Say what you want about Kap here - plenty of condemnation to go around - but that fro is legendary.

"Be a leader and never ever follow" That's what my father, that's what he always told me. So with those words boldly spoken, he sent me down a long and hard road.

When he announces his engagement to Caitlyn Jenner, we will know Zelcorpion is right about the globalists.

“That sig BTW is a very asinine anti-family anti-parent quote. You live in a country where 40% of children grow up without a biological father, yet somehow “the greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of its parents”? Sorry but this is fruity Boomer nonsense.”

You know the difference between all those other athletes and Kaepernick? They were BLACK. I mean Holy fucking shit... this guy puts on an afro wig and now he can lead a movement?

This trans-racial shit has to stop. This Fucker is the Caitlin Jenner of race.

RE: GQ Picks Colin Kaepernick as Citizen of the Year
Fuck him. Not really because of what he said, but because of how and where he said it.

He was a quarterback with a Twitter account, and had the money and free time to be an activist for whatever cause he wanted. No, though, that wasn't enough - he had to annoy football fans by dragging his politics into the games and forcing them to watch. This especially annoys me, because sports was really the only place in entertainment left to run to.

I've long conceded that music and film are far more interesting when they're highly emotional and relevant...so politics is a natural thing to include in both of those mediums. (What I was annoyed by there wasn't politics in movies or music, but the conversation in both of those being monopolized by lefties only.) Sports, though, is just an athletic competition where none of that matters, right? Nope. If I want to escape for a while - just relax and watch some huge guys kill each other over a ball - I'm going to have to wade through the retarded musings of Colin Kaepernick to do it first, and he's going to laugh in my face as he gives me the finger.

The condescending tone him and his kneeling teammates have here is infuriating. He thinks that Americans are too addicted to their sportsball to stop watching.

As I’ve already said, people have been placing him on a pedestal since he first grew hair on his balls. Tell me how he’s been oppressed?

RE: GQ Picks Colin Kaepernick as Citizen of the Year
So, in the top right corner of the magazine is the words "Men of the Year - The New American Heroes". Seriously, GQ? What have the "men" really done that made them "The New American Heroes"? tard

As for Colin Kaepernick, this is what he used to look like before:

He was such a good player back then. Now? Thanks to his crazy wife who caused Colin's radical transformation and conversion to Islam, she clearly has him by the balls so Colin follows her instead of her following his lead.

Colin is a weak man being controlled and brainwashed by his wife. Sad!

When his biggest accomplishment is being in the cover printed magazine, a business that is dying, instead of making millions being a pro athlete, you know his priorities are wrong.

Agree. Unfortunately a lot of members here simply have "certain" views about the world and "attitudes" towards certain types of people that are.... not shared by people like you and me (and most people in the world).

First rule of business: don't piss off your customers.

Colin is an entertainer.

His entire career is based on entertaining people.

His customers are blue collar middle Americans.

He's doing something that isn't entertaining to his customers.

People are rightfully booing and walking away.

He's welcome to speak his mind. That's his right. It's also everyone else's right to disagree and walk away.

Unfortunately, his opinion isn't shared by his customers.

Moral of the story: know your audience.

I've seen at least ten responses in this thread that provide logical reasoning as to why he's not liked.

Because he flamboyantly did it at a time when he was supposed to be entertaining us, knowing full well that he was going to piss off a very large section of football fans.

This would be like me performing at a majority black jazz club, and stopping the show to shout that Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown deserved it. Some would be offended and just stand there, some wouldn't be offended, and a large enough percentage would want stomp me.

For me, it's the fact that the guy is an obvious phony. Back when he was on top, shredding defenses and going to the Super Bowl, you didn't see any of this. But then his career goes downhill, he gets benched, and all of a sudden he "finds enlightenment".

Some people like to claim he's cut from the same cloth as Muhammad Ali or Jim Brown- Sorry, he ain't.

It's like a hot chick that hits the wall, loses her power over men, and all of a sudden cares about "women's rights".

This one isn't fair. I don't think BLM took down the World Trade Center or blew up flight 800. They didn't bomb the USS Cole. Radical Islam did those things. Black lives matter doesn't cut off little girls noses. Radical Islam loves that shit.

Colin kaperneck is kneeling at a football game during the national anthem. He isn't shooting up a Tampa gay bar. Neither is black lives matter.

This one goes to far.

