Sunday on Twitter, race-mongering former ESPN commentator Jemele Hill slammed the National Football League for “forgetting” to mention the “blackballed” cop-hating Marxist and former quarterback Colin Kaepernick in its Super Bowl ad announcing its earmarking of $250 million for social justice causes.
Saying “football is a microcosm of America,” the ad features images of civil rights icons mixed with clips of NFL players and staffers under the hashtag #InspireChange. There are also several images of players putting on helmets with the names of three blacks who died in police custody: Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, and Eric Garner. The ad ends with the announcement across the screen reading, “The NFL is committing $250 million to help end systemic racism. While the season is over, our fight for social justice is not.”
Clarification: there is no such thing as systemic racism. There is, however, such a thing as woke corporate virtue-signaling, and it’s filling the coffers of radical revolutionary organizations and fueling racial division in this country.
A quarter of a million dollars for social justice wasn’t enough for Jemele Hill. “In that Inspire Change commercial, the NFL forgot to show the part where they blackballed Colin Kaepernick, have only 3 black NFL head coaches and no majority black ownership,” she tweeted.
The notorious national anthem protester Kaepernick, whose corporate endorsements have made him a multi-millionaire, and who proudly wears socks depicting cops as pigs and t-shirts featuring Marxist dictators and murderers, hasn’t been “blackballed,” and certainly not for racial reasons. He hasn’t played football because he’s a mediocre quarterback, an abrasive activist, and a lightning rod for negative publicity.
