Re: Kapernick article. Good read

Sorry but he wasn't protesting slavery or history at all. His protest was about the actual fact that blacks are far more likely to be shot when stopped that whites. There are many videos out there showing a black man being shot at a traffic stop for doing nothing but reaching for a billfold when asked for drivers license and a white being stopped while openly carrying a load assault rifle and was just arrested. Or a black man and a white man both convicted of rape. Black man gets life and white guy gets probation. Those are the things Colin was protesting, NOT whether your great grandpappy had slaves!!!