BLM is a little too cozy for comfort with The Nation of Islam, but that's just a black supremacist hate group that happens to be Islamic. They're not mainstream Muslims and a distinction needs to be made there.

To put the shoe on the other foot, imagine J.J. Watt had been taking a knee during the national anthem to bring attention to how less than 13% (black Americans) of the U.S. population commit 52% of homicides* and about 40% of violent crime.

My guess is if he did that, he would be fired, his career would be over and it would a struggle to be able to show his face anywhere ever again. But you could say he is just standing up for facts; Coppernick is standing up for his opinions.

Kappernick has joined the trend promoted by a large portion of the mainstream media that there are police (seemingly including black police officers) that deliberately kill people because they are black and for no other reason. To my knowledge there are no recent open and shut cases as such. Please correct me if I am wrong.

In terms of homicides (and presumably other violent crime) America has 4-5 times more than what you find in most European countries. The US also has 4-5 cities that are in the top 50 for homicides in the world and this occurs disproprtionaltey in black areas. This means the police can be in tense situations/environments and there is going to be collateral damage, people are going to die when it could have been avoided. The other alternative is to go European and go so far as to ban pepper spray and put people in jail for attacking burglars.

Then there will be some bad apples, people who use excessive force because they are bad people who enjoy hurting people. I am not expert, but this does appear to be a problem. Yet as far as I know there is no evidence of people being killed by police because they are black; though it could have happened.

The frustration with Kapernick, as I see it is two-fold:

1) Anti-Americanism, which has become rife in the MSM news, Hollywood and music. Sports seem to have a much more patriotic following and was until recently, free from politicisation, particularly political correctness and grievance politics

2) White people are becoming increasingly tired of day after day being told they are inherently bad and responsible for all the bad in the world as well as the double standards as to what they are allowed to say and is allowed to be said about them and what other races can say while not being acceptable to say anything bad about

Kaperneck is a charlatan, this is the issue. He started his protest with no coherent reason. Many speculated that it started in protest to SF 49ers Owner Mr York that was running the team (and Kaperneck and his career ) into the ground, other words came it was directed at coaching staff also. It then morphed into a Anti-crusaude that Kap could not define nor willfully become the leader for. What doomed Kaperneck and the rest of the NFL players is they never defined they outrage and never fumbled the actions towards a set of measurable action items. All those are hallmarks of a legitimate counter movement, lack those and all you are doing is engaging in a attention whoring excersise. It is no different then the feminists who edge that men are toxic but never articulate how this can be fixed in a unified manner. You get some feminists who think all men should be castrated, while others must want equal pay (which already exists) -- and you see how the public does not respect your movement if you can't find structure and leadership towards it because minus that you are just noise and not anything tangible. Nobody likes a noisy situation that is noisy because it ain't is, and not because it has to be.

This is the issue where you get a lot of privileged, well compensated, wealthy men who have the brain power of a pot of a boiled potatoes. Because what started with Kaperneck became Micheal Bennet (who for the sake of attention crested a police situation story that turns out was not true to his story) and then a majority of rosters all proceeding to disrespect symbols of a young nation that is held loosely together by said nationalistic symbols. These men, few came from much and it shows, because even if you don't come from a military background you should know some who do.

I'm Canadian of a similar background to these football guys, but I have friends in the military and I respect them for doing a service that I have the freedom not to partake in. I make sure I show respect to veterans when I see them, I donate a little money I can to the Leigons and I wear my poppy up here proudly. I'm am just aware that is important to respect the hustle of those men because it allows me the ability to be free and prospor.

Majority of people have similar views and it is the NFL users who are out of touch and could not read this from their position of high class and privilege. "Knowing your audience" is key as those players are well compensated entertainers and should not confuse this. This would be the same as a major theatre company coming out as anti-LGBT as we all know "Big Theatre" and all the major stage and Broadway groups are run by gays. That company would be crussfied and chocked off quickly. This is essentially what Kaperneck and the players have done with football and tossing shade at American symbols.

Your average NFL fan is a simple dude from Ohio that works with his hands. He sweats for a dollar just like his favorite players do but he does not get the 8-figures for his effort. This man cares deep for his country as it gives him the freedom to take his son to one Eagles game a year and he keeps that going as he remembers how his dad did that but he lost his dad to Vietnam and mad sure his son didn't follow that same path but is still deeply patriotic. That is the story of millions of men and it shows the out of touch nature of NFL players who proceeded to insult that Ohio man and the rest of the NFL fan base at large.

