The guy who used to play quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers is using social media to make a statement about the ridiculous amount of Islamophobia sweeping across redneck communities throughout America. Unfortunately, a lot of Colin Kaepernick’s followers are not happy that the athlete is making statements like these:

“Racism and discrimination isn’t OK we are all human beings! Things need to change!”

Or posting memes on Instagram like these:

These are facts! What are you really scared of?

A photo posted by colin kaepernick (@kaepernick7) on

Colin calling on Americans to be, well, American, isn’t sitting well with Americans. After posting the images, haters flooded his comment sections with idiotic messages that include these gems:

“He so dumb I swear! Like seriously even if it’s one terrorist out of a million refugees that is still one to many! Ducking idiot. Doing sh*tty at football this season now you gotta result to this? Lhh just seeking attention. You are one special kind of stupid,” one person wrote, who judging by the command of the English language, is likely more stupid than Colin.

“You joining isis or something f*ck posts like these,” another person questioned or stated, not sure.

“No Muslims aloud I agree,” a follower commented, proving just how doomed English teachers are.

Do you all agree with Colin using his platform to express himself, or do you think athletes should stick to sports?

    Muslims are not a race, Islam is not a race. You cannot be racist against a non-race. That’s what those who actually use proper grammar call, an oxymoron.

    ““No Muslims aloud I agree,” a follower commented, proving just how doomed English teachers.”

    By the way, I think “are” is supposed to be in there somewhere…;)

      ahhh you beat me to it!!!….. anyhow, I don’t think people are being racist for not wanting muslims or anyone for that matter from war torn areas flooding into the states.. its fear not racism driving this… fear of an area we have been taught to fear by our media and politics since the late 60s… fear of a religion that christianity has been at conflict with since the crusader era…. fear of an ideal that teaches islamic radicals to kill and destroy anything that does not follow their direct path and then praise these murderers as holy warriors… It really has nothing to do with religion or race…. Its all about what is going on in the world these days… an alarmingly high percentage of every “terrorist” act in the last 20 years has been done in the name of allah… so why wouldn’t people fear and try to distance themselves from that. Its a natural human instinct to self preserve. Its unfortunate that innocent refugees are getting caught up in this… but I doubt anyone screaming that “people not wanting them coming here are racist” would still hold that tone after a friend or family member is killed by someone who snuck over here under cloak of being a refugee… we cant even keep our own US born citizens from killing their neighbors in the name of allah.

          I see, So Im a pathetic coward because I can put myself in a position to try and understand why people feel the way they do and why it seems some people fear the idea so much? Or am I a coward because I can discern racism from fear and tried to make a point to seperate the two….. Orrrr are you a mouth breathing idiot who glanced over what I wrote without actually taking in what I was saying and decided to spew some garbage out of your mouth? Did I say anywhere that I was afraid or that I didnt think they should be here… I was speaking on why people seem to be acting this way…. I never once said ‘I” thought or felt anything about the situation….

      Oh thank you so much for solving the problems of the Universe by appointing yourself the Grammar Police. But no my Dear, an oxymoron is a figure of speech using contradictory terms such as “a deafening silence,” “bipartisan cooperation” or “business ethics.” Perhaps there is another thread where picking nits is more popular and the contributors will be too stupid to know that their instructor isn’t any smarter than they are.

        Oxymoron: a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction (e.g., faith unfaithful kept him falsely true ).

        I believe the word you were actually looking for, is called redundant.

        “Oh thank you so much for solving the problems of the Universe by appointing yourself the Grammar Police.”

        You are SO welcome. Please, go on and give me more odd pieces of advice that have absolutely nothing to do with the core of my post.

        When someone makes an obvious effort to act like they are speaking on behalf of everyone NO ONE is doing the same thing telling them they are not. I did not tell anyone in my post, including you, what to think, which is obvious because you clearly didn’t think before you replied.

    Muslim is not a RACE!? …In fact it is not an ethnicity either!?

    Why don’t people stop RACE BAITING or provoking this kind of hatred?
    I understand that some people of the Muslim FAITH believe in SHARIA law.
    Which in itself continues to add to the unnecessary hatred in our small world.

    HUMANS of EARTH need to learn how to accept a difference of OPINION.

    The United States of America used to be special this way.
    We fought this type of tyranny and desired better for all of mankind.
    The difficulties we face is entirely based on our in ability to see past faces.
    At our heart we are all equal by birth. Each one of us precious enough to be born.

    We need to be smart enough to continue our evolution and grow as a species.
    Lets open our hearts and minds to the real diversity; our differences.
    It would be extremely boring and perhaps lonely to be identical.

    Although the elite would prefer the ignorant GOYIM (cattle, sheeple, etc.) perish.
    Deny them the opportunity to succeed in their EVIL endeavors.
    Please educated yourself more about FAITH.
    GOD loves everyone for a reason!

        Isn’t it funny how ignorance and history both repeat themselves!

        Sadly the EUGENICS program employed by Third Reich was American by design and has become the bases for what we know as RACISM.

