(GrasstopsUSA) -- Colin Kaepernick, 49ers quarterback and starter for Black Lives Matter, is a celebrity poseur receiving accolades for slandering America.
Kaepernick refuses to stand for the national anthem, because, "I am not going to stand up to show pride for a country that oppresses black people and people of color" – says the athlete whose own oppression is symbolized by the $141-million contract he signed recently.
From the G20 Summit in China, Obama observed that Kaepernick "cares about some real issues" and "what he's doing has generated more conversation around some topics that need to be talked about." (Try to imagine our race-obsessed president expressing sympathy for a college student who was under attack for supporting Israel.) I suppose if he'd burned the flag, Kaepernick would have started a national dialogue.

Apparently, we oppress people of color by not lynching cops involved in fatal shootings who've been exonerated by the legal system.
The bitterly oppressed Kaepernick lives in a country with thousands of black officeholders from our two-term president to city councilors and judges. Other forms of oppression include quotas and hypersensitivity to charges of racism, no matter how absurd.
