The NFL remains unwilling to stop Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest. Now in South Florida, to participate in a game with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, he has doubled down by wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt. If you know anything about Miami, and the disenfranchised Cuban-Americans; wrong place, wrong time, wrong topic.
Things grew testy between Kaepernick and a particular media member of Cuban descent in regards to Kaepernick wearing the t-shirt.
According to the Palm Beach Post:
“When pressed about the shirt, Kaepernick first pointed out that Malcolm X also was pictured. Kaepernick said he supports Malcolm X and his willingness to be “open-minded.”
Kaepernick’s conduct on this crosses a line that’s not protected by free speech or any right to protest.
Human rights in Cuba are under the scrutiny of Human Rights Watch, who accuse the Cuban government of systematic human rights abuses, including arbitrary imprisonment, unfair trials, and extrajudicial execution.
Of course there is much to discuss about inequality and race, but if you are going to lead a charge or make a stand, know your topic, know your history. Ignorance will not get you anywhere here, and in your case Colin, the sum doesn’t justify your means.
