Will a Colin Kaepernick Court Victory, Be a Win for All?

I’ll admit, I do not follow sports. With that being said, I know who Colin Kaepernick is, from his antics on the sidelines. He is taking the NFL to court, accusing the NFL of conspiring or colluding to keep him from being signed and playing in the NFL. I am unsure of the reason why he left the NFL in the first place. Was he dropped or did he step away?

In any regard, I hope he wins his case. If he wins his case, will that then set legal precedence, and thereby making harder for employers to fire employees that chose to protest while they are on the job? Even more so, if he wins his case, will that open the flood gates to ensure even Trump supporting actors, can no longer be “black-listed” from acting jobs? Hopefully this will go both ways, but I guess time will tell.

  1. Did you know that Kaepernick is the new face of Nike’s 30th Anniversary “Just Do It” campaign? Yep, he’s making those coins again despite the entire fiasco with the NFL.

      Yeah, anything for a buck. Nike doesn’t care, they are simply using him and the hate that people have for Trump to sell. It’s a proven technique, and Nike will do well.

      It’s a shame though. But hey, anything for a buck, right?!?! Too bad adidas didn’t think of it sooner. Sneaker wars girl, plain and simple, dollars and dollars alone.

          Doesn’t Nike also release “Black History Month” edition sneakers? Pathetic really, monetizing everything and anything, all the while only donating a fraction of a percentage to the cause they claim to be promoting. Everything and everyone is for sale, apparently.

  2. I’ve had enough of him. I hope to never see/ hear from him again. He started the kneeling movement. He’s a diva, who protests against racism while being richer, and more opportunities than a lot of white people, who he claims are privileges.

  3. He’s a D list player who no one heard of before he took a knee.
    In my opinion he’s a traitor to the people he claims to represent. He’s made a lot of money out of his stance at the end of a fairly mundane career. It was a brilliant strategy. He probably wouldn’t have been renewed anyway because he was t great – so he claims it is prejudice rather than mediocrity that has stopped anyone else signing him.
    He wasn’t fired. His contract wasn’t renewed – BIG difference!! Happens to football players every season.
    I also disagree with you about protesting on company time.
    If I’m paying you, I’m paying you to work for ME and represent MY values. If you don’t like that – work elsewhere. How long would you last working in McDonalds shouting meat is murder? Would you eat in a restaurant where the staff could harangue you?

      I agree Britchy, I’m just trying to see the silver lining in his case. If he wins, then where does it stop? Does an employer reserve the right to not hire? How many people have lost jobs, due to social media postings? If he wins, possibly this could open the door to even more, when it comes to employers discriminating against conservatives or republicans or possibly even Tea Party supporters. We got to take advantage like the left has taken advantage of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

      1. I think sometimes you have to play devils advocate to get a good debate going too! This is a great subject as there are lots of layers of ramifications but honestly? It just makes me despise lawyers even more. If ever there was a group who had less respect for the law of the land it’d be hard to find.

          I just wanna know if I will be able to exploit this as well, or is it reserved for the rich and famous? Perhaps justice isn’t blind!

              The only “news” these days is celebrity gossip!!! Aren’t they just so relevant, they have their ear to the ground and everything!!!! Pathetic absolutely pathetic, and they wonder why no one trusts them anymore.
