GENOCIDE. If the #NFL knew what was BEST, or cared about the FREEDOM of Black people, they wouldn’t listen to this ass-hat of a “president” nor fine players — 80% are black! — for peaceful protests. And shame on the players for their selfishness! Security is important, especially when you have families to support, but as we learned with ACT UP, #SilenceEqualsDEATH.
This isn’t about the flag, or the “national anthem” which is a racist bop Woodrow Wilson lobbied to make the country’s banner song for 15 YEARS! (His daughter made a #RebeccaBlack ‘Friday’ cover of “José Can You Sing” or whatever it’s called, back in the day, so naturally it needed to be our official song 🙄.) If anything, it should be AMERICA The Beautiful (it’s really not, but the song slaps), or LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING. YAAAAAS, #Beychella! 👸🏽 Unlike the song Whitney sang in THE GREATEST PERFORMANCE OF ALL TIME, these song alternatives don’t praise slavery or threaten to re-enslave BLACK soldiers who refused to join the Brits in battle.
Ooooh, but that “patriotic” US military marketing kickback $$$$ from militaristic advertising during Sunday/Monday football is more important than the safety and well-being of innocent Black and Brown people dying at the hands of senseless/“legal” 😤🤬😳😭 #policeviolence; dying at the hands of “I don’t feel safe” self-appointed neighborhood watchers, students, and park-goers; dying at the hands of the COUNTLESS “lone wolf” White mass-murders who are simply taken to jail with pit stops at McDonalds! This country. I can’t. We can’t. The #RoyalWedding was cute and all, but I need some REAL activism from ALL my friends. I don’t care who or what you are—if your comfort takes prescience over my safety, my ability to walk and live as freely as you, without fear of losing my life in the name of #CAPITALISM, at any moment, then we have a serious problem! #YGBQ #ColinKaepernick These men are literally damaging their brains like Roman Gladiators. Here’s a thought: Can’t we just abolish American Football, aka the new slavery, and just do #WorldCup Like everyone else?!? #Yale #BlackLivesMatter #Cookout
