    The state of Policing in this country is shameful, and not a point of pride. People should be aware of who and what they are defending. I completely understand people being offended by some kneeling in protest during the anthem. Despite a veteran asking Kaep to do that instead of sitting, I get it. But to make it seem like he has no reason to protest because of his wealth, or because it's some made up liberal lie is just dumb. Too dumb for some of you to fall into that trap. Police officers aren't the best of our society. Actually, they have a higher rate for some pretty heinous crimes than the citizens they are supposed to be protecting and serving. https://www.policemisconduct.net/statistics/2010-q2-npmsrp-police-misconduct-statistical-report/ I guess having "consensual" sex with a young girl you arrested is just perks of the job. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/nyc-teen-claims-nypd-cops-raped-arrest-drug-charge-article-1.3530054

    If you are mentioning the St.Louis police officer who said,"I'm going to kill him", while doing a high speed chase and then in fact killed the suspect the first chance he got. Then went on to plant a gun in his car. Then yes, no one wants to talk about the high speed chase because the issue at hand is the executioner with a badge who did something illegal and got away with it. I take it you've never been to Baltimore. Yes, the cops are crooked. I'm glad you can admit that much, and isn't that what Kaep was protesting....? And furthermore, exaggerating doesn't help make your point at all. Saying "a large percentage of people in that area choose drug dealing and murdering as a way of life"? Really? What are your statistics for this? And do you happen to know how high crime areas are created? When you remove opportunities within the community, remove jobs, and have a severely underfunded school system, over time people will look to alternative forms of making money. I don't agree with it, but I do know that abusing those people's rights by crooked cops isn't the solution to the problem. Investing in the community and providing legal opportunities for employment is the solution. You see most drug organizations function like a pyramid scheme. The guys at the bottom of the pyramid, the street dealers,etc,. they don't even make minimum wage. When you provide opportunities for people who don't have any, they'll choose the legal way to make money(and more of it) over the illegal way. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2014/12/summer-jobs-lower-violent-crime-rate-urban-teens If Baltimore( and yes I know it's a Liberal city, I don't give a F) actually wanted to make those communities better, they would invest in what they knew worked instead of voting with the state for more private prisons. New York is racist as hell. Trying to sum up everything I provided, by claiming they are only about the money is intellectually dishonest and shows you didn't look at the links I provided. We have current and former police officers who are admitting they were instructed to do arrest quotas and falsely imprison Black and Hispanic Americans in the communities they live, but to not do so once those same communities became gentrified. It is the very definition of racist behavior, but somehow you can't see or admit that. Maybe protesting isn't the answer, because some of you seem incapable of changing your mindset once you've been introduced to new information. The rest of your post, I'm sorry, it's biased right wing BS. The Freddie Gray incident was about two white police officers who brutally beat a black guy for running from him, then further worsened his health to the point of death by driving him in a paddywagon while not securing him. Exactly how do you figure it wasn't racial? And for once, try to stay on topic. No one said innocent white people should be targeted.

    Who in the world said all white people were racist? What is this rant even in reference to?

    Ok, so you say the issues in Baltimore, New York, and St. Louis need to be addressed. Ok, define those problems. I'm not sure if you're talking about police brutality or something else. I agree about the War on Drugs. It is stupid and it needs to end. Especially considering it began as a way to target black people. Don't believe me? https://www.forbes.com/sites/eriksherman/2016/03/23/nixons-drug-war-an-excuse-to-lock-up-blacks-and-protesters-continues/#3bcbf04042c8 A Nixon aide admitted it was started to target black people. I agree on the prison reform as well. We can begin by stopping the practice of outsourcing prisons to private corporations. These private corporations add occupancy minimums into their contracts with the State Govt. You would think a prison being under 90% occupied would be progress, but for the State, they are looking at fines from the company maintaining the private prisons and they adjusted accordingly. This is also why we are seeing arrest quotas in some Police Departments. Overall, crime has been going down for decades and continues to fall, but unfortunately that simply isn't good for business. Yes, poor white people are affected by our terrible bail system as well. So yes, it is a rich/poor issue, but considering the targeting of minorities they are disportionately targeted more than white people are. The roots of it may not be racial, but it is being used to target a demographic far more than another. Whether you believe race plays a part or not, at least we can agree that it needs to be changed. Now your last point I just can't agree with. You've taken a very narrow-minded scenario of your choosing and pretended every single white kid selling drugs is doing it in a school bathroom, and every black kid is doing it on a street corner. Where are you getting that from?

