Netflix has given Colin Kaepernick appearances and speech roles in their documentary series about his life, Colin in black and white.
They probably regret this decision.
Former NFL defender and original anthem protester Colin Kaepernick likened the NFL Combine process to a slave auction in the Netflix documentary series describing his life experiences.
In the series Kaepernick recounts, the former 49er appears in a scene where he talks about the NFL’s chances of being “pushed, stabbed, and screened” for mistakes before the NFL set. Players in the “combo” then leave the NFL field and enter a slave auction in the mid-1800s, where white landowners inspect slaves for purchase.
In the scene, Kaepernick says that this is how “they” establish the “dynamics of power”. The scene concludes with an NFL coach and a slave auctioneer shaking hands in the background of bound slaves to establish a generational connection between the process of selecting professional athletes and slavery.
Colin Kaepernick compares the combination of the NFL, which gives all players of all races the voluntary opportunity to become multimillionaires, to slavery. Anyone who still defends this imbecile does not have a functional brain. pic.twitter.com/rMaKi7c6xh

The clip represents not only Kaepernick’s monumental ignorance, but also Netflix’s complete lack of respect for the intelligence of its audience.
Those on Twitter who watched the clip responded, accumulating a lot of contempt and contempt for Kaepernick’s absurd and insulting screed.
I can’t imagine why no NFL team wanted to sign this guy. https://t.co/XAVg4qSglz

I assume that the inclusion of free will and that only the invitation situation slightly changes the dynamics.

White footballers do not exist in this narrative.

So he says the NFL teams actually released him by refusing to sign him?

So the guy whose main source of income comes from actual slave workers in China has problems with slavery?

This weekend: Terry McAuliffe used the predominant black and white as a prop for the campaign, Colin Kaepernick argued that the NFL Combine is a slave auction, and Ibram Kendi said tweeting through a relationship is tantamount to resisting slavery.

Colin Kaepernick compares the NFL to slavery. I doubt that in the history of mankind, slaves were ever in the first 1% of the income class, but what do I know.

The only slavery going on today is in China in collaboration with Nike @ Kaepernick7 has a million-dollar contract
