Colin Kaepernick, Free Agent

Michael Smith opines on Facebook on poor pitiful Pearl, aka Colin Kaepernick:

Let us not forget the personal anguish experienced by professional activist Colin Kaepernick and the rampant institutional racial discrimination in America that caused it. The list includes:

1. He has a white birth mother and a black biological father, making him bi-racial, not black.

2. He was adopted by a white, middle class couple.

3. His white adoptive parents made it possible for him to go to college, where he starred in football4. He was drafted by the racist NFL.

5. He signed a $126 million contract that stipulates his pay goes down if his level of play goes down.

6. His level of play declined and he was benched, consequently, his salary went down.

7. He publicly protested the institutional racism demonstrated by items #1-6 by kneeling on the sidelines during the national anthem at NFL games.

8. He and his radical girlfriend made inflammatory statements about his "plight" and how his problems are white America's fault.

9. He becomes a free agent and continues his radicalism.

10. He goes to Ghana to "find his roots" even though his roots are in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and Turlock, California.

11. No NFL team wants to touch an average backup with an attitude issue who had one good year as a starter.

Such is the sad saga of racial discrimination of a bi-racial, millionaire athlete who, because of America, had the chance 99.9% of the rest of America never will and apparently blew it.

The struggle is real, ya'll.”

These are not my stats ( HT James Wass), but I did go on-line and check for accuracy. Right on the money.

"Colin Kaepernick was 36th pick in his draft, high up in the second round. White privileged Johnny Manziel was 22nd in the first round a couple years later.

Let's compare their careers to a 6th round shlub from 2000. Tom Brady put in the work and turned out the numbers. Nothing is rewarded like results."
