Siding with Kaepernick, 49ers pledge $1 million to fight racial injustice | The Sacramento Bee


That commitment follows Kaepernick’s vow to donate the first $1 million of his 2016 salary, as well as all the money he earns from jersey sales this season, toward similar groups. Kaepernick’s jersey has become the NFL’s most popular after he took a public stance – punctuated by not standing during the national anthem – regarding what he calls oppression of people of color in this country.

Re: Lets Have OUR OWN PROTEST

AssylumGuido, I'm not even going as high as NFL Champion. It's the "little" things: Score a touchdown and break into an interpretive dance on the history of "Interpretive Dance". I'm waiting for a wide receiver to score and then break out a 3 act play on the history of his career!

Danno, I hear you! I was 15 when the Saints Training Facility opened two blocks from my house. Back in the day I could hear Bill Kilmer shouting out signals!

Re: Lets Have OUR OWN PROTEST

Lets do some simple math here, Exiled.

If you're against America.
That makes you "Anti-" American.
See? Easy.
I dont like the current government, either. Maybe these guys should vote
Republican, if they want change, seeing as we've been under a Dem president for 8 years. Most every American city has been under Dem. control for 40 years.
I love my country. not wild about the incumbents. Doesn't mean Im going to disrespect the Country, and the people who defend it.

The fact that I even have to use the words republican & democrat in a football forum proves that these WHINING players are hurting the NFL's product. Therefore, said business has a right to require them to stand respectfully. The Govt. cant require it. A business can. My business does.

F*** people who dont like America. They need to leave.

See yall in the Terrace tomorrow.
Love and Patriotism,
How bout some Guns & Jesus with that too?
America!

Exactly.... People, like you, who know me personally, know that mix makes me want to throw up.

Its really what pisses me off about these whining players. They bring politics into our national pastime, which normally would unite us.
Once you do something that makes Bob Costas put on his Smart Glasses, and start preaching to us, you've screwed our Game.
If you want to make millions of $$$, just play ball,, and STFU. If you want to do all that social justice crap, join the peace corps.

Boycott NFL Merchandise.
That will hit em.

It's a F'ed up world we're living in now. I just pray we all eventually come together.
I'm 30, and I feel at least 20 years older next to people just a few years younger than me, let alone alone the one's who are at least 10 years younger.

I instantly feel a lack of genuineness when I'm around them. They walk around with these crap eating grins plastered on their faces, they copy everything everyone does, and they love to talk about mindless things. I try to say something thoughtful and they look at me like I'm an old grandpa telling war stories. But if I make a fart joke, then I'm cool. There are very few people younger than me who I genuinely respect.

These athletes are just beacons of what young people are turning into.

Re: Lets Have OUR OWN PROTEST

First of all I would bet money that what Kaperdick did wasn't to make a statement as much as it was to garner attention. That being said him kneeling doesn't bother me. It's his right and as far as I know it's not an action that is not allowed in the business he is in.

Now about all the police officer shootings. I'm tired of the media trying to milk this race thing for all its worth. Thousands of good cops get blamed for the actions of just a few bad apples. And guess what, most not all I have read about have been justified. They all have one thing in common. The person shot by the officer was resisting or inciting.

I'm so sick of hearing how society keeps black people down. You really want to tell me a society that has affirmative action, free college education, a welfare system, exclusively black organizations and minority consideration when it comes to bank loans is a society that keeps black people down?? Seems to me that society has bent over backwards to help them achieve. If society is keeping them down its because it gives too much to one race. When you give too much you take away a people's drive and determination to succeed on their own.

Re: Lets Have OUR OWN PROTEST

Wow. There are a lot of ummm ... " Big Bad Patriots " here.

First I'd like to point out that Kaepernick is protesting the national anthem , not the flag. The difference couldn't be bigger.

Francis Scott Key wrote the song when captured by the British , he then proceeded to write a song about freedom while also condemning slaves in the third verse that's often not sung. What a hypocrite.

You wouldn't ask a Jewish man to sing a song that has proud roots to Nazi Germany , but this is somehow cool ?

And if you're really tired of hearing about black America being oppressed , just imagine how tired they are of being oppressed.
The statistics in the judicial system confirm there is a racial bias in America. There are literally so many statistics that support this argument , I highly question the intelligence of anyone who opposeses these numbers. These are well documented facts.

Not to mention , The Reagan administration has recently come out and admitted the war on drugs was a deliberate attempt to target black males. Google it if you are skeptical.

And I'm more than positive that these NFL players have expirienced some form of oppression due to the color of their skin early in in their lives. Money changes things , but not everything.

Lastly , quit telling people who have opinions that differ from your own to " Get out of your county ". The first amendment was put in place to encourage diplomacy and spur Intelligent diolgue so we can become " a more perfect union ".

Some of you " Proud American's " couldn't be more anti American in light of whats actually in the constitution.

I love America , We have some problems , they won't go away denying they exist.
