Kaepernick's 'right' to sit down on the Anthem bruh! "The Backlash"

"I ain't doin' nothin' bruh!" 
George Washington once said, "If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." Tracy Morgan gave it to us like this, "We have freedom of speech, but you got to watch what you say." Then Tom Smothers put it where the goats could get it when he spit, "Freedom of expression and freedom of speech aren't really important unless they're heard. The freedom of hearing is as important as the freedom of speaking."
Well playas...Colin Kaepernick 's freedom of expression and speech on Friday night was very important because everybody heard them. Ole boy refused to stand for the National Anthem before the 49ers played the Green Bay Packers because of his views on how this country treats minorities.
 He told the press after the game, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
Let's keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! There are a lot of boyz fired up at ole Colin today because they feel like he's bein' disrespectful to the good ole US of A.  However, most of the duns that are upset with him probably don't understand what it feels like to be black in America. 
Now I personally don't think that his beef should be with the National Anthem because we're all American at this point. However, black folks were slaves durin' the War of 1812 when the flag in question was made by Francis Scott Key. So all of the brothers could really trip because we were in chains when boyz celebrated the victory.  

As a matter of fact, there are a lot of things that mainstream America takes for granted that don't really apply to African-Americans. Take the 4th of July for instance. We were slaves on July 4th, 1776. So that isn't our Independence Day! Our Independence day is June 19th, 1865 because that's the day recognized as the day that all of the slaves in Texas found out more than 2 and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was actually signed. It's called Juneteenth playboy! That's our Independence Day! 
But on some real talk, his beef should be with the local principalities and the judicial system that allows this foolishness to take place not with the flag.  But the fact that he put the Star Spangled Banner on blast durin' an NFL game got the attention that he was lookin' for. Now boyz are talkin' about it whether you think he was right or wrong. He brought attention to the injustice that most people in America try to act like doesn't exist.
As long as he knows that he's upset the powers that be and he's willin' to deal with the backlash I'm cool with him sittin'. It's not my bread, endorsements or roster spot bein' affected. That better be careful because he's barely holdin' on to a spot while you're playin'.  If he's cool with it then I'm cool with him bein' cool with it bruh. I can't tell that man that he's wrong if that's how he feels because he isn't lyin'! Stop me when I start lyin!

D Wade's family is dealin' with this hood foolishness too! "Fightin' Mad"

"This makes no sense bruh!" 
Robert Kennedy once said, “What has violence ever accomplish? What has it ever created? No martyr’s cause has ever been stilled by an assassin’s bullet. No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled or uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people.” Nelson Mandela gave it to us like this, “People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that’s how they’ll react. But if you say, ‘We want peace, do a lot of things that will contribute towards the progress of our society.” Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.” 

Well playas…these dun out here in these streets are out of control and Chi-town is leadin’ the way. Chicago is so out of control that ESPN’s The Undefeated held a panel discussion on violence this week at the South Side YMCA. Not twenty four hours after Dwyane Wade, who is a Chicago native now playin’ for the Bulls, spoke on the panel. His cousin Nykea Aldridge, 32, was shot in the head and killed while simply walkin’ down the street Friday 3:30pm.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! This woman was shot in broad daylight bruh mindin’ her own business!! What’s up with these cats out here? Ole girl had just moved into the neighborhood and was simply goin’ to register her kids for school. I’m highlightin’ this homicide because D. Wade was just on TV talkin’ about the gun violence in the Chi but folks are dyin’ daily out there and it’s got to stop. 

More than 2,600 people have been shot in Chicago so far this year and as of last Wednesday they’ve killed 463 people bruh!!! This has to stop. Our neighborhoods have turned into war zones and our children are at the largest risk than ever before. And what blows my mind is the dun standin’ on the outside lookin’ in screamin’ that black folks aren't outraged by this violence. 

Where are these fools from? I grew up in the middle of the ghetto and black folks have always been mad about these senseless killings. They don't march and protest at the same level durin' those circumstances because there isn't anyone to protest against? The dun killin' folks in the ghetto doesn't work for a local, state or federal agency that is held to a standard of excellence. They weren't sworn in to protect and serve!! The dun sellin' drugs in the hood doesn't work for the Drug Dealers Association of America funded by local and state tax dollars. The police are the only one's that took an oath to protect and serve. So the fool runnin’ down the street shootin’ at boyz makes us all furious but what can we do? 

EVERYBODY in the hood knows that Lil' Shotgun and Man-Man is sellin' all the drugs and killin' everybody. But if you live in that neighborhood or your mother still lives there you can't march and protest against them!! Why? Because you and/or yo momma will come up missin'! And anybody else that talks to the police! But if you've never been to the ghetto you wouldn't know that. EVERYBODY in the hood is sick and tired of the violence but they can't do a darn thing about it if they want to keep breathing because they don't have the money to move. Is that real enough for you playboy? 

And for all of the fools that want to show people that they're smart by throwin' numbers up that somebody else gave them. They'll tell you that 93 percent of all black homicides are committed by other blacks. But what they don't tell you is that 85 percent of all white homicides were committed by other whites. Why? Because people tend to get into arguments and fights with people that look like them because ethnicities typically run together. If the Italian cat gets into a fight at the bar with someone, the person he more likely than not is fightin' and beefin' with looks like him. Why? Because it's the Italian bar that all of the Italians in the neighborhood frequent. No different than the black cat beefin' with the dude down the street in the all black neighborhood that they both live in. 

It's ridiculous that a woman can get gunned down walkin’ her baby up the street. It doesn't matter that her cousin was D Wade. The streets don't ever care and nor do the bullets. We’re mad alright bruh! Fightin’ mad!! But the cat that killed her isn’t bein’ paid with tax dollars. So how do we protest without becomin’ victims ourselves? Stop me when I start lyin’!
