“Any son would be proud of a mom like you” (Page 7A, Sept. 26): Couldn’t take another article on how wonderful Kaepernick and his parents are. Spare us, would you please?
A second-rate quarterback fighting irrelevancy who sees the writing on the wall decides he wants to comb out his fro and take a knee first during a game dedicated to American servicemen and women. It’s playing the race card for cover from a dying career. It’s being ungrateful for all he’s been gifted with as an adopted child of white parents who gave him everything.
It’s a stupid stunt getting new life every time it’s observed. And his police-as-pigs socks on the field tell the real story of this loser has-been who can now opine that his political stance robbed him of a decent career in football when in truth he can’t blame lack of job offers on his talentless carcass; after all, it’s that he took a knee protesting that’s costing him offers – not that he sucks wind as a quarterback.
He’s barely articulate, so he’s poor at communicating his rough life in Turlock where racism did his life dirty. Seriously? Sadly his fake issue with his fake concern is just more fake news.
