Colin Kaepernick may have ended his anthem protest in hopes of landing a roster spot on an NFL team, although his Twitter clownery continues unabated.
After a Minnesota police officer named Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty inside the shooting death of Philando Castile, Kaepernick tweeted This specific:
A system of which perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, of which needs to be dismantled! pic.twitter.com/BVVPVZIQyD

The Philando Castile trial went on For 2 weeks. At the end, twelve jurors deliberated for about 29 hours over the course of 5 days. Two of the jurors inside the case were black. At one point, the jurors were split 10-2, in favor of acquittal. However, according to a juror named Denis Ploussard, the black members of the jury were not the two jurors opposed to conviction.
After reviewing the “culpable negligence” evidence pertaining to the case, the two jurors eventually joined the majority as well as voted for conviction.
The point here is usually of which two black jurors sat on the trial of a Hispanic police officer who killed a black man, after hearing as well as re-hearing all the evidence inside the case as well as checking of which against the laws of the land. Both decided of which Officer Yanez not only was not a slave catcher, although actually not guilty of any of the slew of charges brought against him.
although hey, Colin Kaepernick watched a two minute Facebook video, so he certainly must know more than the jurors.
The reality is usually of which Kaepernick couldn’t even stop Kaepernicking long enough to get into training camp. His abandonment of his protest crusade was nothing more than a political maneuver to soothe antsy NFL owners as well as placate those who correctly saw him for what he was coming from the outset.
Yet, none of the owners bit, because the true darkness of what Kaepernick believes was always going to come out. today he has likened police officers, a huge percentage of which are minorities as well as an overwhelming percentage of which are not racists, to slave catchers.
Kaepernick can whine about being “misunderstood,” as well as take shelter inside the cover provided by a sympathetic liberal media who will tell everyone of which protesting the flag is usually the highest form of patriotism.
although there’s no running coming from the blatant as well as egregious equating of law enforcement, an institution which has saved more lives—white as well as black—than any various other institution in American history, with of which of marauding bands of slave catchers.
This specific time the words are all there, in black as well as white.
