[283] Huh?

Colin Kaepernick is an intelligent young man.  He registered a 4.0 GPA at Nevada Reno, graduating in 2011 with a degree in business management.  He scored 38 on the Wonderlic test prior to the NFL draft.  Twenty is considered of average intelligence.  Aaron Rodgers and Steve Young scored 35 and 33, respectively.

His academic status notwithstanding, it is hard to see this business major qualifying as a social critic.  Except in the NFL and its Commissioner, Roger Goodell.  “If his [Kaepernick’s] efforts are not on the field but continuing to work in this space,” said the Commish, “we welcome him to that table and to help us, guide us, help us make better decisions about the kinds of things that need to be done in the communities. We have invited him in before, and we want to make sure that everybody’s welcome at that table and trying to help us deal with some very complex, difficult issues that have been around for a long time.”

Inviting an out of nowhere social activist to help and guide the monstrosity that is the NFL “deal with some very complex, difficult issues that have been around for a long time?”  Huh?  Is this real?  Or is this what I think it is, a white liberal form of appeasement?  Again, Kaepernick started a movement, if you will, with his kneeling in 2016.  But that’s pretty much it.  He has not proven to be particularly articulate in rendering social analyses over the succeeding four years.  But in a Black Lives Matter era, one in which you, Roger Goodell, are besieged with political pressure, it makes sense—political sense, that is—to co-opt Kaepernick by bringing him into the NFL corporate henhouse rather than ward off his attacks and those of his compatriots from the outside.  Take a close look at Kaepernick’s personal, religious, and professional biography.  Stable, academic, or insightful are not words you would use to describe him.  Politically radioactive would be, and that seems sufficient to engage his consultative services.  DC
