oil industry is what makes Nigeria thrive. The country provides about 10 percent of the oil imports for the U.S.

    With a population of 173.6 million, that's a per capita gdp of about $5700/year.

    US per capita GDP $53,000

    African American per capita GDP $33,000.

    I can understand him not standing for the National Anthem.
    He's so oppressed.

    We make fun of the North Koreans for goose-stepping while praising their "dear leader" during military parades. The national anthem before every sporting event is the same thing--a form of propaganda.

    We as Americans are free to choose how we react to the world around us (within our constitutual rights of course). I for one applaud anyone that has the courage to challenge the status quo.

    I think it's just disingenuous and self serving. If he gave a fuck about solving the issue he "cares" so much about, he'd get out of his mansion in the South Bay on his day off, drive up to the Bayview neighborhood in San Francisco, and help facilitate dialogue and cooperation between residents and the SFPD.

    Instead, he's playing politics. He sucks, he knows he's about to get whacked on cut-down day this Tuesday, so he pulls a stunt designed to put the San Francisco* 49ers in a shitty position politically within the community when it comes to cutting his worthless ass and $12M salary.

    He never, ever gave a fuck about anyone except himself. This isn't a protest. If it was, why was Friday the first time he's "stood up" for others?


    *San Jose 49ers, really. They play nowhere near SF.

    In a couple of years, this guy will become a cautionary tale for career implosion.

    North Koreans get executed for not removing their hat and saluting the flag. There's a difference.
