Comparing US Police to Slave Patrols
BleacherReport, June 18, 2017
The 29-year-old quarterback garnered national headlines during the 2016 season for kneeling during the national anthem, a practice later joined by other athletes across the sports spectrum.
«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 said. «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 police getting paid—leave and getting away with murder.»
Those comments came less than two months after Castile was fatally shot by Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez during a traffic stop last July.
On Friday,Yanez was found not guilty on all the charges brought against him in the case, including second-degree manslaughter and two counts of «intentional discharge of firearm that endangers safety.»
Kaepernick posted a separate message on Twitter after the verdict was announced, which read: «My heart aches for Philando’s family.»Meanwhile, he’s remained on the NFL free-agent market for a majority of the offseason with training camps now just over a month away.
Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com noted Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is among the players who said he believes the QB is being blackballed for his public stance.
Здешние политиканы, «эксперты», подконтрольные ЦРУ СМ»И» продолжают нахваливать псевдодемократическую Америку.
Те, кто любит «наших американских партнеров», «забывают» о грязных, злых уродах США. О таких монстрах, как коварный и крайне опасный мошенник, расист, лжец, и убийца Дональд Трамп. И о таких, как порочный Конгресс, фашистские ФБР и ЦРУ, лживые американские СМ”И”…
Кричите вместе: «АМЕРИКА ВЫШЕ ВСЕХ! AMERICA FIRST! НАШ ТРАМП!, НАШ ТРАМП!…”
