Colin Kaepernick seems to be begging for another position in the NFL, despite having likened the league to a slave auction.
“For The past 5 years, I’ve been working out and staying ready in case an opportunity to play presented itself. I’m really grateful to my trainer, who I’ve been throwing to all this time. But man, do I miss throwing to professional route runners. Who’s working?? I will pull up” Kaepernick said in a recent Tweet.
Why would Colin ever want to play football in the NFL, if he felt as though his coaches and team staff were doing nothing more than using him as a slave?
“What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic,” Kaepernick said. “Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod, and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary respect. No dignity left intact.”
Kaepernick seems to have left out the part where this process is carried out on every single prospective player including white draftees, all who have signed up for the job.
Former slaves likely did not continue to perform their chores every single day, hoping for an opportunity to return to their master one day.
This is where it becomes very obvious that Kaepernick’s activism is nothing more than an attention-grabbing joke.
“How dare @Kaepernick7 to compare the evil endured by so many of our ancestors to a bunch of millionaires who CHOSE to play the game,” wrote former NFL player Burgess Owens, who is now a Republican Representative in Utah, on Twitter.
Kaepernick not only chose to play in the NFL but also continues to seek playtime despite likening the league to a slave market.
