Is Donald Trump the White Man’s Colin Kaepernick?

Any fan of football, or political enthusiast is well aware that Donald Trump does not see eye-to-eye with Colin Kapernick’s version of social justice.  White Conservatives tend to love Donald Trump, and social justice whiners warriors of all colors believe that Kaepernick’s erratic version of social activism actually garners some level of respect. But when we remove the polarity of their opposing viewpoints from the equation, it seems that both Trump and Kaepernick serve the same role for the people who share their respective outlooks. At times it can seem as though Donald Trump is the White man’s Colin Kaepernick.

There was an announcement today that Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant of the Golden State (Social Justice) Warriors each pitched in $10,000 to help Kapaernick’s causes and charities.  Now, the money seems to be a token amount.  Both Durant and Curry make are slated to bring in over $60 million this season, combined. What is important here is the symbolism of the effort and that Curry and Durant had the chance to grandstand a bit for “social justice” and talk up their friend who has been doomed to irrelevance on the professional gridiron.

“There are a lot of people that want to be in the dark about who they are and what they believe in. They want it to stay in the dark,” Durant said. “So I think he kind of brought everything to light. And a lot of people that he uncovered some truths about, they hate him. And the people that love him enjoy that he’s kind of been a whistler-blower for some of that stuff.”

Durant said that although many NFL power brokers and fans dislike the protests, “It’s a conversation we need to have, and maybe he’s uncovering some stuff that’s going on in the higher-ups and front offices and the executives, that people don’t want to hear about.”

Durant added, “I love what he’s doing. He’s taking the brunt of the punch for everybody who believes what he’s standing up for. So all power and respect to him.”

Durant’s words, intended as praise for Kapaernick’s and his form of peaceful protest, could absolutely be used in the context of describing Kap’s antithesis, President Donald Trump.  Durant’s quote would fit in perfectly into a fictitious interview about what Trump means to his supporters.

“There are a lot of people that want to be in the dark about who they are and what they believe in. They want it to stay in the dark,” said Jason Todd, author at WarAgainstTheWhiteMale.com  “So I think he kind of brought everything to light.  For example, his comments about Mexican immigration in July 2015. He simply said what was on millions of Americans minds.  Truths that were too risky for your average American citizen to openly discuss.  And a lot of people that he uncovered some truths about, they hate him.  Millions hate the concept of a border wall and millions of liberals, feminists and illegal aliens are furious that their anointed Queen Hillary never assumed power. The state of the NFL is trivial matter compared to the problems that cross his desk as President, however, he hit a nerve when he said that kneelers like Kapaernick and Michael Bennett should be fired for protesting during the National Anthem. And the people that love him enjoy that he’s kind of been a whistler-blower for some of that stuff.”

Todd said that although many mainstream media moguls and their illiterate followers dislike Trump and his voters, “It’s a conversation we need to have, and maybe he’s uncovering some stuff that’s going on in the [Deep State] and [lawmakers] and [Congress], that people don’t want to hear about.”

Todd added, “I love what he’s doing. Freedom of Speech is every American’s birthright, but employers will penalize a worker for discussing their political positions, even while not on the clock. He’s taking the brunt of the punch for everybody who believes what he’s standing up for. So all power and respect to him.”

While readers of this blog understand that Trump is the flag-bearer for traditional America, and Kapaernick is in many ways our antagonist, both of them serve similar roles; as lightning rods that energize their base of supporters and repel the opposition.  Their respective rise to prominence is indicative of the growing divide and disharmony in the United States.