    I'm going to go off the assumption you actually want to be informed about this. So here you go: The first link is in the words of an ex-police officer in regards to how minorities are treated by Police. https://www.vox.com/2015/5/28/8661977/race-police-officer This second link is the details of a case 12 police officers have made against the NYPD in regards to arrest quotas and pressure the departments put on officers to violate the rights of minorities. https://www.scribd.com/document/356846939/Officer-Craig-Matthews-v-NYPD-New-York-City Also related to the second link, the third link is a class action lawsuit the city of New York settled, 900k bogus arrest were thrown out as a result. The vast majority of those arrested falsely were Black and Latino. The bring this into further context, these are people who were arrested for no reason and many of them, held in jail and unable to make bail due to their economic situation. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/city-agrees-settle-suit-bogus-summonses-75-million-article-1.2953546 The fourth link shows how Black people are more likely to be arrested for drugs, even though white people use drugs at the same rate. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2014/09/30/white-people-are-more-likely-to-deal-drugs-but-black-people-are-more-likely-to-get-arrested-for-it/?utm_term=.5b6f82e4e9fa

    Apparently you've never seen a fact before.
  7. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    Yes, I am repeating myself. And I see the entire purpose of you responding to my posts was to ignore the fact that other poster was wrong and shift the conversation back to "Kap is bad" lol. Which really proves the point I was making, some people can't leave it at "I dislike this person because of ____", they have to create an entire narrative that justifies why they can't admit the person they dislike has ever done anything positive. It's ignorant, and childish. And with that I'm done with this topic. You can continue on posting as if it means anything.

    If you really wanted to know what he's done since he's started his anthem protest you could use the other half second and find out yourself. 900k in donations is going to a lot of organizations. I'm not going to waste my time listing them all when you really couldn't care less. WTF are you talking about?

    ????? I have no idea what you're upset about. You can face facts or you can pout about it. GTFO is not what I'm going to do simply because you can't handle truth.
  10. NIBGoldenchild

    This is also true, which is why I commend Allen Iverson, who gave to a lot of charities and worked with youth and no one knew about it. John Wall is another athlete that I respect a lot for the work he does in the D.C. community. On the flip side, sometimes a famous figure can highlight a need to a little known non-profit or charity, that can provide support from people who weren't aware of the need or where to provide help. Yet your point is kinda irrelevant to the fact a poster claimed Kap has nothing with his money, and he has.

    https://www.ninersnation.com/2013/6/23/4457534/colin-kaepenick-camp-taylor-pictures-charity I found that in like ten seconds on Google. He has volunteered for this cause. All I am saying is you are more than free to dislike the guy, but taking your dislike and claiming he isn't doing what he said he was going to do with his money and time is just false.
  12. NIBGoldenchild

    No, it wouldn't change my view of the KKK or Hitler one bit. And yes, I'm glad you said you aren't comparing Kaep to Hitler because that's crazy. Regardless, the only reason I responded to his post is to the one line I bolded. That poster is welcome to his opinion, but he is not welcome to his own facts. It is one thing to express your dislike of a person based off what they do or say, it's another to create a false narrative fueled by your emotions. Nothing is so black and white, that you can't admit that he you disagree with his choice of protests but he did donate money to charities. So in regards to your posts, if the KKK gave to charities that say, provided funding to local public schools, just because I dislike what they stand for doesn't mean I can lie and say "they never donate their money to anything positive."

    900k is pretty damn close. Outside of volunteering his time with youth and donating to charities, what else do you think he should be doing to further create change?
  14. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    I said nothing about him slandering the eagles and ravens. I simply corrected you that he has given to charities and done stuff off the field.
  15. NIBGoldenchild

    So you aren't aware of that Kap has donated nearly a million dollars to charities over the past year?

    Rolling R-word's (Trademark Pending) updates..

    Yeah, I actually enjoyed watching our defense play as well as they did. Biggest improvement is the run defense. Third down D and covering the TE is still a work in progress. Hopefully it continues. Sucks that Darby broke his ankle like that. Mills stepped up though.

    Rolling R-word's (Trademark Pending) updates..

    Kinda figured I wouldn't be able to use that broom for a third year in a row. Oh well. Good game Eagles fans. Wentz has that IT factor. He makes plays when the play call breaks down, and that is something you just can't teach. Not looking forward to dealing with him twice a year. Kirk is doing his usual slow start, just one more reason why he is not an elite QB and no where near the kind of money he's asking for.

