See why Colin Kaepernick compares modern day police to yester-years slave catchers. Read on…
The free agent quarterback took to Twitter comparing modern day police officers to slave catchers. it may not be the best thing if he’s trying to get back with a NFL team, but he’s NOT cowaring down on what he believes in.
Recently Colin called out the mainstream media stating:
“Mainstream media is not covering this!”
In the wake of a jury verdict Colin Kaepernick decided to disagree with an Hispanic police officer who shot Philandro Castile in Minnesota last summer. The Hispanic police officer was found not guilty of all charges by a jury.
“A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! My heart aches for Philando’s family.”
“Twelve people sat on this jury for two weeks, including one black woman and one black man. Presumably nearly 17% of that jury, a larger population of black people than exists in the country at large, were not racist against black people and presupposed to support police violence against minorities. Yet this jury, which spent two weeks reviewing all evidence instead of watching a video online for two minutes, unanimously agreed that the police officer in this case was not guilty on all charges.” – OutKickTheCoverage
Colin might want to stick to being an activist since he’s been making headway with his movement. Plus, this tweet is surely NOT going to go over well with the NFL. They already made him an example of NOT to start controversy while playing in the NFL. This tweet more than likely has helped them to decide he’s retired.
Colin Kaepernick’s NFL career may be officially over.
