“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” (James 3:17)
I am in the “world” and I do NOT think or “know” “NFL owners conspired to keep former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick out of the league,” “Colin Kaepernick Gets His Day: Former Quarterback Deposed in NFL Collusion Complaint,” which
NFL owners conspired to keep former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick out of the league. We know it. The world knows it. Now all Kaepernick has to do is prove that NFL owners did, in fact, work to keep him unemployed.
Actually proving that this happened is completely different from just believing it. Nevertheless, on Tuesday, NFL lawyers got the opportunity to depose Kaepernick, the first witness for the quarterback’s complaint that after he began kneeling to protest the killings of unarmed black men, women and children by police, other teams deemed him toxic and conspired to keep him out of the league.
Yahoo! Sports notes that while no one knows exactly where the line of questioning will fall, it is believed that the NFL will focus on Kaepernick’s position after opting out of his contract with the 49ers in March of 2017.
Here’s the way that Yahoo! Sports explains the presumed focus of Kaepernick’s deposition:
Whether Kaepernick expected to be signed as a starter once he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers.
What salary demands he or his representation had in mind early in free agency.
Whether Kaepernick’s capacity to play diminished due to past injuries.
How Kaepernick related to coaches or teammates while playing for the 49ers.
Whether Kaepernick expressed a willingness to continue his professional football career anywhere outside of the NFL.
Perhaps most pressing (and obvious), whether Kaepernick has ever discovered or been presented with tangible proof that NFL teams or executives sought to eliminate him from playing in the league again.
It’s unclear if the deposition will note how many turned Kaepernick’s protest against the killings of unarmed blacks during the national anthem into a protest against America. Many Anglo-Saxon Christian Americans threatened to protest against the NFL if all players didn’t stand during the anthem. Hell, Vice President Mike Pence even staged a walkout during an NFL game to draw controversy to the subject.
Yahoo! Sports believes that the league’s lawyers’ plan for discrediting Kaepernick’s collusion claim is to lead him along a path suggesting that he tainted his value as a quarterback and a teammate by calling out police brutality against people of color and by wearing his infamous pigs-in-police-hats socks during 2016 training camp.
The news site notes that the deposition could take hours and doesn’t signify that an end is drawing near, as there are still several league executives, owners and team personnel remaining on the deposition list. Yahoo! Sports notes that this could run into 2019 before a decision is finally reached.
Or team owners could stop being fuckboys and hire Kaepernick, who is easily better than more than half of the league’s backups and several starters.
What I do KNOW is Colin Kaepernick took a PROTEST to his JOB and now he does not have a job. The people burning flags in the sixties were at Rallies. They did not take the PROTEST to their JOBS. Let’s look at this in a different context to see “Thinking Below The Surface.”
Taking a PROTEST to his JOB is a Talk Show Host telling their Producer they are going to have a SIT IN today. There is nothing wrong with them having a SIT IN, but there they PAY them to do a Talk Show. If they want to have a SIT IN they need to take some of their millions and get a studio or stadium and SIT IN or KNELL until they turn blue in the face, but there they need to be doing a Talk Show.
The same goes for Colin Kaepernick. There is NOTHING wrong with him being upset about “the killings of unarmed black men, women and children by police,” but his JOB was NOT the place to address that. With his millions he should have gotten a studio, stadium or better yet SIT IN or KNELL at Police Stations. The SAD thing is his PROTEST to his JOB did NOT hurt the Police. His PROTEST to his JOB hurt the NFL. This is even SADDER because seventy percent of the NFL workforce is black. There is also the “Natural 666” I wrote about in my “Are You Following The Blind?” Blog.
Along with that being the quarterback he is the LEADER of the team. Owners do not want the quarterback leading their team to “by wearing his infamous pigs-in-police-hats socks during 2016 training camp.” He is the one that “tainted his value as a quarterback.” I also said in that Blog “Jesse Jackson: NFL Owners ‘Have Colluded’ To Stop Colin Kaepernick From Playing’ has NEVER known ‘What Time It Is,’ which shows the ‘Following The Blind’ he is following, ‘Colin Kaepernick Files ‘Collusion’ Complaint Against NFL Owners.’” The ONLY purpose for this Collusion Complaint is to give black people something to RIOT about if he does NOT win, which will get more black people killed and keep Sharpton and Jackson significant.
I also said in that Blog “His situation is NOT ‘Collusion,’ but the owners recognizing he is NOT done with his PROTEST, which means their team would not be his Top Priority. Owners are NOT wrong for not wanting a Quarterback that their team is NOT his Top Priority.” If his Top Priority is NOT their team it does not matter “better than more than half of the league’s backups and several starters.” That was shown with the 49ers’ 2-14 season.
I said in “The Trilogy” (Purchase Button at this Website) “The first thing the Holy Spirit Taught me was to Love myself. After that He Taught me to Respect myself. While doing those the Holy Spirit Drilled in me to always back up everything I say by showing PROOF. I always find at least two articles saying the same thing for my Proof.” I also said in “The Trilogy” “He said he is going to stand now, but he did not say anything about NOT burning a Flag. Knelling on the Flag shows he is capable of burning the Flag too.” The Holy Spirit ALWAYS makes sure my information is correct. I found he did NOT say “He said he is going to stand now” “Did Colin Kaepernick Say He Would Stand for the National Anthem If Signed by an NFL Team?” which states:
News reports were based on false claims made by a CBS reporter, who has since resiled from them.
