It has been revealed that Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend Nessa Diab was a large factor in his decision to refuse to stand for the national anthem. A gossip blog column by Terez Owens states,
“As the entire world knows by now, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in Friday’s pre-season game against Green Bay because he was protesting ‘black oppression’ in the United States. We’re now hearing that it was actually his girlfriend Nessa’s idea for Colin to protest. Colin and his girlfriend, Nessa Diab, an MTV DJ, are still planning an Islamic-style wedding.”
Throughout social media outlets Diab has also expressed support for the communist government of Cuba. One Instagram post had a picture of Fidel Castro with a saying that said,
“Castro explains why Cuba has the highest literacy in the world: we have the lowest student to teacher ratio and spend five times as much on schools than war, the opposite of what America does.”
Perhaps she doesn’t understand since she has never been to Cuba. I have. Let me enlighten her. It’s a beautifully gorgeous country with phenomenal people. However, they live in poverty, their is no freedom of the press, their human rights are violated constantly, they have almost zero Internet access, and almost every aspect of society from their clothes to their technology to their architecture is like a picture from the Great Gatsby minus the opulent wealth.
Try and live there for a year and see how you do. Why don’t you think twice before getting your boyfriend to do your dirty work for you by speaking out against the United States. Because make no mistake, she in all likelihood coerced him into speaking out. But the only thing she did was disrespect our soldiers and our troops.
