Farrakhan: Kaepernick stands for freedom, justice and equality

FARRAKHAN[1]On September 7, 2016, the leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan in a statement praised NFL quarterback of San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick for his fight in the cause of freedom, justice and equality for the Blacks and other non-White minorities in the United States.

Colin Kaepernick has brought a fresh political breath into American sports controlled by Zionist Jews. With image of Kaepernick standing at a podium, sporting an Afro the size of a small solar system, adorned in a T-shirt bearing the image of Fidel Castro and Malcolm X, is reminiscent of Nelson Mandela, urging Black South Africans to “fight back” against apartheid’s violence.

In demonstrations on opening day of the NFL season, players who joined Kaepernick’s sounded themes of solidarity, mass resistance, and of building a Beloved Community. Even openly lesbian soccer star Megan Rapinoe kneeled in support of Kaepernick (watch below).

The San Francisco Police Officer Association (SFPD) in a letter threatened 49ers owner John Edward “Jed” York (Jewish) to take necessary action against Kaepernick and apologize to SFPD for insulting the police department.

We will not stand by while he attacks police officers killed in this country with statements such as ‘People are on paid leave while people of color are killed’. Not only does he show an incredible lack of knowledge regarding our profession and ‘officer involved’ shootings, but also shows a naivety and total lack of sensitivity towards police officers,” said the letter.

It is difficult to explain the true depth of the geopolitical conditions in the world to people in the US without a catalyst. Kaepernick’s current stand against police brutality can be one of those catalysts. To defeat the authoritarian, pro-Empire mindset of many people in the US will take a strategic, revolutionary approach to the question of war. Soldiers are deified in the US because they are perceived to fight for the freedoms that the US supposedly enjoys. Those freedoms are currently being questioned in the domestic arena by notable figures like Kaepernick. Now is the time to question the legitimacy of US foreign policy when its supposed principles of liberty and freedom do not apply to Black America. If the so-called values of the US do not apply to one people, then they must not apply to the Iraqi, Syrian, or Libyan people, either. And an injury to one is an injury to all,” Daniel Haiphong, an American journalist said on September 7, 2016.
