    Colin Kaepernick offers harsh assessment of Clinton, Trump after debate
    [​IMG]
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers backupquarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has become a key figure in a growing protest against racial inequality, had a harsh assessment of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump a day after the first presidential debate.

    “To me, it was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates,” Kaepernick said Tuesday. “Both are proven liars and it almost seems like they’re trying to debate who’s less racist. And at this point, talking with one of my friends, it was, you have to pick the lesser of two evils, but in the end, it’s still evil.”

    Kaepernick also responded to a statement Trump made during an August radio interview in which he said Kaepernick’s anthem protest wasn’t “a good thing” and that the athlete might want to find a country that works better for him.

    Kaepernick said it was “a very ignorant statement, that if you don’t agree with what’s going on here and that if you want justice and liberty and freedom for all that you should leave the country.”

    The quarterback has previously said he will continue to kneel during the anthem.

    “When there’s significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it’s supposed to represent, this country is representing people the way that it’s supposed to, I’ll stand,” he said.

    He has a lot of time to think about that when he's riding the bench.

    I was hoping the article was going to end with the line "he then pulled a large pistol out of his bag, stuck it in his mouth and pulled the trigger"

    Maybe kap should debate the best way to get the bastard child rate in the black community below 70%, or maybe how to handle 13% of the population committing 50% of murders while taking 50% of all welfare.

    And things of that nature, you know motha fuckas.

    I can't imagine a less offensive assessment of the situation.

    He's gotta think Trump is less racist right? I mean if his concern is systemic racism in inner cities, well the Democrats have been in charge for 60, 70, 80 years in most places, democrats are the system in systemic.

    Media sure left out what he said about Clinton and her emails on his first go around, not a peep.

    It's actually more like 7% of the population committing 50% of the murders, considering the vast majority of perps are male.

    And I don't give the slightest fuck what a guy with a phony business degree from Reno has to say about the debate.

    If Police around the country stopped using lethal force tomorrow, the impact on the total amount of murders of Black men would be practically nonexistent.

    White liberals have black people convinced that despite being the people who call the shots in their communities, the failures have nothing to do with their decision making.

    It's really quite amazing. I admire its twistedness. Implement policy, watch as it fails everyone the policy is supposedly intended for and then successfully convince those people that the people not making the policy are to blame. You know, cause the people not making the policies are racist and stuff.

    It's an incredible con.

    I'm a shitty football player so I'm gonna protest, grow my half white afro out and just let words come out of my mouth like the two loons running for prez. Must stay popular and in the media, don't want a real job.