Folks also don't jive with the players as looks all phony and forced because....

Where were the game checks being donated?
Where was the players walking off?
Where was the users union being used as a central voice and center to lead action; where was the union taking a cut of checks to donate?

You notice these players didn't put a dime or money or a ounce of sweat towards what they claimed was the biggest injustice they faced (yet could not define). When it came down to money all stated in line like the subversent cattle they all are, groveling for that paycheck (St Louis Rams had actual action items when the Furgerson situation was at its peak, they even threatened to walk off the field and not play, whole, lockeroom was in board, they were out giving time and money to try and help -- curiously the NFL union did not fill this whole when the team moved to Los Angeles - one example of many).

The players crusade now has morphed into a tantrum for three fallen brother Kaperneck, in many cases has become the maryr for the players. Kaperneck isn't good for the football brand so even if be was talented enough to make an NFL roster (he really isnt. People over estimate how good he was and forget he was compete trash when he got fazed out of the league.), and when he did his aggressive girlfriend spoiled it for him on two occasions. So the players are mad that Kaperneck does not have a job. But again none of these players will truly do anything impactful as they don't want to end up unemployed like Kaperneck... Of course (where are the star athletes who are saying they will give up there roster spot for Kaperneck. The star player is immune to getting cut, of course - none will jeporize their own money, of course, for the greater good of the "movement"). But even Kaperneck with his millions made knows he can't do anything meaningful aside from throw a pigskin and is desperately trying to get back in the league so he can make millions again and get back doing being that suave dude who did rich-man pictorials in GQ. I'm on my phone but please somebody show the pics of Kaperneck being a suave 1%er flaunting his wealth and playing up his thug image all far cry from his humble background as a kid raised by white folks in Wisconsin or some shit.

Overall it's all a damn farce. I give kaperneck some slide as he is the only one paying for this, and is not esting his crow. Yet, as others mentioned his ability to be vocal on issues means that others have the freedom not to agree with him. Still yet to this day Kaperneck has never once articulated or defined what targeted issues he is attempting to fix and what means or methods could be a solution. Only thing I've seen is Kaperneck have his 'Motherland moments' where a genetically black, yet white American raised man is going back to Africa to find his roots. Nothing wrong with that but I hope he then starts to speak up on the injustices over there. Once he learns how people get treated over there he will soon realize that America, with its faults and issues is like the Ritz versus the freeway motel if you talk about personal freedom and personal vitality versus much of Africa.

The forum is filled with white power loving Nazi's right? I don't give a fuck if Colin K was white or fucking Asian...he is a drama queen who is a talking head for his girlfriend. He opted out of his contract early for whatever reason. He started this current shit show in the NFL. An because I don't like him I'm just a racist cracker huh? Don't come in here posting that passive agressive shit. If you got something to say fucking say it or keep your mouth shut.

I dont hate Colin but I do feel that what he did was violation of the public's trust. In a way I liken what he did to some of the sexual misconduct cases we hear about now. Imagine a poor congressional aid or assistant producer showing up to a congressman's or entertainer's room or apt under false pretenses only to get an unsolicited towel drop and subsequent eye full of a fat guy's dick.

Personally I think protesting the things we sincerely see as wrong with our country and/or society as the most patriotic duty. Wanting America to be better is what every patriotic American wants. (The definition of "better" is a completely different topic of discussion)

But force feeding one's beliefs on others under the guise of another reason to have their attention is uncool at best. If I tune into an NFL game I want to see some highly tuned highly paid physical freaks of nature do some extraordinary physical shit...not bait and switch me with their political stances.

He keeled without saying a word and without causing any delay to the game you tuned to watch. . . .that is a far cry from force feeding you his beliefs.

He knowingly co-opted the stage he was provided to platform for another purpose. That's duplicitous

As I said I dont think he's a bad guy. I dont think he expected the media to take this as far as it has...but he knew they were watching after the first time he did it. I also dont think he expected it to annihilate his career...which is a shame

RE: GQ Picks Colin Kaepernick as Citizen of the Year
We see this all too often in biracial people - they have an identity crisis and to prove themselves and they go off the deep end in one direction. Colin was the product of a white mother and black father (who deserted him) and adopted by a wealthy white family. He has never laid out a logical coherent issue or method of tackling it besides muh oppression. He has spouted numerous Marxist talking points like he just got out of a freshman sociology class, but clearly doesn't understand the underlying issues to any high degree.
