What The Media Did Not Report: Here Is The "Ignored" Part Of Kaepernick's Speech

Tyler Durden's picture

Colin Kaepernick has made headlines in recent days for his decision to sit during the National Anthem. According to the mainstream media, his reasoning is simple (because the only thing that is comprehendible to the majority of Americans is a soundbite) - police brutality and the oppression of people of color.

Implicit in that simple narrative is one thing unsaid - it's Trump's fault... and Hillary will fight the good fight to support black people.

However, if one took the time to actually read Kaepernick's full interview transcript, the narrative is very different, and not at all what the mainstream would like you to hear...

Colin Kaepernick (CK): People don’t realize what’s really going on in this country. There are a lot things that are going on that are unjust. People aren’t being held accountable for. And that’s something that needs to change. That’s something that this country stands for freedom, liberty and justice for all. And it’s not happening for all right now.

 

Media: Does the election year have anything to do with timing?

 

CK: It wasn’t a timing thing, it wasn’t something that was planned. But I think the two presidential candidates that we currently have also represent the issues that we have in this country right now.

 

Media: Do you want to expand on that?

 

CK: You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who’s openly racist. We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?

 

Media: It is a country that has elected a black president twice…

 

CK: It has elected a black president but there are also a lot of things that haven’t changed.

Clip:

So, according to the football player, it's not just Trump that is racist, but so is Hillary, and - shockingly - should be in prison, while Barack Obama has failed in eight years to make any difference. And yes, all of that was ignored by the mainstream.

Because if played on CNN, questions might emerge...

Colin Kaepernick now understands the meaning of the ancient Japanese saying:

"The nail that stands up, gets hammered".

Kaepernick is just staging a pre-emptive publicity stunt.   When he gets passed over for starting quarterback he can the cry "That's ray cyst!" and he gets to be the victim.

"Kaepernick is just staging a pre-emptive publicity stunt."

Wrong. That took balls. What are you doing?

Bitching about race was juvenile leftist pandering. Bitching about a rigged, corrupt, totalitatian government is mature libertarian discussion. I disagree that Trump is racist but he is waking up like anyone else that just took the red pill.

I was thinking the exact same thing.  There was A LOT of Murica going on in that thread.

Tell me about it. But what really pissed me off is that people were also disgusted with him speaking up (sitting down) and the message isntead of just being pissed off by the message, fucking censorship by the statist gringo hypocrites as always, fuck all hypocrites!!!

 

Criticise the message the messanger but not the right peopple have to voice or sit down to deliver a message. PC people also do that.

"You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators..."

Never thought I'd agree with the hildabeast on ANYTHING (and I doubt she actually said this) but I guess even a stopped clock...

Maybe if the blacks didn't go full retard in embracing thug culture, they could turn back into normal human beings?

PirateOfBaltimore's picture

All you have to do is walk around Baltimore or watch an episode of First 48 to know that she is right (and I never thought I'd say it either).  How many kids do I need to see have absolutely no remorse about killing someone?  Some of them do have remorse, and those people are not who she is talking about.

 

Just like Trump's words are manipulated about everything, she never said "All black teens or kids are super predators." but to pretend none exist (which is what everyone who takes offense to that is doing) is to absolutely bury one's head in the fucking sand.

"Trump is openly racist" ? Are you fucking kidding me?

That's why Jessie Jackson praised him numerous times for helping the black communities?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7U6Pp5iflTs

That's why black civil rights leaders like MLK's niece Dr Almeda King and Charles Evers etc have endorsed him? That's why Charles Rangle and other black leaders supported him throughout the 80's and 90's while he was actually trying to help them out?

Fuck the media. They have no idea what is coming.

"I have a dream that some day my iittle children will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." - MLK

WE JUDGE THEM NOT BY THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN, BUT BY THE CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER, and they don't like it.  They don't like it at all.  Cops lay their life on the line EVERY DAY, we judge them by their actions.  Soldiers put themselves on the line EVERY DAY, we judge them by their actions.  The culture of Ghetto-Rap-Blasting, Saggy-Pants, Gun-Toting, Drug-Dealing, Race-Baiting, Gang-Bangers are defended and even celebrated by the "cultural elite" who reject the country that made them rich?  WE JUDGE THEM NOT BY THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN, BUT BY THE CONTENT OF THEIR ACTIONS.