    Does Kaep's girlfriend speak for all of black america? I think you know the answer is a resounding no. And, I'm sorry to hear you've been a victim of poor policing and this broken justice system. No one should have to endure that. But you are f focusing on Kaepernick, who's never stated he's endured the same experience, but that overwhelmingly, people of color endure what happened to you far more often than any other race demographic and he was bringing attention to that. It doesn't diminish what happened to you, and the fact that your were victimized doesn't negate what is happening to an entire demographic on a larger scale. Do you understand what I'm saying?
  19. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    Ok so, you ask me treated worse by whom, then decide to create a specific minority scenario where less than 1% of a demographic has it better than a large percentage of the country. Is that really a fair comparison? When I stated treated worse, I was taking an average on the full population of each race. You highly disagreed on a specific comparison of your own choosing. Look at the full picture here. The average black american, not just a CEO or athlete, is treated worse than your average white american, not just low income white kids, by the police and justice system. I understand what your point was with going back to your origin, and I'm sure you'll agree that just about every American citizen regardless of race would agree to stay here compared to somewhere else. Regardless, that doesn't justify inequalities. If there is an issue that needs to be addressed, suggesting someone go to a place that is worse isn't a solution. It's ignoring the issue at hand, and it never resolves anything. In regards to your last paragraph, I'm not aware of any of that and I've never seen anyone say blacks should own the NFL. Should the NFL have diverse ownership? If anyone has the wealth to own a team, they shouldn't be denied that opportunity. Go for it. But just because the league players are majority African American doesn't mean they should own it. That's absurd.

    I agree that the backlash is out of control, but I simply cannot agree about the rest. There is factual evidence that shows black americans are treated worse than white americans in this country. If you doubt that statement, I can provide you evidence through studies as well as straight up facts that support this. I do not want to derail this discussion any further, but if you're willing to see the other side of the argument I'm willing to provide it. Furthermore, no one but Native Americans have the right to ask another race if they would like to go back to their "country of origin." And maybe you aren't aware, but there are more white americans on public assistance than black americans, and the percentages are nearly identical. I like to blow up stereotypes, and that is a big one so forgive me for not letting it slide.

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/blog/jacksonville-jaguars/post/_/id/21613/weird-blake-bortles-stat-he-has-5-career-td-passes-when-jaguars-lead You may very well be right, although considering the facts I doubt you would've found many more TDs if you continued. Additionally to only throwing 5 TDs while his team had the lead, there is this little gem: "An interesting not about Bortles' five TD passes when leading is that four have come against Indianapolis." So if the Colts weren't so awful at pass defense this would look even worse. In comparison to the rest of the league: "In addition to Bortles, four other quarterbacks have thrown just five TD passes when their team has been leading over the past three seasons: Josh McCown, Mark Sanchez, Brock Osweiler, and Trevor Siemian. All have played in 21 or fewer games. Bortles has played in 33."
  22. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    He may win them more games. At the very least, he would've pushed Bortles better than their current backup did or outplayed him. Maybe they didn't want to deal with the backlash of signing him. Which I'll admit, would've been more than just potentially their fanbase since this has become a national media story.
  23. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    Btw, for some added context. Out of Bortles 69 TDs, only like 5-7 occurred when his team had the lead. The majority of the rest came in garbage time while they were being blown out and/or the defense relaxed their playcalling to protect a lead.
  24. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    Let me play devils advocate for a moment. Cam Newton thinks Kap is better than some starting QBs in this league. Aaron Rodgers also thinks he should be on a roster. If you think he is simply a backup caliber QB, than you're also saying that probably the worst starting QB with no time left to prove himself to the FO that drafted him is better. That person is Blake Bortles. Jacksonville barely has a fanbase worth mentioning, so they hardly have anyone to anger with signing him. He's clearly a better QB than Bortles. Yet we've heard nothing about the Jags even remotely considering signing him. If I'm Kap, or his agent, I'm at that team and some others and saying,"yeah, I'm not worth Andrew Luck money but you can sign me to a decent deal and I'd be better than who you have RIGHT NOW."
  25. Zero respect for Griffin. Dude is the fakest player out there. Always trying to tweet and say inspirational quotes, how about "Thy shall not commit adultery" you hypocritical a-hole?
