Conservative blogger, Matt Walsh, is always a good read.
He recently wrote about NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand for the national anthem. Kaepernick is fed up with what he sees as this country’s racism towards blacks. (For the record, he is biracial, adopted by a white couple when his black parent abandoned him.)
Mr. Walsh had a few choice observations:
“… I think it could be worthwhile to address your points at face value. As far as that goes, it seems you have only the one point, and it’s a point we’ve heard a million times before, often from wealthy black or biracial athletes like yourself, or from our black president, or from our black attorney general, or from various black congressmen and media members, or from black pop stars, or from black mayors of cities with police departments run by black people. All of these figures — some of them among the richest and most powerful in the world — tell us the same thing: America is a racist country that systematically oppresses its black citizens.
If that’s true, it must be said that America is, without a doubt, the most clumsy and ineffectual racial oppressor in history. When North Korea oppresses its citizens, they starve to death. When African warlords oppress their people, entire villages are butchered and burned. When ISIS oppresses the people it conquers, women and children are raped and killed. When America oppresses racial minorities, they become presidents and NFL quarterbacks. There seems to be a disconnect here.”
