Here is a picture of colin kaepernik at a press conference, after sitting out the National Anthem this weekend. Please note his choice of attire:
For those of you not familiar with the shirt, it is a celebration of….
….fidel castro. The murdering butcher – and RACIST – who, with his brother, has run communist Cuba for the past 56 years.
(Yes, he is also wearing a Malcolm X hat.)
I wonder if kaepernik understands that a one-party political system with 100% state controlled news, that jams transmission signals so that its people can’t hear anything but that news, just might be practicing oppression.
And I wonder if he has any idea how many Black people there are in Cuba (over 10% fully Black, another 20 – 25% mixed Black)…and how few of them have ever gotten anywhere near power under the castro brothers.
In fairness, I suppose that, since Cuba is a desperately poor country, and virtually no one of any color has much, kaepernik could rationalize that as a form of equality.
But if kaepernik did, he would have to exclude his hero fidel, whose estimated net worth is $900 million dollars. The Cuban people have next to nothing, but castro is a near billionaire off their backs. If that doesn’t count as oppression to kaepernik, he MUST be the dumbest man in the NFL.
On the other hand, maybe now, having now been advised of this, kaepernik would like to pledge a little of his $114 million dollar contract to the good works fidel and raul castro are offering to their people. (It won’t be that painful, colin, because, since there is almost nothing in the way of such good works, there won’t be much to contribute to.)
Note to the Cuban people: don’t count on it.
Or maybe kaepernik could use some of his fortune to take a few courses in third grade logic and common sense.
That would be money very well spent.
