Much like the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, still unemployed quarterback and “activist” Colin Kaepernick isn’t what he portrays himself to be to the public. They can talk about all the “change” they want to bring to the system that is apparently racist against them, but it’s never been about helping out black people. Just ask the multiple big money deals Kaepernick has inked with the likes of Nike, Disney and EA Sports, just to name a few.
Speaking of Nike, the athletic apparel company released a new jersey on Thursday — you know, like the jerseys Kaepernick doesn’t get to wear on Sundays anymore — to commemorate the first time he took a knee back in 2016. The Icon Jersey 2.0 apparently sold out less than a minute after it was released online, going for $150 a pop.
“Through his continuous commitment, the number 7 jersey has become an iconic symbol for progress and positive change,” Nike said in a statement, according to Breitbart. “Colin and Nike team up together once again, this time with a Triple Black jersey, paying homage to the anniversary of Kaepernick seeking what’s true.”
Kaepernick posted about the jersey on his Instagram account, where he lauded his former jersey number (7) as being “a symbol for advancing the liberation and well-being of Black & Brown communities.”
Kaepernick sounds more and more like a black supremacist who is promoting the divisive Black Liberation Movement, which ironically is one of the underlying motives of the Marxist BLM organization.
BLM co-founder Alicia Garza said the following during the 2015 Left Forum at John Jay College of Criminal Justice:
I want to start off by talking a little bit about this moment, but I always think it’s important to root this moment in history, cause we don’t want any historical narratives floating around out there. So the first one is maybe an obvious one, which is — maybe it’s not so obvious — that Black Lives Matter [BLM] is much more than a hashtag. In fact it’s an organized network in 26 cities globally. It’s also intended to be a tactic to help rebuild the Black Liberation Movement [BLM] — [comparing with her hands] BLM…BLM.
So the original intent for Black Lives Matter was merely to use it as a tactic to bring back the prevalence of black supremacists in the form of the Black Liberation Movement (BLM).
Maybe that’s the “liberation” that Kaepernick wrote about in his Instagram post. Either way, Kaepernick and Nike have found yet another way to profit off of his “activism.”
