(Republican Insider) – Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and “woke” social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick has been utterly dragged on social media after asserting that the NFL combine is the modern-day slave trade.
The tone-deaf Kaepernick explained the comparisons between slavery and the NFL combine during his new Netflix special “Colin in Black & White.”
Despite the fact that NFL players work their whole lives to earn a place in the national league and make millions of dollars per year, Kaepernick contends this is actually akin to slavery.
What a slap in the face to the hundreds of thousands of actual slaves who were abused, tortured and made to work for free their entire lives and were considered pieces of property by their owners.
The left has a tendency to make wildly outlandish comparisons that have absolutely no basis in reality. Kind of like calling President Trump, Hitler.
Kaepernick’s documentary is a tribute to self-proclaimed millionaire “victims” of American capitalism, such as himself.
Even though Kaepernick himself got rich in the NFL and college players, of all races and ethnicities, willingly, and eagerly, sign up to partake in the NFL combine and draft process, Kaepernick asserts it’s no better than Civil War era slavery.
This guy is seriously drunk off the “woke” kool-aid and he’s being paid very well to stay that way.
Take a look at this segment from his documentary that shows actors portraying NFL players being morphed into chained slaves being held captive, against their will, at an auction where they’re examined like cattle.
In his Netflix special, Colin Kaepernick suggests the NFL training camp is synonymous with literally buying slaves.

“What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic,” says Kaepernick, “Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod, and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance.”
“No boundary respected. No dignity left intact.” He added.
Fortunately, the Twitterverse was not going to let Kaepernick get away with this ridiculously absurd assertion.
Colin Kaepernick compares the NFL combine, which allows all players of all races a voluntary chance to become multi-millionaires, to slavery. Anyone still defending this imbecile lacks a functional brain. pic.twitter.com/rMaKi7c6xh

Kaepernick spent half a decade crying that NFL teams wouldn’t give him a shot and now he’s decided that actually being an NFL player is like being a slave.
This dude is the most obvious and shameless con artist in modern American history.

Multi-millionaire Colin Kaepernick released a show on Netflix about how the world is racist and they held him back every step of the way.
He has no talent or intelligence and is worth millions — what more does he want?

Football players making $10+ million a year who are free to choose to play or not to play in the NFL are “slaves.” Everyone knows this. Thank god for woke Kaepernick and Netflix for reminding us of this

So the guy whose main source of income comes from actual slave laborers in China has a problem with slavery?

Compare this with troop inspections in the military. The grunts, independent of race, make a lot less than top players of the NFL. Is that also like buying slaves then?
No. The analogy in either case is superficial only and very much construed.

Colin Kaepernick gets paid to pretend to be a victim.

The NFL is a means for young black men to escape the traps of generational poverty and jettisons them into the upper tiers of society. Kaepernick himself experienced this and yet he is the most ungrateful, bitter beneficiary of all that the NFL can do in the lives of those who willingly and voluntarily play in the league.
Kaepernick should just shut up already and be grateful for the millions of dollars he’s made but he won’t because he’s greedy and selfish. While he preaches against the NFL and pretends to care about young black men, the truth is, he’s getting paid big money to spew these divisive narratives.
Colin Kaepernick, who has made tens of millions of dollars playing football, showed up for his NFL workout with a film crew in a Kunta Kinte shirt, equating himself with the slave from Roots. I honestly believe he doesn’t want a job, he wants to remain a victim & woke SJW martyr. pic.twitter.com/sjFpo1NaIw