The call and curse of the President's spiritual advisor has become the call of the culturally bankrupt (in case you forgot, "Not God bless America, but God damn America! God Damn America!).

I CHOOSE TO VOTE FOR ANY MAN OR WOMAN WHO SAYS HELL NO, WE WON'T GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT OF HELL, WE CHOOSE TO CALL FOR GOD TO BLESS AMERICA AND FOR GOD TO MAKE AMERICA ONCE AGAIN A SHINING BEACON OF LIBERTY WHICH HONORS AND CELEBRATES FAITH, LOVE, HONOR and HARD WORK as VIRTUES to strive for.  How about we put metals on astronauts instead of atheletes and rappers?

They get upset if you point out that gangs are a big part oft he problem, they say not all blacks are in gangs. But the whole country should give up their guns because of the shootings that happen largely in gang areas. Gangs are also the reason so many blacks are in jail, very little to do with "institutional racism", but they don't want to talk about that either. I really hope Trump breaks up the lying, race baiting media monopolies, it is a big part of the increasing ignorance going on.

He should be called out for it. I really don't understand the people that comment on this site. Anytime people posts anti-islamist or anti-racial comments that are upvoted. Anytime someone posts anti-state anarchist comments they are downvoted. Now people are upvoting anti-state anarchist stuff? Make up your minds you fickle freaks!

Max Hunter's picture

I couldn't care less why he did it. I'm just glad he did.  Our nationalism will be our undoing, not to mention the millions we've killed since the big one (WWII). We owe it the rest of the world, and our children, to stand up like he did.  Even if you do it for different reasons, it's time to be that nail.

I don't know if picking the National Anthem as his protest venue was calculated or just happenstance but likely by any other venue would have gone unnoticed. Too bad the MSM is blunting his full message.

Spot on, O-B-Juan. Kap is unhappy at the niners. Also, he has just shown himself off to be a koolaid drinker by calling Trump racist. (It means he has not listened to the man himself, just parroted what he hears in his social media circles, which is predominately leftist.)

A quarterback in the NFL has to be quick-witted, and Kapernik has clearly shown he isn't. He must not have caught on that every year all kinds of quarterbacks graduate from college. He's not as valuable a commodity as he thinks.

toady's picture

Exactly. One last time in the spotlight, then it's 3rd string, or, heaven forbid, off to Tampa. 

You'd think he would take every opportunity to get off the bench....

DownWithYogaPants's picture

Trump has never said anything racist.  Not a word about race in a negative fashion.

Mexicans are of many races.  So are Muslims.

He keeps using this word.  I do not think it means what he thinks it does.

juangrande's picture

 So Mexican, of many races is the same as Muslim of many races. Race is a human construct/ bias. Like religion is a construct. Like nations are a construct. All of this is  relatively arbitrary name calling! You know, like elementary school...

froze25's picture

Race isn't a construct,  religion is, corporations are, boarders are, hell even time,  but race and male and female are not. 

DownWithYogaPants's picture

I yi yi!

Race is NOT a social construct.  Liberals don't really believe in science and that is one of their favorite tropes.  

Why are white people "white"??  Because the Africans after leaving Africa bred with Neanderthals giving them the benefits of the evolutionary lessons taught to their biology by the environment outside of Africa. To wit and example: foreplanning required to survive European winters.  This also bestowed upon them the genetics of cerebral development of both lines of humanoid. Thus caucasians 2 standard deviation of IQ advantage over subsaharan blacks.

This is not theory.  This is scientific fact from the DNA attained from Neanderthal bones.  You can watch a very interesting video on this topic here: 

http://www.amarketplaceofideas.com/video-when-neanderthals-and-modern-hu...

 

So in summary:  "NO.  RACE IS NOT A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT.  IT IS A GENETIC ONE"

Heavy's picture

"Why are white people "white"??":  Pretty sure first and second wave albinos from africa and india...

DownWithYogaPants's picture

No.  The genetics have been sequenced.  There is no sense in believing only albinos would wander out of Africa. 

Straight hair?  We got that from Neanderthals.

Larger brain size:  Neanderthals had BIGGER brains.  

For the same reason people with any sense get out of south Chicago.  Bar rump bump! Make sure to come to my other shows.  I'll be here all week folks!

