Re: Colin Kaepernick-discuss

Hearing on Sports Radio out here that a growing number of 49ers are quite less than pleased with this mess yet another racist (Kaepernick) has started.

It was said, as an example, that after their game (30 minutes after) Kaepernick was holding court in the locker room and has a few people gathered around. Several players walked by and one of them said as he passed, "Hey! You know there was a ****ing football game here today!"

Now I don't go 'round wishing bad things on folks, but I'd like to see Hillary embarrassed in public and finally have to admit she's full of ****, and I'd like to see Colin's NFL career keep on fading to gray. Hopefully a little faster.

Well I haven't read all 20 pages of this thread, but it seems to me all that the kneeling during anthem seems to be bringing attention to is the fact that they are kneeling during the anthem. Not a racially driven discussion in any way. I don't agree with it, I think it is disrespectful.

A better nation for what?

Every country is up and down on different issues. America has many great points on the other side you have huge health and education costs that others dont have. You also have many benefits and lower costs that others dont have

All swings in round a bouts for me. If you live in either the US/Canada or the larger European nations,possibly Japan you are doing far better than most

For freedom, liberty and human rights for all especially considering the diverse demographics we have.

Is their a country as racially diverse as we are that has a better human rights record that we do? It easy if you're a homogeneous nation, not so much if you have as many diverse cultures as we have, or the population that we have.

I'd be very interested to know which Nation you think is more accepting of diversity than America is.

Re: Colin Kaepernick-discuss

Maybe i got the wrong drift of what you were saying.

Im purely talking of places to live hence the focus on medical care and education. Obviously you have great hospitals and colleges,but im talking costs. If you couldn't afford medical insurance or were fully covered by work how much debt would you have occured had you had my illness last year. 7 months/5 hospitals/multiple ops/stomach drains/heavy drugs etc it would have crippled people from what i have read. Especially as its left me needing life long medication for diabetes and another op.


Of course for rights and acceptance you are at least as good as anyone in the world. But id say its the same here. Forget what that idiot on fox said about not being able to walk round some cities and muslim gangs beating people up for not living by islamic laws its pure BS. Of course there are dangerous areas were isnt there. But we have a big population(considering the size of the country) of Eastern Europeans,Afro Carribeans,Asians (mostly India/Pakistan) and have very few issues.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Yep. That's precisely what many people who support his "cause" keep missing. All you hear on TV is "look at how many people are talking about it. It must be working". These people are either really ignorant, or too cowardly to call him out and expose how useless this crap has been. I think it's a lot of both.

Because what they all fail to mention is that people aren't talking about how to change anything. They are all talking about how dumb and disrespectful it is. And the other side (black lives matter) just keeps saying the same things they've been saying since long before Colin decided to take his customary place on the bench, during the Anthem. None of those people are offering any ideas, and they are all ignoring the statistics that show there is far from racial bias in any sort homicidal category you want to look at.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

God Bless America. But, my impression of Colin and him not standing is a simple indication that he really doesn't stand for anything. Except Colin.
