Memorabilia from Colin Kaepernick's protest of the national anthem last
year will head to the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American
History as part of its Black Lives Matter exhibit.
Civil rights activist Harry Edwards spearheaded the effort to get
Kaepernick items, such as a jersey and shoes, enshrined.
"I said, 'Don't wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth
on Kaepernick,'" Edwards related. "It should be put right there alongside
Muhammad Ali. He's this generation's Ali."
NFL players have followed the quarterback's example of protesting
America's anthem as a statement against police brutality towards blacks.
The Seattle Seahawks' Michael Bennett announced he plans to protest the
anthem all season. The Oakland Raiders' Marshawn Lynch sat and ate a
banana as everyone else stood during the song at a pre-season game.
"The Colin Kaepernick collection is in line with the museum's larger
collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been
impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement," said curator Damion Thomas.
Kaepernick is still a free agent, partly because teams balked at signing
him after his protests caused a firestorm.
Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party has run out of gas.
Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for ending the disaster of the
Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.
ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.
Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
