Why EYE am #SittingWithColinKaepernick, and why you should too

Exhibit B

Colin Kaepernick, like millions of people all over this country, has had enough. I've had enough. Everybody I know and love has had enough. If you don't know what we've had enough of, you are probably white and probably live in a bubble that has protected you not only from the injustice, but even from the news of its harsh reality.
EYE have been feeling some kind of way about the Star Spangled Banner and the Pledge of Allegiance for some time now.

EYE rest my case

EYE am convinced The Donald and his white-male dominated media enablers believe African American voters have amnesia

EYE guess The Donald's newly hired Negro Whisperers advised him to appear before majority white audiences to woo African-American voters, and advised the white male-dominated mainstream media to ask all white people all the time how that's working out for him.  RedEye Roll

EYE am convinced The Donald and his media enablers are either totally ignorant, or they think African American are  stupid.  EYE can't believe he has the nerve to talk at (not to ) African Americans and ask what do you have to lose by voting for me?
"You're living in poverty, your schools are no good. You have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed, what the hell do you have to lose?" he added in the overwhelmingly white town of Diamondale.
The Republican presidential nominee also guaranteed, if elected, he would win "over" 95 percent of black voters in a potential reelection campaign in 2020.
Trump argued that he would be a better candidate for African American issues compared to his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
"Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit — who have become refugees in their own country," he told the stuffy room.
Let me count what African Americans have to lose by voting for you Donald.  Starting with our lives.

Then there is the right to vote.  Donald Trump has promised all of his right wing supporters he's going to appoint Khristian Konservatives to the Supreme Court for life, who will roll back civil rights, and make it even harder for minorities to vote.  In addition to upholding all types of discrimination in regards to housing, employment, education and privatize Social Security.

Then there is access to quality affordable health care.  Trump believes on the rich should have access to health care.

So EYE am just going to leave this right here...
As of the 2000 census, the Diamondale, MI community (where Trump spoke) is 92.7% White.  Less than 1% (0.7%) African American.  So what the African American community and other citizens of color have to lose, is the opportunity to correct the injustices you described, created by the 92.7%
African Americans voting for Trump would be like Turkey's voting for Thanksgiving.

That is all.

#GOP hires a Negro Whisperer from #SweetHomeAlabama to "woo African American voters" YeeHaw!

Say Cheese!
Ashley Bell, who eight years ago appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention, was named national director of African American political engagement for the RNC. Shannon Reeves, a political science professor at Alabama A&M University, will provide statistical and data assistance to help the party identify black voters. Elroy Sailor, a former aide to former congressman J.C. Watts (R-Okla.) and who worked on Sen. Rand Paul's presidential campaign, will offer statistical and political guidance to the party.

Who is Shannon Reeves?  He was a democrat before he was a republican too.

Good luck with that trying to get African American voters to vote for a racist/sexist/bigot
Perhaps because he’s now taking aim at an individual American citizen, Donald Trump’s attacks on U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Mexican heritage finally made it impossible to rationalize away the fundamentally racist nature of his campaign.

Republicans have tried, in part by squinting hard, to view his plans to raise a wall across the Mexican border and to ban Muslims from entering the country—which Trump doubled down on following the tragic events in Orlando—as policies focused on security, rather than group identity.
Psst Negro Whispers!  African American voters are not going to fall for the Rope a Dope.  So, count your cheese and go home. 
Last week’s AJC poll showed Democrat Hillary Clinton with a slim lead over Republican Donald Trump in the state. Clinton had the support of 87 percent of African-Americans polled. Trump had the support of 2 percent of black voters.

B-But "All Lives Matter"....... #PaulONeal

Videos from the fatal shooting of teenager Paul O'Neal by Chicago police show officers firing down a street as O'Neal sped away from them in a reportedly stolen car and, moments later, officers handcuffing O'Neal as he lay mortally wounded behind a South Shore home.

"Get down! Hands behind your back! You shot at us, mother------!"
Moments later, officers curse at 18-year-old Paul O'Neal as they put him in handcuffs as he lies face down. Hands behind his back, his arms appear limp. The back of his shirt is covered in blood. An officer holds his foot on O'Neal's leg. Another holds down the mortally wounded man's head.

THIS is the enduring image from the police execution of unarmed teenager #PaulONeal in Chicago.

Police giving each other fives afterwards.

The autopsy showed that Paul was shot in the back.
