San Francisco 49ers star Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the playing of the National Anthem at a pre-season game a few days ago. Echoing the disinformation of #Blackliesmatter Kaepernick insisted "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color...There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
Yes, there are bodies lying in the streets but a black man has about the same chance of getting struck by lightning as he does being shot by the police. But Kaepernick and #Blackliesmatter are silent to the real killers, other black men.
Case in point, 9 year old Tyshawn Lee killed in Chicago last November. He's one of the many, MANY children killed in Chicago not by the cops but by criminals. Below Tyshawn is pictured to the right with his killers to the left.

What's Kaepernick doing about this? Not a damn thing! He does some charity work but it's to benefit a group that focuses on mostly white children.
Kaepernick says he speaks for those who don't have a voice. We haven't heard a word from him speaking on behalf of this woman in Chicago and her lonely vigil to end the killing of children:
Oh what a rotten country this must be to pay this Kaepernick idiot $114 MILLION to throw a ball around then have to listen to him spout such ignorant, racist nonsense!
UPDATE: Dems now insist things in black community are pretty good. At least until they try and scare them about racist cops! Ironically that now that Trump has pointed out the challenges of poverty, crime and poor schools in the black community Dems who used to bray about those same issues are now suggesting life is pretty good if you are black.
Forgive me if I am confused. Are blacks only oppressed when Republicans are in charge?
UPDATE: Kaepernick fined $10,000 for insulting another player using the "N" word! Was he oppressing him?
UPDATE: A Patriot doesn't sit during the National Anthem:
