Former NFL Player Says Kaepernick ‘Doctrine’ is ‘Single Largest Threat to Black Men’ in U.S.

Kaepernick

Former NFL player Jack Brewer, who is Black, is criticizing Colin Kaepernick over his Netflix docuseries. Clips of the special titled “Colin in Black & White,” were released on October 29th. In the clips, Kaepernick compares football players getting picked to play in the NFL to buying slaves at auctions.

Brewer slammed Kaepernick for the comparison saying “he has an evil, anti-American spirit.” Brewer also chastised Netflix saying the special should be “illegal.” Brewer, who has played for the Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals, said Kaepernick’s comments are harmful to minorities.

During a segment on Fox News, Brewer said, “this new Colin Kaepernick doctrine that’s penetrating the minds and hearts of so many of our underserved black kids is the single largest threat to black men in the United States of America.”

“Because right now, folks are thinking that they’re victims are living in the most prosperous, the most opportunity [sic] in any country in the world” added Brewer. Kaepernick’s annual salary averaged $19 million when he played. Nonetheless, Kaepernick compares his $19 million paycheck opportunity to the brutal treatment and buying and selling of slaves.

Kaepernick says in the clip that coaches and scouts don’t want players to understand that the NFL Draft and training camp establishes a ‘power dynamic.’ “Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod, and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance,” says Kaepernick as actors re-enact slave auctions on screen.

Brewer told Fox News Kaepernick should be promoting positivity to impressionable children. “He doesn’t have that spirit in him. He has an evil anti-American spirit. And it’s sick and disgusting or think that even Netflix -someone that big and popular – would even put something out like that to penetrate the mind of these” kids. “It should be illegal.”

    Why is anyone listening to this POS? He seriously needs to be sent to live on an island by himself to think about what a menace to society he has become. Nike you should be ashamed of yourself for supporting stupid people

    This clown started all of this because he knew he was going to be cut by 49ers. Plus, his girlfriend is Muslim and she wears the pants and is the brains of the pair. Also, he’s a hypocrite, has had the best of everything and appreciative of nothing. Mostly, he’s just a fake! He cares for no-one especially blacks. Anything for attention! Besides, he was not that great of a nfl player. I know of a guy from Florida that was a lot better but because he is a Christian he was crucified by the media and left wingnuts.

    Americans have a choice to become someone special. To share a positive life style with out the color of skin being trashed to fit there narrow minded one sided adjective.
    First off the NFL Commissioner should of been REMOVED! To allow one to disrespectfully our national Anthem.
    Its not ok to spew anger to fellow citizens, ticket holders and those who fought and gave their all.
    The NFL Commissioner should of been Removed. What a sad excuse the NFL Q.B pulled by showing his self with no discipline for our Armed forces.
    There’s other ways to make a point.
    I’m one person who wishes all Americans peace & prosperity.
    And I hope the NFL Removes the NFL Commissioner NOW . The appointed person being the NFL Commissioner
    Reeks !He needs to Resign !

Catholic University Hangs Painting Depicting George Floyd as Jesus Christ

Kelly Latimore's painting, titled 'Mama,' evokes Michelangelo's sculpture 'La Pieta'

The Catholic University of America has a new painting causing an uproar. The artwork depicts George Floyd as Jesus Christ. One student described the display as “heretical, blasphemous idolatry.”

“There’s a fine line between recognizing the innate dignity and righteousness of human beings that are made in the image of God and embracing brazen, progressive politics” student Blayne Clegg told Fox News.

The school said the painting was done by Kelly Latimore and is titled “Mama” which shows a mother mourning her son. It evokes Michelangelo’s sculpture “La Pieta” according to the school. Michelangelo’s work, however, depicts the virgin mother Mary holding Jesus Christ.

Two of the paintings hang in the campus. One in the law school and one in the campus ministry office. The artist has indicated his painting represents Jesus and George Floyd. Karna Lozoya, vice president for university communications told The Daily Signal “you can identify Jesus by the marks in the halo.”

Following The Daily Signal’s report on the paintings, the Catholic University chapter of Young Americans for Freedom started a petition to remove the paintings. One student who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution from the university’s administration stated “there are many students, faculty, and staff who are concerned about this, but there is nothing we can do.”

“The icon has no place at The Catholic University of America; it is blasphemous and an offense to the Catholic faith, but it is not surprising at all that it was put there. It is just another symptom of the liberalization and secularization of our campus” the student added, who lamented, “If we sound the alarm, we will be labeled racists.”

Facebook’s ‘Race-Blind Practices Around Hate Speech’ Came at ‘Expense of Black Users’

Facebook

Newly discovered documents show how tech giant Facebook’s attempt at being neutral came at the expense of minorities and people of color. The Washington Post reports “Facebook’s race-blind practices around hate speech came at the expense of Black users.”

Researchers at Facebook proposed “a fix to the biased algorithm” when they showed company executives an example of the kind of hate speech that was circulating on the social media platform. “

The Washington Post article writes that an incident occurred in which an actual post featuring an image of four female Democratic lawmakers known collectively as “The Squad.” The Post reports:

The poster, whose name was scrubbed out for privacy, referred to the women, two of whom are Muslim, as “swami rag heads.” A comment from another person used even more vulgar language, referring to the four women of color as “black c—s,” according to internal company documents exclusively obtained by The Washington Post.

The post represented the “worst of the worst” language on Facebook — the majority of it directed at minority groups, according to a two-year effort by a large team working across the company, the document said. The researchers urged executives to adopt an aggressive overhaul of its software system that would primarily remove only those hateful posts before any Facebook users could see them.

But Facebook’s leaders balked at the plan. According to two people familiar with the internal debate, top executives including Vice President for Global Public Policy Joel Kaplan feared the new system would tilt the scales by protecting some vulnerable groups over others. A policy executive prepared a document for Kaplan that raised the potential for backlash from “conservative partners,” according to the document. The people spoke to The Post on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal matters.

The previously unreported debate is an example of how Facebook’s decisions in the name of being neutral and race-blind in fact come at the expense of minorities and particularly people of color. Far from protecting Black and other minority users, Facebook executives wound up instituting half-measures after the “worst of the worst” project that left minorities more likely to encounter derogatory and racist language on the site, the people said.
