Colin Kaepernick is continuing to pretend that he’s oppressed in the United States, by disrespecting the flag, the national anthem, and our military. The longer he refuses to stand, the more his stance will come under attack by patriotic Americans. On the flip side, he’ll also attract other fame-hungry athletes who are eager to jump on the bandwagon and get their names in the media, too. According to Kaepernick and his bandwagon-jumpers, black Americans are oppressed because evil white cops are out to get them everywhere. Why? Because there are occasional accounts of police officers being forced to shoot black men in self-defense, and even fewer instances of police brutality. But hey, these people will let a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch, and turn it into a narrative.
So why don’t we flip that narrative on its head?
Alexander William Burkhart was working as a pizza delivery driver, and was out on a delivery. For all he knew, it was just a typical day. He was called to deliver a few pizzas to Jayvon Cates and Deandra Arnold, and had no idea what they really had planned. When Burkhart arrived to deliver the pizza, Cates and Arnold instead brutally stabbed him. Burkhart was able to escape in his car, but police soon found him. His vehicle had crashed onto the side of the road, with Burkhart dead inside, having succumbed to his stab wounds.
As for Cates and Arnold, they were black men known to police as “local gangbangers”. They had multiple previous run-ins with police, and this time, their motivation was disgusting: robbery. They brutally murdered an innocent man to get a little bit of cash.
The sad thing is, Burkhart wasn’t an anomaly. He was killed in 2015, and in the year preceding his murder, there were six other white pizza delivery drivers murdered by black men. Al Sharpton and his race-baiting ideologues have no comment on that, of course.
So based on this information, clearly all black men must be dangerous homicidal criminals looking to trap and murder white pizza delivery drivers, right? Please — it’s the most preposterous idea anyone could ever come up with. Blaming an entire group of people for the actions of a few is idiotic, but that’s exactly what Colin Kaepernick is doing, and it’s what Black Lives Matter activists do. None of them are willing to step up and actually do something about it. None of them are willing to serve as police officers to make a difference within. They won’t sit down with their police departments to foster a dialogue. Nope, they just pull dumb stunts like this because they want to pretend they’re special, when in reality, all they really are is a bunch of race-baiting morons who need to get a life and stop making the racial divide worse.
