The Gospel According to Colin Kaepernick

It is bad enough to be reminded that we sing allegiance to a nation built on the death of indigenous peoples, the slavery of black and brown bodies. It is far worse to be reminded of this by a black man. Given the vicious response to his actions, it seems that no form of protest by blacks is welcome, even a peaceful and articulate protest. How dare a man whose job is to entertain us make us uncomfortable? We don’t like to be uncomfortable, and when someone makes us uncomfortable, we tend to get mean, nasty, and violent.
