Oh great Gridiron Gods hear my plea . . . please, please, please smile down upon the San Francisco Forty Niners Signal Caller, Colin Kaepernick and allow this Ebony Signal Caller  to “rise above” the whims, wishes and gutter-low desires of the millions of White folks who yearn-to have him fail, miserably-so. Don’t let this  broken-bucket full of racist, sexist, islamophobic, xenophobic sportsfans turn this warrior ’round. Help him to “dig” down deep, come out with that 14th round of Ali’s “intestinal fortitude type true grit.”

Why do I ask this oh hallowed ones?

Well in view of the fact he’s today regarded as the contemporary Huey P. Newton of the gridiron, a pig-skinned renegade – who must be put-back in his place . . .  preferably out of the NFL. Millions can’t wait to banished, ban and bar Kap for disrespecting “their” flag. He’s been branded a “uppity Negro,” arrogant and ungrateful, having the audacity to not kiss the asses of White people by silently honoring their historical symbols of power and dominance. They wonder; “Doesn’t this boy understand the unspoken truth? White folks “let him play?” Is he not aware they “allow” him to participate and they alone facilitate his riches?

Isn’t that what this whole “Kaepernick Affair” is really about?  Black people capitulating, surrendering, i.e., submitting to the White man’s history, “his story,” “his” glorified version of the American Story, i.e., “American Exceptionalism, Manifest Destiny . . . . ? A tale in which in  he’s the hero, “Super White Man” and the rest of us are mere unsophisticated savages who actually benefited from our oppression. A tall-tale in-where the illustrious “founding fathers,” despite being “genocidal imperialist” almost wiped the American Indian off the face of the planet while too being oppressive slave holders –  were really swell, super-neat guys, who despite not having the balls at the birth of this empire to side with Thomas Jefferson and declare Black slaves both humans and free – we should nonetheless wholeheartedly honor their  “hi’ n’ mighty” symbols which embody, as far as most Americans of color are concerned, hollow words because they never really applied to anyone but White men. We never have been considered full 100% real American  US citizens, let alone actually humans. Laws and the Bill of Rights don’t apply to us. We’re guilty of any n’ everything until proven otherwise in the court of WASP public opinion.

Saluting the American flag, “Ol” Glory is akin to Blacks and other Americans of color raising the White flag of surrender – ignoring and dismissing US History merely to please and appease dismissive and delusional White folks who honestly believe Black folks are “better-off” here in America, under any circumstances compared to life in Mother Africa, where yes of course – we’d be chasing our dinner, and our dinner would be chasing us –  so much better-off that we ought sit down and shut the blank-up.

Allow Fredrick  Douglass to break-it down for you; What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.”

This “seldom seen and hardly ever heard” “ type/model is what most Euro-Americans prefer and would like all Black people to blindly adhere-to. And this is particularly true in the case of entertainers and athletes. Kap is 180 degrees away from the spineless, mindless sellout “Uncle Tom”  which Jordan, Tiger and Barkley turned-out to be. “House-Negroes” who sat quietly by and didn’t say anything to piss-off White coaches/owners/fans and consumers when it came to any social/economical or political question being discussed at the big table.They set the tone throughout the 1990’s and well into the new millennium and the Obama years – it was so- quiet within the sports world when it came to gladiators coming out of their titanium penthouses and speaking truth to power, thus endangering their millions by offending White folks . . . that you could hear a dehydrated rat piss on cotton.

No instead it appears #7 is cut from that same vintage, retro 1968 Black leather as Tommy Smith, John Carlos, Arthur Ashe and Ali.

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day it’s a new life  for the centuries old “Black struggle” in America, thanks to Colin Kaepernick. The Black American Empire owes this young man a debt of gratitude. Dig this, it’s been a long-ass time since so many owed so much to so few, just one man. . . . . And might I add, it’s been timely – with White folks today losing their collective  minds and all, simply because they no longer weld unquestionable, unapproachable absolute, audacious White power, which resulted in absurd privilege since the 16th century.

That’s a long ass time.

The unofficial, unspoken NFL company-line and law of the land for Black sportsmen  is “Look boy, we don’t pay you all this money to run your mouth, flap them big lips – just run your black ass down that field and make us champions and gazillionaires!” I pray Kap, after telling the truth about America, ends up averaging 250 plus yards thru the air,  another 75 key, strategic yards rushing  and 2 or 3 TDs – if he can play at the level he played at yesteryear, some of those in this lynch mob of racist, xenophobic “real”  American sportswriters and fans hopefully choke on their words as this season plays-out. Sorry, that’s just the goddamn truth.
