(RightWingAmericans.com) – Everyone has had enough of hearing about Colin Kaepernick, but he doesn’t seem to have gotten the memo. Made famous for his kneeling during the national anthem (and less so his football career), Kaepernick has announced plans for a memoir and a woke publishing company.
The publishing company, he says, will focus its attention on “black and brown writers and authors,” as if black and brown people aren’t already selling books with normal publishing houses.
USA TODAY Sports reported that Kaepernick’s memoir is still untitled, but that his publishing company is coming together and will be part of his campaign “against systematic oppression, dehumanization and colonization.”
Colonization of where?
Kaepernick, speaking to USA Today, said, “I learned early on that in fighting against systematic oppression, dehumanization and colonization, who controls the narrative shapes the reality of how the world views society.”
Again, colonization of where?
The left-wing former football star also said, “It controls who’s loved, who’s hated, who’s degraded and who’s celebrated.”
His latest move may be a result of his desire to keep facilitating change, or it may be a result of the fact that he was unsigned by NFL teams ever since he took a knee during the national anthem in 2017. No matter his excuses, showing disrespect for the American national anthem and for all that it represents doesn’t go down well with fans.
USA Today writer Jarrett Bell claimed Kaepernick’s planned memoir will “fill in the gaps of the past few years, as well as provide more insight on the motivation and methods behind his activism.”
Interestingly, Bell also said, “Undoubtedly, many will want to hear from Kaepernick, who despite being shunned by NFL teams has become a prominent cultural figure.”
The uncomfortable truth for Kaepernick, though, is that the majority of Americans disagree with his protest. His upcoming memoir may be welcomed by social justice warriors and radical Democrats, but multiple polls conducted by reputable polling companies found that most Americans just think he is wrong.
One Reuters poll showed 72% of Americans saying his behavior was “unpatriotic.” The same poll found that 61% of Americans explicitly did not support his actions.
Let’s be honest; most people will see this memoir for exactly what it is. After losing work in the NFL and becoming one of the most divisive figures in American politics, an autobiography allows Kaepernick to set the story straight…or just come up with more wild excuses for why he feels the need to call decent, normal American citizens “racist.”
