  • Colin Kaepernick denounces 4th of July

    It is this attitude that will always separate us. Kaepernick declares the 4th of July as a celebration of white supremacy.

    Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick denounced the July 4th holiday as a "celebration of white supremacy" on Saturday.

    What's his reason for stating that?
    "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
    - Benjamin Franklin

    The new right wing: hate Muslims, preaches tolerance for Nazis.

        I guess he's looking at it from a historical standpoint, in that regard the US was built on white supremacy and mass violence. So if he doesn't want to celebrate our history, that's his right.

          It is an inflammatory statement intended to widen the chasm between Americans.

            It's a historically accurate statement.

              How was it built on white supremacy?

              Slavery wouldn't have ended in a bloody civil war if your claim was correct.

              "I don't discuss sitting presidents," Mattis tells NPR in an interview. "I believe that you owe a period of quiet."

                The Buffalo Soldiers where white supremacist, haven't you heard? So were the Spanish and the Mexicans

                  The whole thing could be a capitalist move by Kaepernick. He never does interviews... he hasn’t been spotted in the Black Lives Matter protests once . The man lacks leadership skills. Seems like he only does interviews for money, maybe he’s waiting to write a book.

                  happy Independence Day everyone!

                  Long live Woodrow Wilson.. a true leader Who gave women the right to vote ...whose memory will never be forgotten ...his greatness will never be forgotten even though Princeton had dishonored the man

                    American history didn't start with the civil war and white supremacy didn't end after it. White supremacy is also not just about blacks.

                            How many of you are aware that Free Blacks in Louisiana owned Slaves? How about who owned the largest plantation in Louisiana. (Clue, the Yankees burned it in the Red River Campaign?). Are these descendants going to get held to the same standards as White Slaveowners?
