I want you to pay close attention to what I am saying.
Black people came up with a list of the black people they wanted to be recognized for black history month and white Republicans decided to tell the black people who shouldn’t be on the list.
Before you continue reading, I want you to really think about that.
Wisconsin Republicans erased any mention of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick from a resolution recognizing Black History Month on Tuesday, saying he’s too controversial to be included in a list of influential black leaders.
February is Black History Month. The Legislature’s black caucus had proposed a resolution honoring a number of black leaders, including Kaepernick.
That didn’t go over well with the GOP. Republican leaders drafted their own resolution that didn’t include Kaepernick.
Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke, who is white, told reporters during a news conference Tuesday that Kaepernick was left off the list “for obvious reasons.” He later added that Kaepernick was a controversial figure.
What exactly is controversial about Kaepernick?
What has Kaepernick done that would be considered controversial?
Let me put it another way, considering all the things the President has said and done in his lifetime at what point would you say anything Kaepernick has done is close to that?
Oh, and Senator Jim Steineke has been arrested multiple in last 20 years.
That is what I thought.
This is why we need more representation in politics.
