Colin Kaepernick Responds To Justice Ginsburg’s Remarks
According to TMZ, Ginsburg told Katie Couric in a recent interview that she didn’t have any respect for Colin’s “dumb” protest…but he and all other “stupid, arrogant” athletes who care enough about the police executions of unarmed Black men to make a stand are well within their right to do so.
“I think it’s dumb and disrespectful…If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that.”
SMH. These lifelong seats are seeming like a worse and worse idea with each year they age into senility and outspoken bigotry. Either way…Colin had a response:
“It is disappointing to hear a Supreme Court Justice call a protest against injustices and oppression ‘stupid, dumb’ in reference to players doing that.
I was reading an article and it refers to white critique of black protests and how they try to delegitimize it by calling it ‘idiotic, dumb, stupid,’ things of that nature, so they can sidestep the real issue.
As I was reading that I saw more and more truth how this has been approached by people in power and white people in power in particular.”
Colin also says that the flag, though white people hold it in the highest regard, isn’t more worthy of respect than human life:
“At the end of the day the flag is just a piece of cloth and I am not going to value a piece of cloth over people’s lives.”
Look at Colin, keeping it classy. Better than resorting to calling rude names and being dismissive…like this judge in this highly respected position.
