If Colin Kapernick had simply waited a year, he’d be on a contract and making somewhere north of $20 million a year.
And he could have taken a great deal of that money and used it to actually DO something to improve the situation of young black men. Maybe teach ’em a trade or teach ’em how not to look like a Yo and get the attention of police or something. I dunno.
I do know that he could have made a greater difference had he been a player in the NFL than he is now….which is nothing. He now has zero effect on the situation he was protesting. He hasn’t fixed a thing, and now never will.
And had he taken that path his adoptive (white) mother who raised him with the best of everything wouldn’t hate him and be embarrassed by him now.
