Tonight is the first game of the NFL Season and former San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is still not on a team! Is it really because he took a knee this past season and is standing up for his people? In my opinion, there’s more to it than that. Kaepernick hasn’t just taken a stand for his people on the field but he’s also been a huge help off the field.
Pictured are four separate instances where Kaepernick has found ways to help his people. That’s great right? You would think the #NFL would love this right? WRONG! My mother always told me that the most intimidating and threatening person in this country is an educated black man and this educated black man is a HUGE threat, not just because he’s using his platform as a means to shed light on the subject by taking knees during the playing of the national anthem but it’s also because he’s taken the same money that the NFL is paying him and is uplifting the black community thus creating more “threats” to this country.
No NFL player in the past year has done as much for the black community as Colin Kaepernick. In the majority of these communities, the children look at the NFL as their only ticket out of the “hood” and Kaepernick, whether he knows it or not, is showing them that they can make it without playing professional football. The more we uplift the community, the more educated we become, the more educated we become, the less the NFL will be needed. The last few years the NFL ratings have been at an all-time low and this year it’s looking like it’s going to drop again.
The NFL can’t lose it’s product because they also lose money. The product is the players and with blacks making up 70% of the league, they can’t afford to lose any potential athletes to the world of academia. God forbid these children become doctors, lawyers, professors or accountants. Oh no, that would slowly kill their brand and they can’t have that. They have to keep these poor kids dreaming of playing in the NFL and “making it out” so they can buy their parents a new home or mama a new car.
How do you kill a community? Take all the positive away. Eliminate all the people who can help. Block the one player that noticeably takes their money and donates it to charities, purchases new custom suits for ex-cons so that they can secure jobs in order to provide for themselves and their families or anything else he could do to uplift black people.
I believe the NFL secretly doesn’t want this to happen and if it takes keeping Colin Kaepernick out of the league to prevent the black community from benefitting from this, then that’s what they will do and they’re doing it. If Kaepernick was building rib spots, strip clubs and pawn shops, then there wouldn’t be a problem but since he’s doing something positive, he will be sitting at home just like everyone else and not on any NFL team’s football field. That’s why I’m boycotting the NFL #BoycottTheNFL #StandWithKaep
