Al Jazeera reminded us today that Colin Kaepernick is far from the only athlete who took a stand on social injustice. The most recent is the National's pitcher Sean Doolittle, who refused to meet with Trump at the White House after his team's victory.
It's worth remembering that two of the championships that visited the White House in recent years were served fast food hamburgers (or was that hamberders?)
When just looking at this picture, its almost poetic genius. Trump is hosting an event to honor people, but he does it by insulting them, serving them junk fast food. Just look at the contrast in the room; people , all dressed up as if they are headed to the Kennedy Center Honors event, and a pile of crap in front of them, WHICH, they are all expected to eat.
Title: Trump serves shit, and the guests all eat it.
Kaepernick still has not been signed by a team, but he has finally reached grudging acceptance by the NFL.
One of the ads that will be playing during the Superbowl this coming weekend is one that at tackles the issue of police brutality.
Here's the website for the organization:
Although roughly 100 million people watched the game yesterday, Kaepernick was not one of them. Instread, he was in Harlem, serving food and clothes to the needy people.
Although I DID watch the whole game , I somehow managed to miss Sean Hannity's interview with Trump and his second ad, telling us that we were stronger and safer. Neither one of which was a big loss.
I missed the Hannity and Trump content thanks to my remote control.
A store owner in Alabama plans to stop selling 20 ounce bottles of Pepsi because they have the NFL logo on them. His reasoning is that the NFL ""allows players to bow down and disrespect the flag that I love".
He's entitled to his opinion, of course, but this is another example of political correctness gone to an extrema.
Interesting article about a new Kaepernick Jersey that sold out quickly.
