There's been quite the stink being blown about by your usual suspects since 49ers QB Colin Kaepernik politely declined to stand for the national anthem the other day. That's because he can't find it within himself to honour an anthem that honours a nation that systemically oppresses black folks.
Frankly, I didn't even realize Kaepernik was a black dude... Kaepernik? I thought he was from one of those eastern European nations... well I suppose in its way that's almost the same thing.
Anyway, I gotta say it's refreshing to see a 20 million/year guy take a stand, or a sit in this case. He makes an important point. Anybody whose head is not completely up their ass understands that black folks, generally speaking, get the dirtiest end of the stick in America.
And if a 20 million a year superstar quarterback who can pass as Polish has a problem with America, imagine how they feel in Falluja.
