There have been a lot of words already written about Quarterback Colin “20 Mil for 5-11” Kaepernick’s self righteous virtue signaling rant from praise from the left, to caution from the NFL to outrage and some spectacular answers to him from James Woods and Jake Tapper but in all of this click generating ranting going on there is a basic question worth asking that nobody seems to be raising.
Kaepernick is claiming that this country is an oppressor of blacks and people of color and doing so rather loudly.
Yet one of the drivers of this election is: Do we put up a wall to stop the seemingly unending flow of people of color coming here illegally by hook or by crook, leaving their country and cultures behind to move themselves and their families hundreds or even thousands of miles to a completely foreign land?
And you thought moving down the block was a pain
Furthermore that doesn’t even count the tens of thousands of people of color who not only come here legally from all over the world every year but the even greater numbers still waiting to do so.
This begs the obvious questions:
If America is the land of oppression that Mr.Kaepernick purports it to be
Why is there a continual never ending supply of people of color entering the country, legally and illegally?
Why is there not a mass exodus of people of color leaving the United States for greener pastures?
I think that’s an excellent question don’t you and before you answer these questions remember we not only live in an information age where communication across boarders via email, text and cell phone is incredibly easy but we also have a national and international media that jump all over any news of American racial unrest so if America was a land of danger and repression they would know it.
