SALUTE TO COLIN KAPERNICK

True blue Americans, White and Black (go figure) were screaming “show some respect” to Colin Kaepernick when he decided NOT to stand during the National Anthem last year.  I have to imagine “show some respect” is what Mamie Till-Mobley was screaming in 1955, after Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam were acquitted for the murder of her 14-year- old son (Emmett Till). Emmett Till was killed for “acting inappropriately” with a white woman (I wonder how many white women do inappropriate things to get Colin Kaepernick’s attention today). I have to imagine “show some respect” is what Sean Bell’s fiancé was screaming to Judge Arthur Cooperman who acquitted the 3 detectives who shot & killed her groom and his two friends a total of 50 times in 2006. The judge said the detectives made a “fair and just decision.” I have to imagine show respect is what the residents of Flint, Michigan are STILL screaming to Governor Snyder.

“Show some respect is what one of the oldest heritages/people groups in America has been screaming since 1619. Colin Kaepernick is brave and has my full support and love. Big shout out to Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf who was woke about this particular issue in 1996.
