Kaepernick On Threats: If It Happens, You’ve Proved My Point

JOSH DUBOW, AP Sports Writer

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Colin Kaepernick says he has received death threats through social media and other avenues since he began to protest during the national anthem last month.

Kaepernick said Tuesday he has not alerted team security about the threats and understood that could happen once he began his protest over racial oppression and police brutality in the United States.

He said: “To me, if something like that were going to happen, you’ve proved my point.”

Kaepernick also said he plans to start a website soon showing he is donating the $1 million he has pledged to organizations supporting his cause of racial equality. He will donate $100,000 a month for 10 months once he has vetted organizations to determine which deserve his donations.

    As bad as his play on the field is one of those threatening to end his life is probably his embarrassment.

    I don’t blame Kaepernick for being an idiot so much as I blame the media for pushing a false “cops are racist” narrative. Blacks are too dumb to realize that they are being played in a “get out the vote” movement. The Democrat Party created the KKK and petergrynch@yahoo.comyet blacks overwhelmingly support it.

    Keep them ignorant, angry, and convinced they are victims, even if they make $100,000 salaries.

    Until they educate themselves they will remain suckers for the Democrats to use and abuse as Hillary sees fit.

    Wander through Chicago wearing something expensive or put another gangs colors on in one gangs territory and everyone else’s point will be made. BLM is nothing more than a political tool to anger inner city blacks so they lose focus on the fact that liberal Dems have controlled their troubled neighborhoods for 60 years and still their problems exist. 500 black youth killed in Chicago so far this year and not a peep about it from BLM, just a quick news caption nightly with no outrage. If Colin Kaperstink wants to make a difference knock some sense into the street thugs that are making the cities war zones. Put some of your millions into starting a company or start job training. Do something to bring back productive employment into the inner cities. And the biggest thing you could do is convince the blacks in this country they have been duped by liberal politicians that they blindly follow. Liberal politicians have established 21st century slavery and no ones gives a dam. You can’t blame these problems on anyone else but liberal Democrats. LBJ who started all this stated, off the record of course, “I’ll have these n-words voting democrat for the next 200 years”. He wasn’t talking about freeing anyone, he was talking about re-enslaving blacks. After all he was a southern democrat that still was unhappy with the outcome of the civil war. MLB and Abe Lincoln would sure be disappointed where the black man’s plight ended up and who they followed into this sewer.

    I was a fan of Kaepernick from the beginning when he wasn’t black. He is the Rachel Dolezal of the NFL. As for all of the fools taking a knee during the National Anthem and the L.A. Rams (whom I am boycotting in Cali) and their BLM shirts….these uneducated, rich, pampered clowns are utterly ridiculous. Seriously, what black player in the NFL has struggled? Yet we hear the news about them beating up wives and girlfriends, bringing guns to nightclubs, having babies out of wedlock and avoiding child support….what great role ms.
