“Oppressed” NFL football players like Colin Kaepernick benefit greatly from the “oppressive” country that gave them the opportunity to land multi-million dollar contracts with the NFL, while realizing their childhood dreams of becoming football stars. But rather than showing any type of appreciation for the very same country that gave them these opportunities, we continue to see these idiots hijacking America’s favorite pastime to whine about the “injustices” of our country, as they continue to kneel during our National Anthem.
As tens of thousands of Texans battle the aftermath of the hurricane that ripped through their communities, we’re beginning to glimpse into the heart and soul of what makes America, America. While loudmouths like Kaepernick could easily use his social media presence to rally his base and organize relief efforts, he’s obviously too self-absorbed with plotting his next bout of anti-American antics to give flying crap about suffering Americans.
As Kaepernick now actively organizes with the NAACP to paint the outlandish narrative that the NFL not signing him is because they’re racists, an NFL player for the Houston Texans has made every racist NFL player look like even bigger jackasses than they previously were, with the amazing thing he just did for Hurricane Harvey victims.
Justin James “J. J.” Watt is an American football defensive end for the Houston Texans, and has an extremely rigorous training schedule as the NFL season begins to kick off. But rather than whining about how the NFL is racist, or how America is oppressive, J.J. has been spending every waking moment organizing hurricane relief efforts, where he’s raised a whopping $20 million dollars just in the last week and a half alone.
“The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year is earning the MVP in Houston with his Houston Flood Relief Fund,” Political Insider reported. “Thanks, in part, to some big celebrity and corporate names, like Drake, Ellen, Walmart, and the Tennessee Titans Organization, along with almost 200,000 other generous people across the world, what started out as a $200,000 fundraising goal turned into 10 times that in a week and, by the time you read this, they’ve probably already surpassed the new goal of $20 million!”
J.J. reported over twitter that the physical donations pouring in so fast, that the money that was raised hasn’t even been tapped into yet. Pictures of supplies overflowing from storage spaces and trucks could be seen, where these supplies were donated in a massive distribution event over the weekend to the suffering Houston community.

What’s even more amazing is that after raising all this money and coordinating the relief efforts, J.J. has been hands-on and involved ever step of the way, even physically going to the distribution centers and handing out supplies.
In a recent interview with James Palmer, J.J. was asked about how many hours a day he’s spending on relief efforts, and his answer was remarkable:
“I asked Watt how many hours he’s spent on his fundraiser and planning this event since he arrived in Houston with the rest of his teammates on Wednesday. “All of them,” he said, smiling. Outside of a two to three hour workout each day, Watt has spent every second working with either Houston mayor Sylvester Turner, people from the Justin J. Watt Foundation, or volunteers to make this massive project a success in just a few short days. There is no question there were also a few prayers Saturday night that things would go off without a hitch.
Many professionals — let alone professional football players — struggle to lead groups during a time of crisis. Watt has done it brilliantly. I asked someone close to Watt, who has been with him during every step of the planning and preparation, how much of this he’s actually been hands-on for. She responded, “All of it.”
As for the tens of millions of dollars he’s raised, J.J. says, “I’m going to take my time, make sure that I work with local organizations that we do it right here in the city so that money goes straight to the people here of Houston who need it the most so that we can help rebuild them.”
If morons like Colin Kaepernick truly cared about America and wanted to be a positive force for “change” like they claim, they’d be first in line to help pass out boxes of food and supplies to these suffering victims. Kudos to J.J. Watt for not only taking time out of his busy training schedule to help the community, but showing us what a true American hero should look like, on and off the football field.