It was not the first time that a news organization reported Kaepernick’s purported willingness to stand during the anthem. In March 2017, Adam Schefter wrote an article headlined “Colin Kaepernick to stand during national anthem next season,” in which he cited anonymous sources:
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will stand during the national anthem next season, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
Kaepernick no longer wants his method of protest to detract from the positive change he believes has been created, sources told ESPN. He also said the amount of national discussion on social inequality — as well as support from other athletes nationwide, including NFL and NBA players — affirmed the message he was trying to deliver.
Schefter did not quote Kaepernick himself in the article or offer verifiable proof. We could not find any evidence to corroborate Schefter’s claim.
Sounds like the “fake news” President Trump is always talking about. I was sad to find that because being willing to stand shows there is still some “Thinking Below The Surface” LIGHT in him “North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced Friday that his country will be suspending missile testing and closing a nuclear test site, several reports said.” Now I know “he did NOT say ‘He said he is going to stand now’” “Seattle Seahawks Postpone Colin Kaepernick Workout Over the Former Quarterback’s Protest Stance: Report.” The article states:
Colin Kaepernick was set to work out with the Seattle Seahawks this week, but team officials decided to “postpone” (read: cancel) the trip after Kaepernick would not commit to stopping his protest during the national anthem against the killings of unarmed black men, women and children by police.
According to ESPN, the Seahawks claim that they are still considering bringing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback in for a workout, assuming, of course, that he stops his pesky protesting and added that the decision on the quarterback is not final.
The Seahawks reportedly reached out to the quarterback—who has been a free agent since 2017, when he opted out of his contract with the 49ers—earlier this month. Some travel plans were arranged, but those plans were shut down after the Seahawks learned that Kaepernick wasn’t willing to commit to ending his kneeling protest, ESPN reports.
The sports site notes that a day before Kaepernick was deposed by NFL lawyers regarding his claim that league owners colluded to keep him out of the NFL, he was supposed to be auditioning for a job with Seattle, and now we know why that didn’t happen.
This bombshell comes just days after Pro Bowl safety Eric Reid, a former 49ers teammate of Kaepernick’s and the first to kneel alongside Kap, didn’t receive an offer from the Cincinnati Bengals—a team so rotten that they literally were a bastion of hope for some of the NFL’s most reprehensible players—because he, too, wouldn’t commit to stop protesting no matter what happened.
There are Five things in people that allows satan to use them, Hate, Anger, Lust, Seeking Power and Pride:
“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.” (Proverbs 8:13)
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (II Corinthians 11:13-15)
All Five also stops people from “Thinking Below The Surface.” People are full of Pride. Pride is NOT being able to admit when you are WRONG:
“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)
When people cannot admit when they are wrong they also cannot grow, change or see things as they really ARE “Colin Kaepernick: I won’t stand ‘to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people.’” He made millions throwing around a piece of leather. Also, there are a LOT of black billionaires and my son has a six-figure salary. That is NOT “oppresses Black people.” If he would let go of his Pride he would start “Thinking Below The Surface” too. If he would let go of his Pride he would see what he did was WRONG.
Like Kaepernick, how people are handling things is NOT “Thinking Below The Surface” AT ALL “Prominent Attorney Dies After Setting Himself on Fire in NYC Park Protesting Fossil Fuels: Report,” which states:
He reportedly took his life to protest pollution and the use of fossil fuels
A well-known attorney died Saturday morning after setting himself on fire in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in a reported protest against pollution.
Let’s also look at Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in a different context to see “Thinking Below The Surface.” My mother was not, but for context purposes my mother was a heroin addict. Because my mother was a heroin addict I was born a heroin addict. Under DACA I should stay a heroin addict because it was NOT my fault I was born a heroin addict. I deserve to stay a heroin addict because it was not my fault. Under DACA I need to stay a heroin addict. Under DACA I should NOT try to correct my parent’s WRONG. Under DACA I need LIVE in my parent’s wrong. Under DACA I should NOT try to GROW or be BETTER.
Another “Thinking Below The Surface,” I saw “Black Panther” and it was an Awesome movie, but black people are acting like one of Tyler Perry, Spike Lee or Will Smith’s movies made a billion dollars, “Black Panther shows Hollywood that black movies travel well,” which states:
Its performance overseas brought the global total to US$426.8 million (S$564 million), prompting analysts to conclude it had put to bed for good an old Hollywood adage that black movies never make the grade outside of North America.
“Black Panther” is NOT a black movie. “Black Panther” is a “Marvel” movie with black people in it. All “Marvel” movies do WELL. All “Marvel” movies travel WELL. When one of Tyler Perry, Spike Lee or Will Smith’s movie make a billion dollars then black people can say black movies “travel well.” Until then black people need to be saying this is the caliber of movies we need to be making. Until then instead of taking credit black people need to be saying Thank You “Marvel” for representing us WELL. People are NOT “Thinking Below The Surface” when they think a fictional city about fictional characters is “a movement,” “Boseman: ‘Black Panther’ is ‘a movement.’”
I said in “The Trilogy” “I do not want you to think like me. I just want you to think. If we all are thinking the same thing then no one is thinking.” “Thinking Below The Surface” is how to get to the “Heart Of The Matter.”
I have three “Thinking Below The Surface” questions to leave you with. I walked into your place of business and want to use your Conference Room because I am having a “real estate meeting” I “had been working on this for months.” I will “be out really quick type thing.” Are you going to let me use your Conference Room? If I do not think it is WRONG to want to use your Conference Room what else am I CAPABLE of? Will I also think it is NOT wrong to tell a customer to MOVE so I can use the table “We’re fine?”
“THINKING BELOW THE SURFACE” IS WHERE PEOPLE GET TO THE TRUTH.
