Colin Kaepernick, Rosa Parks, Muhammad Ali and Curt Flood


by Paradise

Colin Kaepernick just became an instant national hero in the Black community, risking his career like Muhammad Ali, taking a stand or a seat like Rosa Parks, and shocking the sports world by doing what the vast majority of modern day athletes wouldn’t dare even think about doing and jeopardize their million dollar contracts by speak out against injustice.

Curt Flood from Oakland set all American athletes free by going to court and winning a lawsuit that enabled them to negotiate their services to the highest bidder instead of being forced to remain on the same (plantation) team their entire careers and being paid whatever bones the (sports world’s) billionaire slave owners decided to toss them. In return for jump starting the modern era of big-money sports, Curt Flood was blackballed or, we should say, whiteballed from the league, and buried deep into the unmentionable shadows of sports history.

But Curt, like Colin, came from Panther Country, the Greater Oakland San Francisco Bay Area, where such free radicals and statements are made, where Beyonce came back to Black, where Congresswoman Barbara Lee made her lone wolf vote not to give the president carte blanche to bomb wherever he chose after 911, and where Ron Dellums and Keith Carson spearheaded the anti-apartheid movement. So if you didn’t know, now you know! This is how we roll!

So WE GOT YOUR BACK, CAP! If the so-called progressive San Francisco 49ers fire Colin Kaepernick for choosing not to stand during the national anthem because America is acting like Black lives don’t matter (still, after all these centuries!), the 49ers are finished in Black America! for all time! Ticket and merchandising sales will plummet! And Black ballplayers will begin to formalize their own professional football, basketball and baseball leagues again, like back in the days before INTEGRATION!

  2. Jackie Robinson spoke out against racial discrimination in our country after he retired from major league baseball. He couldn't protest like the other athletes because he had to break the sports barrier for them.

  3. Kaepernick is a beacon for justice like Ali and others. His protest puts law enforcement abuse on stage. While most police officers are good people, there are transgressions that need to be confronted. We recall the senseless killing of John Crawford, who was holding a toy gun at Walmart. The Beavercreek (Ohio) police shot Crawford with no warning or questions asked. When Crawford went down, he was still alive, lying helpless on the floor. At that point, Crawford’s life maybe could have been saved. Instead police finished Crawford off. A cold execution. People who approve of this type of blatant misconduct, then stand for the national anthem, are phony patriots.

  4. I love all of the jingoistic fire breathing racist bashing mister Kaeprnick for exercising his first amendment rights, if you don't voice ergregious lies verbatim out of slave owners mass murdering rapist mouthes Thomas Jefferson George Washington Andrew Jackson all are created equal except for the three fifth human African your unamerican! You tried and failed hateful America to stop the voice of Dr. Martin Luther King you will fail miserably again!

  5. racism is blatant, and they know exactly what they're doing. here is a white guy taking a knee at their trash ass anthem that degrades Black people, protesting abortion. it's overlooked simply because he has white rights. we could cripple the entire NFL by all taking a knee, but we have cowards in our ranks, a yellow streak runs down the backs of most of our athletes. they fail to see the bigger picture of the future, it supersedes their limited football careers. after all they went to school to play football, not to think like adults. when the racist threatens them this is when they should stand tall and defy the europeeon to his face.
    they don't, most run around like scared punks on steroids, afraid of repercussions, what if they had half the balls of a man like Martin, Garvey and Malcolm. instead they lay dormant like cowards on the plantation afraid to stand for anything! what the owners are practicing is the right to punish and rape his slave as he sees fit. a white guy tells a group of black teens to turn off the music, when they refused, he pulls out his gun and kills one. see history, the mentality of punishing the slave never changed. even if he makes millions, he's still a subservient commodity on the plantation. we need to wake up and smell reality, time has run out on coon-fused kneegrows on their knees.
    The the entire black NFL should walk out and leave the krakka with nothing, without black people they have no faccan NFL no faccan league is what NFL stands for. we need to unite, we need to unite and fight instead of laying down like bitches and punks. they only respect power- if we stopped playing, they have nothing, these players have a loaded gun and are not aiming and firing.
    this group is about critical minds at work-we're only interested in thinkers and movers. speak softly and carry a bigger brain. The power to change is within us. we need to use it to move forward.
