    Pray tell, what’s so unpleasant about black quarterbacks?

      I saw that as well. I think what he was theming to say was that racist, white NFL fans will accept a black QB if it leads to winning football.

      Poorly written but unintentional, at least to me.

        Gah!!! Autocorrect got me.

        You guys did not read the line correctly. Czabe said they will even accept unpleasant things about their QB, and then went on to list the unpleasant things that some QBs have done and were still employed and adored by their fans. You guys trolling or did you just read want you wanted?

      Thanks Tony. Good point, and good catch. Clumsily expressed. I have changed it to be more clear on my point. Which is that teams, owners, and fan-bases were not accepting of black QB’s as their leader, and face of the franchise years ago. Thankfully, that’s pretty much no longer the case, although closed minded individuals still exist.

    Kapernick is a confused man. I think he suffers from significant self-loathing and having no real direction or defined goal in his life.

    Being abandoned as a child has really f’d him up. I know he was adopted by a caring family, who happened to be white, but since he appears to have NEVER seek professional help for his under-lying emotional issues, this is what he’s become.

    Denied perceived relevancy from his self hatred for being of mixed race, he “lashes out”, and like America’s former Emperor, shows contempt for his white heritage.

    If this guy takes his own life, I wouldn’t be surprised. As for your comment about policing in America, I’d love you discuss with you in great detail the misinformation put out about the recklessness of law enforcement when encountering minorities, African-Americans, specifically.

    And yes, I am an expert in that field.

    No worries Steve, most common sensed individuals got your point. I’m still chuckling over the whole Rush Limbaugh -Donovan McNabb non story and the self righteous indignation of Tom Jackson that was allowed to be expressed on-air. Right about there I started to lose interest in the 4 Letter as a whole. You just know Kaepernick ,who did this to HIMSELF, will eventually pull some stunt or sue to try to prove collusion amongst the 32 franchises. We’ve become too narcissistic a society to just ignore the constant 24 hour a day headlines and the stupid shit that morons like Kaepernick spout on Twitter. The first syllable of the word says it all. Twits. Hopefully he’ll be able to kneel in the unemployment line without needing any special government subsidized knee pads. Here’s hoping.
