THE NEVER-ENDING SAGA OF KAEPERNICK BEING A DOUCHE – Thanks for making another appearance on The Daily Chrenk, Colin, after three months; we didn’t miss you.
With the 49ers visiting the Dolphins this week, San Franciscoâ€™s Colin Kaepernick engaged in a conference call with members of the South Florida media. However, one reporter wanted to discuss something that happened in August, whenÂ Kaepernick wore a shirt that appeared to show support for Fidel Castro, which led to a tense exchange.
The shirt depicted scenes from a 1960 meeting between Castro and Malcolm X, and it bore the phrase, â€œLike minds think alike.â€ Kaepernick wore it to a news conference after the 49ersâ€™ third preseason game, which was when his refusal to stand during the national anthem became a major national story…
â€œOne thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system,â€ Kaepernick said, â€œwhich we do not do here, even though weâ€™re fully capable of doing that.â€
The reporter pointed out that, unlike what happens in the United States, Castro also broke up families. â€œWe do break up families here,â€ Kaepernick responded. â€œThatâ€™s what mass incarceration is. That was the foundation of slavery, so our country has been based on that as well as the genocide of Native Americans.â€
The whole country is a giant prison, but everyone can read. In John Derbyshire‘s famous words,Â â€œWherever there is a jackboot stomping on a human face there will be a well-heeled Western liberal to explain that the face does, after all, enjoy free health care and 100 percent literacy.â€
