  • How the Emphasis On Race Is Dividing America

    Wherever we turn, race is the issue. Any problem that we face, race must be at the root of it. At least, that’s the way it feels in America these years. Any outcome that we do not like, any narrative that we reject, any person with whom we have a problem – all of it must be traced back to race. This is as dishonest as it is destructive, and if we really care about equality and justice, we had better reevaluate our strategy, and we had better do it quickly. I’m reminded of a humorous story my dad told...

    Co-host Max Kellerman suggested Tebow should highlight that Colin Kaepernick hasn't had a chance at a comeback ----------------- ESPN "First Take" host Stephen A. Smith took aim at former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Tim Tebow on Thursday, arguing that "white privilege" was a factor in his NFL comeback at age 33 after years out of the league. Tebow signed a one-year contract this week with the Jacksonville Jaguars after spending the last several years pursuing a professional baseball career in the New York Mets’ minor league system. During Thursday’s episode of "First Take," Smith said he "had a problem" with the...

    Jimmy Smith, one of the best players to ever play for the Jacksonville Jaguars, said Wednesday that when it comes down to Colin Kaepernick or Tim Tebow, the team needs the latter. Smith told TMZ Sports he feared someone like Kaepernick would divide the locker room. "We don't need Colin Kaepernick on our team," the former NFL great said. "We need a guy like Tim Tebow who's a hometown hero who has love for the city anyway," Smith added. Smith denied there were any racial connotations behind the Jaguars’ reported decision to work out Tebow and then potentially give him...

    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...

    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.

    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,...

    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...
