Former NFL player Jack Brewer was not happy with Colin Kaepernick after the former NFL quarterback compared the NFL Draft process to slavery in a new Netflix show.
Brewer said: “This new Colin Kaepernick doctrine that’s penetrating the minds and hearts of so many of our underserved Black kids across America is the single largest threat to Black men in the United States of America because right now folks are thinking that they’re victims and they’re living in the most prosperous, the most opportunity of any country in the world.
“You have kids that are hopeless and then you go out and push this mentality and you’re supposed to be someone that’s a leader.
“Think about the movement that this guy started, the opportunity that he had that he could actually come and promote positivity to young Black men.
“Telling them how great this country is.
“He doesn’t have that spirit in him.
“He has an evil, anti-American spirit and it’s sick and disgusting. One more thing.
“That even Netflix, someone that big and popular would even put something out like that, to penetrate the mind of these kids should be illegal,” he said.
From The Hill:
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick compares the NFL Draft’s combine process to slavery in his new Netflix special “Colin in Black & White.”
The first episode of the six-part drama series likens likens the draft to enslaved people being placed on the auction block and examined before being sold to bidders.
“What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic,” Kaepernick says in the documentary series.
“Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary respect. No dignity left intact.”
