Kaepernick: Independence Day Robbed My Ancestors

Colin Kaepernick commemorated the 4th of July by indulging in the history of the land he calls “home.”

You know, Ghana.

The world’s most famous unemployed quarterback tweeted a one minute long video on Tuesday, which featured Kaepernick on a trip to Cape Coast Castle in Ghana, a place which once served as a major center of activity in the slave trade.

If any doubt remained over whether Colin Kaepernick cares whether he plays in the NFL again, these posts should put those doubts to rest. What these posts also reveal is Kaepernick’s breathtaking lack of historical knowledge. Slavery did not begin on the 4th of July, as Kaepernick implies here by referring to it as a day that “intentionally robbed” his ancestors of freedom.

The first African slaves arrived in what was to be America in 1619, no less than 150 years before Thomas Jefferson penned our rebuke to British tyranny. In fact, if you mark the beginning of slavery under the United States from the signing of the Declaration of Independence up through the signing of the 13th Amendment, which formally abolished it, slavery lasted 89 years under the Stars & Stripes. Significantly less than the 150 some-odd years that it existed under the Union Jack.

But to the point, the United States inherited the problem of slavery. It did not create the problem of slavery. Therefore, it cannot be said that the 4th is a day that intentionally or unintentionally robbed Africans and slaves of their independence.

A free black man was still a free black man on July 5th 1776, and a slave was still a slave.

Moreover, Kaepernick should be celebrating the 4th of July. The Civil War ended slavery in this country. If it wasn’t for American independence, and a union between slave states and non-slave states, then there never would have been a Civil War.

Sure, the English had aggressively tried to end slavery throughout their empire in the early 19th Century, and presumably would have attempted that here. However, how many Antietam’s, Bull Run’s, and Gettysburg’s do you think the English public would have endured before calling it quits?

My guess is not too many.

            Now look here boy. I let you polish my Cadillac and now you want to steal it and paint it yellow and purple. If you want a Caddy you’ll just have to steal one somewhere else. And don’t expect me to pay for the curb feelers, hood ornament and ugly paint job. That’s coming out of your welfare check. I know how hard it is for you niggers to be honest, but if you try hard enough maybe you can for about five minutes.

          • The Redman

            I got yo “boy” hanging low, bobbie-jo, skinned back, and ready 2 go, in yo ho mama long neck. hahahahahahhaahahah. she was the 1st “nigger” U saw when the mid-wife pulled U from her flat asz. hahahahahhahahahha. the only “Cadillac” a greasy head pinkie like U ever drove was a car wash, may B. I bet U drive dem lice real good. hahahahahahahah

          • Robert Wayne

            Hey boy, I’m not putting up with anymore of this nigger nonsense. I want you to be a good boy. Wash and wax my car. Then shine my shoes. And then do some of that crazy African monkey dancing. That always makes me laugh. It’s always funny to watch you porch monkeys sing and dance

          • The Redman

            I bet U, and yo tramp mama steal cars 4 a living. hahahahahahaha. white-folks like U, and yo inbred family sleep in unlocked cars, and pick each other lice while plotting 2 rob garbage can the next day like stupid monkey-pucks. hahahaahahahhahah. bobbie-sue-wayne and his nigger inbred family. hhahahahahahahahahaha

          • Robert Wayne

            Damn! You jig monkeys continue to make me laugh with your stupid behavior. Now I know I’m better than you since I’m white and you’re a nigger and you know I’m better than you. But we white people aren’t nearly as good at stealing cars as you niggers are. It’s like ducking away from work, playing basketball and making up those stupid little rhymes that you call ‘rappin’. It doesn’t take much upstairs, and for that reason you niggers have a talent for it. By the way, tell your big fat mammy that I want the silver polished. I’m having guests for the weekend and after y’all finish polishing the silver, I still want my car washed and waxed and my shoes shined. Can’t you niggers do anything right?

          • The Redman

            A stupid nigga-wigga like U, think “silver” is what’s up. 2 stupid 2 know dat it poisoned most of U snake-mouth stink skin inbreeds. white-folks will always B jello’s of people of color, they R God choosing people, and yall demons in pink skin know it. so, 4 now, go ta Hell, dog breath loser. hahahahahahahahaha.

            you are just showing your ignorance redman. talk like a human being. please. you have a chance to say what you want, but you talk like a punk dumbass. you think that makes you look and sound cool. you are so wrong. check your history. people of any color that have a goal and are driven can make it anywhere. did you know that one of the very first millionaires women in america was a black women. she was driven and decided not to just get by. she worked. you go thru any city in america. standing on the corner are a bunch of black men, young and old, complaining about how they have been mistreated and held down. she became a millionaire in a time much different from now. it was much harder for her. know your history. the first registered slave owner was a black man.

          • The Redman

            white-folks stole dat lady broke. didn’t put dat in yo lie book of inbred books, huh. dick-den, and now. hahahahhahaahahah

        it is stupid talking like that is exactly what that spoiled quarterback is whimpering about. there isnt a single person alive today that was involved with any of that slavery stuff back then. when are you going to realize and you should check your history. their were just as many black slave owners as whites, do you know about white indentured slaves. check it out. it wasnt white people only involved with what is wrong with this country. look at al sharpton, charlie wrangle, jesse jackson. learn about some of the policies and decisions they were involved in. before you start saying what you said, check it out before you show and demonstrate just how misinformed you are.

  • Robert Wayne

    Shitheads like Kaepernick and morons who agree with him like the red ass will never leave this country as long as white fools keep catering to scum like them. They pretend to be a victim to get freebies. And as long as there are white people who are stupid enough to fall for their little games the same thing will keep happening.
