      That is a capitalist move. Business leaders and sports team owners may feel pressured pressured by the media and looters threatening destruction of their stores. So they don’t have a choice but to endorse groups like Black Lives Matter.

      How your average citizen feels could be a different story. Because in every city a fraction of the people are out there on the streets looting or protesting.

      For all we know ...under 10% of all black Americans agree with Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter.

      The founder of black entertainment television said that when blacks see whites kneeling or holding signs of BLM... that black folks laugh their butts off.

        Clever.

        He wants to make his home country a better place and his financial security shouldn't preclude him from voicing any displeasure he may have.

          I just listed appr. 90 years from 1776 of slavery for about 90% of all blacks in the USA, followed by appr. 100 years of segregation.

          British slavery before, American slavery and segregation after.

          So once again:
          What exactly good did the independence revolution bring about for the blacks? What should they be celebrating?

          Doesn't sound like an unfair question to me.

          I'd like a decent answer, not some deflection or rant.
          you assume, incorrectly, that all blacks in colonial America was a slave. Bogus history. Anti slave laws had been passed in northern colonies, in New York, Albany, black had had the right to own property and attend school and own businesses as early as 1760,. In New Amsterdam (pre British New York) black slaves since 1660 had been allowed to buy their freedom and had always been allowed to worship anywhere they desired. By the way, the whites in New Amsterdam were mostly indentured to the Manor owners.
          I would suggest you study the opening of the Ohio Valley and the fact that the evil white rulers including Washington supported the opening of that vast territory which included Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan under the condition that those areas be free of slavery.
          During Thomas Jefferson tenure as president he tried to rescind the anti slavery rule and lost that proposal.
          It would also come as a surprise to you that freed slaves also owned slaves. One of the largest plantations in Louisiana was owned by a freed slave who owned more than a 1,000 slaves himself.

            86% of blacks support BLM. I'm actually surprised it's not higher.

              That’s one poll.. That could be influenced by foreign agents. Foreign agents were accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential election and Interfering in social media. So I don’t buy that number

                How much money did Colin take from that shoe company that used to have slave labor make its shoes?
                Weird that he could forgive Nike for being involved with slavery during his lifetime, but can’t forgive the US for something that it ended 150 years ago.
                I guess the $25 million from Nike went a long way towards helping him forgive. Maybe if the US paid Colin $25 million he would find it in his heart to support the 4th of July.
                Now what were you saying about valuing money over life?

                  Urban Hermit, The Free Black in Louisiana owned THE Biggest Plantation in Louisiana. It was on the Red River near Natchitoches. Bank's army burned it to the ground.

                      The man lacks a lot of things. When he first came on the scene for NFL drafts, if I recall correctly Kapernick was not a first or even a second choice for QB. He was actually rated somewhat mediocre in his QB abilities and rated 3rd tier or worse. I guess as a result he took it so personally he decided he'd do whatever he could to flip the national debate on it's proverbial head and invoke racism to get what he wants.

                      He's a lowbrow slug who will go towards whomever/whatever throws money at him...like NIKE for example.

                        ....and quite likely STILL uses slave labor to make their shoes and other NIKE products...NIKE has factories around the world.

                          I heard somewhere that his girlfriend tells what to do. He is not proving anything to me. There are a lot of failed NFL QB's out there that are not whining.

                          I had a student once in my last job that had a White Mom. One day a very dark skinned guy called him a "white boy" and I started to write him up but the guy talked me out of it. Ran into the guy several years later at a Casino. He told me he had never been so scared at that minority high school before. I hope he has done well.

                                Nor should anyone feel their life doesn't matter.
