A man who wears Fidel Castro shirts, socks with pics of pigs dressed as police officers, attacks powerful institutions 24/7 openly without fear and even defends terrorists when they are killed. He’s a black man in america. Is he lynched, jailed or made to disappear? On the contrary, he is hailed as a hero by millions and even gets massive endorsements from corporate america. Now how would kaper fare if he did this in cuba, china, africa, venezuela or middle east? Places he seems to be a fan of? most likely, he would disppear or even have his head cut off. Would he be making millions in Europe? Where? France? UK? Spain? Norway, Sweden? How would Kaper have fared 50 years ago? It’s ironic, the man who is supposed to be a champion against institutional racism is in fact the proof that it is no longer a ‘thing’ Remarkable. If i were a professor teaching history of slavery, racism and America’s journey to rectify past sins, Colin Kapernick would be the final lesson of the semester, or final chapter. I would use him as the proof that America has left institutional racism behind, a thing of the past. That America will allow a man like this to become so powerful today and i would contrast it to how a man like kaper would’ve fared in 1800s, early 1900s and even 80s…. I would also contrast it to how he would fare in other countries. My final words of wisdom for the class would be ‘America is the least racist country in the world, what a great country this is.
