Colin Kaepernick is on the right side of History

“I don’t give a #^&# what nationality a man is or which God he prays to…if he willingly sticks out his neck for me…Then I’m proud to call him brother!”, Vic – The Original Voice of One!

My mentor cursed, smoked and drank like a sailor because…He Was! a former sailor who served during the World Wars.

He’d spent a great deal of time at sea with different kind folks and experienced many adventures.

Vic was a straight shooter and also in the neighborhood known as a Man Of Respect! As far as he was concerned there were only two sides to life…Right and/or Wrong.

Gray was a color which he did not care for at all.

“Right never goes to wrong kid…wrong has to come to right, it can take a while but wrong will always come to right eventually!”, Vic

Colin Kaepernick is on the right side of history here and even though the NFL owners have clearly and without a shadow of doubt colluded against him, while – knowingly – allowing CONVICTED! criminals to continue play in the league!

Singling out a man who’s only crime is to Silently and Peacefully Protest injustices against minorities in this country has to be a Civil Rights violation.

Hell, not allowing him to earn a living is obvious Employer Discriminatory Treatment and yet no one in the NFL or else where for that matter calls it what it clearly is!

It speaks volumes to the state of the National Football League and of our country.

Basketball was my mentor’s passion and his favorite team were the Los Angeles Lakers, but I learned over the years to expand my horizons into other sports’ arenas. The Original Voice of One taught me one thing which is applicable to every sport…how to recognize a moment

“I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE IN THAT SITUATION. WHAT IT IS TO BE PULLED OVER, OR PROFILED, OR ANY NUMBER OF ISSUES THAT HAVE HAPPENED, THAT COLIN WAS REFERENCING — OR ANY OF MY TEAMMATES HAVE TALKED TO ME ABOUT. … BUT I KNOW IT’S A REAL THING MY BLACK TEAMMATES HAVE TO DEAL WITH.”– Aaron Rodgers

Thank you!, Aaron

Colin history is on your side brother!

“Always remember this kid…it’s better to share a good meal among friends than eating #^&# all by yourself!”, Vic
