    I mean, he did donate a million dollars.


    That would be a very interesting study to see. There’s more white people effected by it, but a much higher percentage of black people. I’m not sure how somebody could argue black people aren’t treated worse by the police, so I’d have to look at that.

    It’s typically people who aren’t effected by discrimination, arguing there is none lol.

    If he showed up to the meeting the NFL and the players coalition invited him to a couple years ago about what the NFL should do in terms of helping local community relations with the police.
    Or maybe not taking money from Nike that makes billions off of sweatshop labor and didn’t take a stand against China either with the whole NBA controversy.
    Or maybe not selling out and taking the NFL’s settlement offer in his lawsuit? If he really wanted to expose the NFL for “blackballing” him then why not let their alleged dirty laundry be aired out in court?

    It’s because Colin’s cause is Colin. So to answer your question I think we are past the point where I would ever view this guy as anything other than a conman.

    I'm going to presume that every decent human being is against police brutality and abuse of power.

    Showing love for Fidel Castro is inexcusably stupid. There are people living in Florida now who relatives were tortured to death under his regime.

    Kaepernick has every right to be stupid. He has the right to say stupid things (in this country anyway, not so much in Castro's Cuba). However, his employers have the right not to put up with his stupidity.

    I agree that it's a percentage of incidents. Whether those incidents or circumstances warranted being categorized as "brutality" is another discussion that this forum has already had numerous times.

    Question. Just thinking out loud here.

    What's the difference between someone who isn't affected by discrimination and says there is none and another who isn't affected by discrimination and says there is? Aren't they both equally ignorant?

    Don't forget Jemele Hill. Dan LeBatard's been a political pest these days on BSPN* too.

    I think it’s willing to listen to the minorities that are being effected and not sticking to strong opinions that aren’t based on research or personal experience.

    Which is also the same issue when it comes to sexual assault which already was discussed for hundreds of pages here hah.

    It’d help his cause if they were move realistic about his abilities. People really think he’s a star, I swear these guys don’t watch football. I see people posting gifs from the Packers playoff game in 2012.

    If he were still that good, somebody would sign him. Problem is he’s not so amazing that somebody is willing to do it, he’d just be a solid starter/good backup QB most likely.

    He's had some doozies, even for this place.

    Sad that this is the way he chooses to spend his retirement.

    On the bright side, pretty clear that he's not MossLost which was the original suspicion.

    Cant help but wonder, if the Ravens couldn't stop the Ravens?

    Now with this open tryout thing, no team can legit complain when he ends up a Patriot.
    They will still whine, but I prefer that.
    *
    If say, Kaep play x Snaps per game
    Line up in backfield, and as QB
    close out a quarter here and there
    Dirty match?
    Tom safely watches from the bench
    till the 4Q

    Brady could play 5 more years
    *
    If Gueneviere doesn't like it
    Tom can find just find an extra GF
    or complete replacement GF
    as he decides.

    I am fairly certain he could find another GF

    5 More Years.

    While I give you credit for posting a link to the study in the end, you do realize it comes to the exact opposite conclusion of the point you were trying to make right?

    At the same time, the study found blacks and Hispanics were more than 50 percent more likely to experience physical interactions with police, including touching, pushing, handcuffing, drawing a weapon, and using a baton or pepper spray.

    Also I note that this conclusion is exactly what Kaepernick was trying to call attention to, regardless of how you feel about his other decisions, or the exact timing of his protest.
