Aww…You Mad? Kaepernick’s Million Dollar Book Deal

Published

After being berated by everyone from the president to White supremacists (some will say that’s redundant), it seems the dark cloud hanging over Colin Kaepernick may finally have a silver lining.  Make that a million silver linings.

Page Six says Kaep “has inked a book deal worth just over $1 million with Random House imprint One World“.  Kaepernick has become one of the most admired and hated quarterbacks in the NFL since beginning his protest against police brutality and racial injustice.

The former SF 49er began a silent protest a year ago by deciding to take a knee instead of standing during the national anthem.  Some of his team and league mates joined Kaep at times…others admonished his protest as grand standing and “unpatriotic”.   As the ‘kneel or stand’ debate raged on around him, Kaep held his ground.   Since opting out of his contract earlier this year, no team has hired the quarterback.

No word on what the book will be about, but just the idea that Kaepernick may land on his feet is enough to  bring out the worst in some people.  One man on twitter posted…

Kaepernick could use a ghostwriter—it’s not like he would be the first.  Donald Trump branded himself as an amazing businessman base d on his book “The Art of the Deal”—a book he didn’t write. Writer Tony Schwartz wrote the book that spent 48 weeks on the Times best-seller and sold more than a million copies. Schwartz came out of the shadows and broke his silence about being the true writer after he saw Trump using the book to fuel his run for the White House saying, “I put lipstick on a pig.  I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump…and made him more appealing than he is.” While Schwartz alleged that Trump didn’t have the smarts to write such a book, apparently Kaepernick does.

Ninerswire says  “Kaepernick earned a management degree from Nevada before turning pro in 2011. He had a 4.0 GPA in college and scored an impressive 38 on the Wonderlic test before the NFL draft.”  I had to look up that Wonderlic test…it measures one’s ability to problem solve in a range of occupations.  A score of 20 is considered average intelligence and what the NFL normally requires of a player.  The league usually wants a QB to score 21.

Maybe the person behind that wise crack didn’t mean to be offensive, but plenty of people were offended.

    Quote from Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, “We can’t have the inmates running the prison.”

    The synonym for prisoner is slave. In other words, the NFL owners think that the black football players are slaves. Why do so many black people watch football? Why do so many black parents enroll their sons in football? #FootballCausesBrainDamage

    If you want to create real “Hope and Change,” black football players should not take a knee during the national anthem. They should take off their football uniforms and walk out of the stadium. We can not allow racist white men like Bob McNair and Jerry Jones to continue to make billions of dollars off of our outstanding physical talents. We must take the money our of the racist white man’s hands and bring our wealth back to our community. #RecycleBlackDollars #BlackOwnedBlackMoney

    The racist white NFL owners think that the black football players are inmates in a prison. How much more proof do you need in order to realize that the NFL is racist. How much more proof do you need in order to realize that white people hate us.

    If or when Colin Kaepernick’s new book comes out, I’d like to read it! He probably has what it takes to write a book, unlike the U.S. President
