Winston Churchill once said, “The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.” Samuel Butler, the Victorian -era English writer, gave it to us like this, “The truest characters of ignorance are vanity and pride and arrogance.” Then Thomas Sowell, economist, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance.”
Well playas…Jim Harbaugh obviously hasn’t realized the extent of his own ignorance because of the response he gave reporters on his thoughts of Colin Kaepernick’s protest. This dun had the nerve to say out loud with his own mouth, “I acknowledge his right to do that. I don’t respect the motivation or the action.”
Then he tried to clean it up with a dull tweet that said, “I apologize for misspeaking my true sentiments. To clarify, I support Colin’s motivation. It’s his method of action that I take exception to.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! What blows my mind about all of the duns that call themselves Americans that believe wholeheartedly in the constitution is that they know nothin’. None of these duns have ever read or had it read to them. None of these cats understand what it really means to have a First Amendment right! So since none of these boyz hollerin’ and screamin’ at Kaepernick about why he’s dead wrong to sit durin’ the National Anthem. Let me take you to school real quick playa and that includes Jim Harbaugh too.
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the makin’ of ANY law respectin’ an establishment of religion, impedin’ the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringin’ on the freedom of the press, interferin’ with the right to peaceably assemble, or prohibitin’ the petitionin’ for a government redress of grievances. For all of you simple minded individuals that keep sayin’ that he’s disrespectin’ the flag, the soldiers and the United States. He’s doin’ exactly what the First Amendment gave him the right to do and what the flag, soldiers and the United States entitles him to do !!
It’s funny how boyz are so caught up in him sittin’ down on the National Anthem that NOBODY’s addressin’ what he actually sat down for. He said that he sat down because he didn’t want to show pride in a country that oppresses people of color. He went on to say, “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.” Now ole boy was talkin’ about all of these police shootings of unarmed black men and none of these cops are goin’ to jail.
But cats like Harbaugh have the nerve to say that he doesn’t respect the motivation or the action. If kids that looked like him were dyin’ at the hands of the police he wouldn’t feel the same way. That’s what blows my mind bruh!! People are upset because ole boy sat down but could care less as to why he sat down. If people cared about the “Why” Kaepernick wouldn’t have had a reason to sit in the first place.
We’ve got to get to a point in this country where when one group of people are sufferin’ then all of us are sufferin’. Not, “As long as it ain’t me or mine I don’t care.” When the vast majority of Americans start believin’ that those freedoms that our constitution so eloquently spoke of in the First Amendment belong to EVERYBODY then we’ll truly become a great nation. But as long as folks continue to believe that Kaepernick is wrong because he’s protestin’ something that is of no importance to them. We’re in trouble bruh.
And for all of the suckas that keep sayin’ that what he did was a distraction. Look up the word protest! It’s supposed to be a distraction playa. Otherwise, they wouldn’t call it a protest! Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
