Colin Kaepernick is set to redeem himself as the most hated member of the NFL currently, by pledging to donate a million dollars to the most hated radical political group in America. What brilliant idea will he come up with next?
He’s at least willing to put his money where his mouth is, and is pledging to donate $1 million to the groups championing the causes he’s protesting the national anthem for. Of course, those causes have to do with police brutality, and the group he’s writing a check to is none other than Black Lives Matter.
The Federalist Papers reports that:
According to USA Today, Kaepernick pledged on Thursday to “donate $1 million to groups that help people affected by the issues he is trying to spotlight — such as racial inequality and police brutality.”
In other words, he most likely plans to hand his money over to Black Lives Matter, a veritable terrorist organization that uses false allegations of “racial inequality” and “police brutality” to stir up racial animus and anti-cop violence…

I imagine that this will be about as successful as his abstaining from the national anthem, which has enraged everyone and their mother (including Kaepernick’s own, who blasted him for his “protest”). Has Black Lives Matter saved a single black life? If anything, they’ve only cost lives. The resentment they breed towards police makes blacks more likely to behave poorly when confronted by police, which increases the chances that an altercation will occur.
Additionally, the fact that BLM sympathizers have actually killed police hasn’t exactly helped their cause. It was only a matter of time before a movement that idolizes convicted cop killer Assata Shakur would produce actual cop killers. The men who shot a number of officers dead in Dallas and Baton Rouge recently both sympathized with the concerns of BLM.
Not only that, BLM has only worsened race relations when it comes to your everyday American. According to polls, race relations haven’t been this poor since the LA race riots in 1992. Think that BLM accusing every white person of being a racist, burning communities to the ground, and blocking off highways might have something to do with that? I believe the answer is: duh.
