    As a Chinese immigrant watching my first pro game, it was obvious to me that such pride and patriotism wasn't coerced by the state, but a genuine expression by free people.Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, recently decided the national anthem would not be played at Mavericks’ home games, citing his desire to listen to voices of “those who feel that the anthem doesn’t represent them.” But to me, a Chinese immigrant, Cuban’s decision did not feel inclusive, but ignorant of what the anthem does represent. I never went to a professional sports event when I was...

    We have the right to fight back!" football player tweeted amid destructive rioting. What a difference a year makes. Last year, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick tweeted praise for the ongoing violent riots that were gripping the country at the time. He stayed on Twitter and even got a $3 million donation from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. This week, President Trump was kicked off Twitter for good for allegedly inciting violence among his supporters before they stormed the U.S. Capitol. The contrast gained immediate attention, highlighted by the news site Not the Bee shortly after Trump was banned from Twitter...

    “Sidelined NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is getting his own ice cream flavor courtesy of Ben & Jerry's," wrote CNN this week. "The company said it created the flavor to celebrate 'Kaepernick's courageous work to confront systemic oppression and to stop police violence against Black and Brown people.'" In 2016, Kaepernick's claim to fame was when he said, "I’m going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. There is police brutality. People of color have been targeted by police…There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable.” While proclaiming the sentiments above, which earned him Ben...

    Ben & Jerry’s debuted their latest ice cream flavor combination this week and, much to the dismay of millions of patriotic Americans who love this country, it’s name is inspired by none other than former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Of course, Colin Kaepernick’s new Ben & Jerry’s flavor is vegan and social justice friendly! Colin Kaepernick Teams Up With Ben & Jerry’s Yahoo News reported that “Colin Kaepernick’s Change the Whirled” is a vegan, nondairy frozen dessert that is set to launch through Ben & Jerry’s in 2021. The flavor is described as a “caramel, sunflower butter base with fudge...

Kaepernick, 33, took to Twitter on Monday to remind the league and his fans that he is still working out, and wants a shot at resuming his NFL career despite refusing to participate in an NFL sponsored work out in 2019. Kaepernick tweeted, “1,363 days of being denied employment. Still putting in work with @E_Reid35. Still going hard 5 days a week. #StillReady #StopRunning” He added a video showcasing some of his...

    Original anthem protester Colin Kaepernick is demanding that Pennsylvania authorities release Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. Abu-Jamal, who is serving a life sentence at State Correctional Institution Mahanoy, in Frackville, Pennsylvania, has been a cause célèbre for leftists for decades. Now it appears that the convict has added the former San Francisco 49ers, second-string quarterback, to his list of supporters. Kaepernick discussed Abu-Jamal during a video conference on Monday, according to NewsBusters.

  • Sports World Gets ‘Equality’ All Wrong

    The fatal flaw in the idea that America is rife with racial inequality is a failure to distinguish between two kinds of equality: the equality of blacks as human beings, and the equality of their performance in the social and economic arenas.  The root of so many stubborn problems in America’s inner cities have less to do with skin color than with behavior.  But instead of getting to the root of the problem, academia, corporate-types, the media, Hollywood, and now professional sports have become a septic system that pipes the rotten narrative of victimhood all over the nation, forcing regular...

    Anthem protests began in 2016, when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat and later knelt during the anthem, followed by several other players for other teams doing the same thing. It was a significant factor in the 8% plunge in viewership for a league that had previously been seen nationwide as a great unifier. That ratings plunge continued the next year after the protests expanded in President Trump's first year in office. This time, the plunge was 9.7%. For years, the NFL was the glue that for generations gave a guy sitting in his game room in East Palestine,...

    The Federalist ^ | 09/17/2020 | By Emily Jashinsky
    Colin Kaepernick is right about one thing—the NFL’s new social justice messaging campaign is best described as “propaganda.” Kaepernick’s dissatisfaction with the league’s explicitly pro-Kaepernick efforts, however, should be a major lesson for other woke capitalists. Absolutely nothing short of dismantling the capitalist system will satisfy their detractors.Corporations can go to great lengths to mollify critics, but those critics will never be pleased because their worldview is ultimately rooted in radical anti-capitalism. Mark Cuban, for instance, should recognize that Kaepernick and the leaders of Black Lives Matter do not see him or Roger Goodell as allies, no matter how...
  • Kneeling to Political Correctness

    So, Colin Kaepernick is the current face of American professional sports. This is the guy widely panned four years ago for his protests during the playing of the National Anthem at National Football League games. Now he’s the bee’s knees. That’s the picture from a Washington Post poll that says a majority (56 percent) of Americans actually approve of athletes kneeling in protest when the Star-Spangled Banner is played. Only 42 percent of those polled say it’s “not appropriate.” Pollsters also say that a majority in America now find nothing missing at all when a wedding features two grooms and...

    Colin Kaepernick spoke out against the NFL on Sunday in the middle of the league’s slate of opening games to start the 2020 season. Kaepernick appeared to be angered by the NFL pushing its social justice initiatives while his former teammate Eric Reid remained a free agent to start the season. “While the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about Black Life, they are still actively blackballing Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) for fighting for the Black community. Eric set 2 franchise records last year, and is one of the best defensive players in the league,” Kaepernick wrote.

    Bubba Wallace is taking his fake noose and going home... Bubba Wallace is the Colin Kaepernick of NASCAR. He’s singlehandedly helped to unravel a brand that some people thought could never be taken down by politicizing the sport. Americans do not want activism mixed in with their sports. I don’t know how much clearer they can make it to the sports community. Just look at the abysmal NBA, MLB, and NASCAR ratings.

    Former San Francisco 49ers player Colin Kaepernick will remain a free agent for the fourth straight season after no team showed interest in signing the former quarterback-turned social justice warrior ahead of the 2020 season, slated to begin this weekend. The story: Kaepernick became a free agent following the 2016/17 season after his controversial decision to kneel for the national anthem to protest racial injustice and police brutality against black Americans. But as the Black Lives Matter movement spread across America following the death of George Floyd, professional sports organizations, including the NFL, have allowed players to kneel during the...

    Madden NFL 2021 is adding Colin Kaepernick, who remains an unsigned free agent after he started protesting police brutality as a San Francisco 49er in 2016 by kneeling during the national anthem, as a quarterback option in the latest version of the popular video game. “Colin Kaepernick is one of the top free agents in football and a starting-caliber quarterback. The team at EA SPORTS, along with millions of Madden NFL fans, want to see him back in our game,” the company said in a tweeted statement. “Knowing that our EA Sports experiences are platforms for players to create, we...

    Colin Kaepernick sent a note of appreciation to LeBron James amid the NBA players’ strike over the police shooting of Jacob Blake last weekend. James revealed the note on Instagram in the days after the players forced the NBA to postpone playoff games as they looked for ways to combat social injustice. Kaepernick, who started a movement in 2016 when he knelt during the national anthem, thanked James for helping to keep things moving. “Four years ago on August 14, 2016, I began protesting against systemic racism and social injustice. Truth is what I sought. Solidarity is what you showed...
