It’s true kaepernick, like you said in this article: “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder,” http://tinyurl.com/z4avxzq
But do not insult the land god gave us and the thousands of people who got their guts spilled out for our freedom.
Kaepernick Your Fighting a Godly cause.
you just chose the wrong place to martyr your cause.
Definition of martyr – http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/martyr – 2: a person who sacrifices something of great value and especially life itself for the sake of principle
In the article: Kaepernick explains why he sat during the national anthem.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Niners coach Chip Kelly told reporters in the article that Kaepernick’s decision not to stand during the national anthem is “his right as a citizen” and said “it’s not my right to tell him not to do something.”
NFL Niners coach chip kelly has a duty (who i question his patriotism to our country) and has the right and freedom to advise wisdom to the football player turned civil rights activist. Kaepernick must be reprimanded for insulting the united states americans who fought for our country.
Shaqs’ comments: “I would never do that.”
Kaepernick and other athletes that support him: NBA’s Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony and several WNBA players ought to put their money where there mouth is and start taking action in other ways to protect civil rights.
if they are serious, they should quit their day job and become civil rights activist. They ought to protest their very own bosses who are the super powers of world and are accountable for these horrific actions of inequity.Watch the movie CONCUSSION
Movie Trailer Concussion: NFL lied. NFL kills families.
Summary of movie CONCUSSION
While conducting an autopsy on former NFL football player Mike Webster (David Morse), forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith) discovers neurological deterioration that is similar to Alzheimer’s disease. Omalu names the disorder chronic traumatic encephalopathy and publishes his findings in a medical journal. As other athletes face the same diagnosis, the crusading doctor embarks on a mission to raise public awareness about the dangers of football-related head trauma (that’s another real life story).
a quote from the movie The NFL owns one day of the week. and NFL is more powerful than the church.
Kaepernick said he thought before he acted. sadly, Kaepernick thought wrong and chose the wrong advice/counsel and guidance for his disrespectful behavior at his place of work.
Perhaps he should’ve considered asking god for his guidance. The bible gives wisdom to those who go to him. (see below) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+2&version=ICB
Couldn’t kaepernick -with all his NFL dough and resources – fight for civil rights in another platform. fight for hard working people who are being dumbed down and oppressed by the world super powers who control this world.
Dear God the Father please instruct us your wisdom judgement discernment justice equity. In Jesus name. AmenAmenAmen