Heavy's picture

I'm just saying, like it or not, there were some albinos fucking whatever resulted from all those neanderthals fucking the smaller apes, surprisingly recently as you'll find out. Never said only albinos wandered out of africa, but the albino gene did wander, out of both africa and india.

Sequencing and using the results to figure out dna groups and their movements actually indicates the opposite of what you are saying... (Look at haplogroup R)

Here's two articles:

Link1

Link2

Modern indian albinos looks like people from the caucasus mountains, take a look and then try to unsee truth.

Here's wikipedia on the origins of caucasians.

Wikipedia also says "Scotland takes its name from Scota, who in Irish mythology, Scottish mythology, and pseudohistory, is the name given to two different mythological daughters of two different Egyptian Pharaohs to whom the Gaels traced their ancestry, allegedly explaining the name Scoti, applied by the Romans to Irish raiders, and later to the Irish invaders of Argyll and Caledonia which became known as Scotland"

PS: Maybe the Scottish (Gaels) are an Egyptian breeding experiment?  That'd be wild.

PPS, just for fun: Also I'm pretty sure this is the plot synopsis for Game of Thrones:  REALLY White (really evil) people from the north show up in force after 10,000 years and swarm the world unhinging order and destroying all else but the undead. 

Hank Paulson the white walker...yellen the.......meh...George Bush the skin walker, there I'm done now

Whooa now I find that to be highly triggering! Math & Science are rayciss--everyone knows dat!

Serously, we have to pretend that there are no measurable differences between the races, because thats what fits the Globalist NWO agenda, and damn  your lying eyes if you disagree. I woke up a few years ago, and it was overwhelming for a while. My real education began at that moment. There are many categories of 'thought crime' that were instilled in us at a very young age, and continuously reinforced through years of higher 'education'. The controllers really don't want people thinking their own thoughts about a wide variety of subjects: Wars of the 20th century, European History, Archeaology, Race, how our monetary system really works... thats just for starters. A lot more people are thinking for themselves as the NWO Agenda becomes more overt. Is that a good thing that they are rushing and pushing this so hard? Are they running scared? Or are we truly fucked and they know it, so they care less about secrecy? The next few years will be intersting to live through, Fourth Turnings always are

Paul Kersey's picture

"NO. RACE IS NOT A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT. IT IS A GENETIC ONE"

There is much evidence to the contrary. For instance:

"For more than a century, natural and social scientists have been arguing about whether race is a useful classificatory tool in the biological sciences — can it elucidate the relationship between humans and their evolutionary history, between humans and their health. In the wake of the U.S. Human Genome Project, the answer seemed to be a pretty resounding “no.”

In 2004, for example, Francis Collins, then head of the National Human Genome Research Institute and now director of the National Institutes of Health, called race a “flawed” and “weak” concept and argued that science needed to move beyond race. Yet, as our paper highlights, the use of race persist in genetics, despite voices like Collins, like Craig Venter — leaders in the field of genomics — who have called on the field to move beyond it.

We believe it is time to revisit this century-long debate and bring biologists, social scientists and scholars from the humanities together in a constructive way to find better ways to study the ever-important subject of human diversity.

The race concept should be removed from genetics research for the following reasons: Genetic methods do not support the classification of humans into discrete races, [and] racial assumptions are not good biological guideposts. Races are not genetically homogenous and lack clear-cut genetic boundaries. And because of this, using race as a proxy to make clinical predictions is about probability."

And, as for IQ, race does not explain the Flynne Effect, and epigenetics should be part of the behavioral conversation.

So you're saying being black doesn't predispose me to sickle cell anemia?

shovelhead's picture

German Shepards and Chihuahuas are the same Canis Familiaris subset of Canis Lupis so there are no differences other than the obviously diverse phenotypes.

Tell that one to a dog breeder and he'd laugh you out of the room.

It's a canine construct, bruh.

DownWithYogaPants's picture

Typical anti science liberal bullshit.  Does what you say fit with what you and I see on the ground? NO.

Typical engineering classes have mostly white or asian male.  Much less females and even less blacks.  That is because engineering is hard and full of math. 

If you ever lived in a black neighborhood you would laugh at yourself.  That is if you are not outright lying.  I have lived in such and reality is bitch.

 

Do you think epigenetics accounts for asian eye styles? More supple skin?  Differences in skin colors?   If you do I have to say you would not make a good scientist because you ignore your eyes and you are D-U-M-B.