        “Many people are still shocked to hear that practices such as eugenic sterilization began in the United States long before they were taken up in totalitarian settings such as Nazi Germany.” by Paul A. Lombardo in A Century of Eugenics in America © 2011

        Unfortunately, the original intent to cleanse the human stock and improve the genetic quality of the population failed to eliminate the now endless supply of morons, imbeciles and idiots.

          I guess we have to take your word for that, since you offer no evidence to back it up. Don’t sweat it on my account though, I’m not a Christian and have been anti-religious for all of my adult life. I can say that while he never directly contradicted anything in the (admittedly barbaric) Old Testament, Jesus acted like a passivist and never, according to any historical accounts, initiated violence. Mohamed and Hitler, on the other hand, were both mass-murders and mass-rapists.,

    The following is already out-dated and it is based on numbers from 2007, only 8 years ago…

    The following is adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:

    Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.

    Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

    Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’

    When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

    As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

    United States — Muslim 1.0%

    Australia — Muslim 1.5%

    Canada — Muslim 1.9%

    China — Muslim 1%-2%

    Italy — Muslim 1.5%

    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%

    Germany — Muslim 3.7%

    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

    Spain — Muslim 4%

    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

    They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States ).

    France — Muslim 8%

    Philippines — Muslim 5%

    Sweden — Muslim 5%

    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

    Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings) . Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam – Mohammed cartoons).

    Guyana — Muslim 10%

    India — Muslim 13.4%

    Israel — Muslim 16%

    Kenya — Muslim 10%

    Russia — Muslim 10-15%

    After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%

    Chad — Muslim 53.1%

    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

    Albania — Muslim 70%

    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

    Egypt — Muslim 90%

    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

    Iran — Muslim 98%

    Iraq — Muslim 97%

    Jordan — Muslim 92%

    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

    Pakistan — Muslim 97%

    Palestine — Muslim 99%

    Syria — Muslim 90%

    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

    Somalia — Muslim 100%

    Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

    Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

    ‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel. – Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

    It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

    Athletes should stick to sports. A lot of research shows that once a huge number of immigrants enter a country they strive to change said country into another Islamic State by ALL actions feasible. Look at our European counterparts and you will notice each is suffering from allowing mass immigration and not demanding that the groups accept those nations and embrace the culture they are entering. Instead, we find Muslims trying to change those cultures to match the those from which they came. Crime is also rampant as thugs roams streets in gangs and threaten the lives of those that live there.

    Think again. Do a lot of research. Immigration is not always the best action.

What about the various tribes (countries in Africa) seizing, raping and pillaging….and selling their own people into slavery? I don’t recall in recent memory the US seizing a country to call as their own. I don’t recall any raping and pillaging. ISIS however, is on a raping and pillaging rampage.

    You can count me among the Islamophobes. Why would any free society want to welcome an ideology that idolizes a mass-murderer and a mass-rapist? The Quran, believed to be the words of the Prophet Mohamed, specifically instructs his followers to subjugate and put punitive taxes on non-Muslims and when they don’t cooperate, kill the men and enslave the women. It specifically gives his followers the right to rape women captured this way (Google “right hand possesses”) and Mohamed practiced what he preached, passing around his female sex slaves among the other male members of his family. Would Keapernick be so welcoming and open-minded about followers of Adolf Hitler?

‘GQ’ Cover Star LeBron James Has Hard Yet Necessary Convo W/ His Kids About Racism

Published

on

It is a conversation that is difficult yet necessary: Racism.

For LeBron James, that conversation was had in depth after someone spray pained the N-word all over his Brentwood home. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the November cover star opened up about the emotional discussion with his sons and daughter.

“It’s heavy when a situation occurs either with myself or with someone in a different city, i.e., Trayvon, Mike Brown. I have to go home and talk to my 13- and 10-year-old sons, even my 2-year-old daughter, about what it means to grow up being an African-American in America,” he said about feeling the “twoness” in America.

He continued, “Because no matter how great you become in life, no matter how wealthy you become, how people worship you, or what you do, if you are an African-American man or African-American woman, you will always be that.”

James explained, “True colors will show, and it showed for me during the playoffs, where my house in Brentwood, California, one of the f*cking best neighborhoods in America, was vandalized with, you know, the N-word. And that shit puts it all back into perspective. So do I use my energy toward that? Or do I now shed a light on how I can use this negative to turn into a positive, because so many people are looking for what I’m going to say.”

That’s when he unveiled, “I had a conversation with my kids. I let them know this is what it is, this is how it’s going to be. When it’s time for y’all to fly, you’ll have to understand that. When y’all go out in public and y’all start driving or y’all start moving around, be respectful to cops, as much as you can. When you get pulled over, call your mom or dad, put it on speakerphone, and put your phone underneath the seat. But be respectful the whole time.”

Earlier this year multiple LAPD units responded to James’ California home when neighbors saw the word scrawled on the outer gate. At the time, James suggested that when it comes to racial inequality, “we have a long way to go.”
