Who’s Gonna Hate on Colin Kaepernick Now?

This will lead to confused feelings about Colin Kaepernick.

His refusal to stand during the national anthem last season turned into a slow free agency for Kap this offseason. Some general managers “genuinely hate him and can’t stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]. They want nothing to do with him. They won’t move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment.” Harsh. Kap’s possibly being blackballed for that and a host of other reasons.

Yet, here he is helping convince Turkish Airlines to use their planes to cargo food and water drought-stricken Somalia.

It all started with Internet celeb Jerome Jarre imploring Turkish Airlines to help send food and water to the country.

The hashtag, #TurkishAirlinesHelpSomalia, went viral and attracted celebs like Kaepernick and YouTube star Casey Neistat, and eventually Ben Stiller’s foundation joined in to handle all the money raised through their GoFundMe page, Love Army for Somalia.

The page seeks donations for getting food and water to Somalia. So far, it’s raised over $1.3m dollars.

Kaepernick himself donated $25,000.

So, what are those same general managers, who hate him for kneeling during the anthem, gonna feel about someone who does charity work for the world and the community around him? Knowing GMs, they don’t have the guts to go out on a limb and sign Kaepernick.

    Turkey is now an Islamic dictatorship threatening Europe with the “weapon” of more Islamic immigrants. If any leaders there outside of Hungary and Poland had any balls they would build a WALL.

    This effort here with Colin is propaganda considering Turkey is causing more famine and suffering by what it is intentionally doing in Syria and against Kurds than is taking place in Somalia because of that country’s general shittiness and mismanagement. Good for Colin, but he is still being used — first by BLM and now Turkey.

        Islam is not a race, dummy.
        Islam is a political-religious ideology best suited for 700 years ago as a reading of its text calls for oppression of women, the death of gays, the death of anyone that leaves the religion, and the death of anyone that refuses to submit to the religion. Your virtue-signalling was pathetic.
