Uhm, his biological father, who apparently was black, split before he was born. His mother was underage and adopted him out to the Kaepernick family.

It might have been more symbolic than he realized at the time.

I have a feeling there may be many more Kaepernick jersey available in the thrift store in the coming months.

Let’s be inclusive here. Mr. Douglass is one of my heroes, (along with William Wilberforce), but let’s not forget some other icons of American greatness, like Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, George Washington Carver, and Booker T. Washington. Now they could talk about oppression.

Kaepernick is wearing a SF 49er’s uniform and is at an official event with his team mates. He interjected himself into the non-political event to make a political statement. As you pointed out, Mr. Kaepernick is FREE to make the statement that he made, just as I am free to call the sponsors and advertisers of the first game and express my thoughts about his statement.
And I’d like to thank that dedicated 49′s fan for torching Kaepernick’s jersey. I seriously felt like doing the same thing, but my 49er’s shirt is #8, which was Steve Young’s number. Mr. Young is a class act and his jersey will continue to be treated with respect.

Oh, my! Rape from a kiss!
Did they also talk about the fact that Snow White end up as an indentured servant for seven men! She cooked, she cleaned, she did laundry, she swept the floors and tidied up after SEVEN men. I hope they also mentioned the sterotypes that were promoted by using dwarves and by the stereotypical names the dwarves were given…Sleepy, Grumpy, Happy….
The negative social constructs that were promoted in that movie were endless! Endless I tell you!!!! Oh, the horror!!!!!!!!

Our school had the School Sisters of Notre Dame in charge. Sister Marion was our principal and our guiding light and although I was off on a business trip when she died, I heard the funeral was packed with former students.

Just checked that story. It happened in 1981 in NYC and one of the suspects fled to Chicago because he had heard that the Mafia had a contract out on him. The nun survived. It’s a pity the Costa Nostra didn’t get him first, but well, that’s life…behind bars…

Haplo – No, it wasn’t insane, it was good, solid teaching. And you learned from it!

Please cite a link that would show the Libertarians, the traditionalist or the second New Right/religious right protesting and demanding things from college administrations or police forces or the government.
Also I would be very interested to see the proof that no one who is aligned with any of the three groups mentioned above has been working or donating to help the flood victims.

Where the hell are they? The Sahara?
I wish. I so wish…

Just a point of clarification. I hope you meant that the protestors were free to go feed themselves when you said “they were free to go”.

I agree, Tampa. Those that sip from the cup, they will poison their hearts to bitterness and that will devour their souls.

There have been numerous programs both public and privated that were started to teach parents how to raise children. And yes, there are many churches that have men willing to mentor others who are willing to be taught. The operative phrase here is “willing to be taught”.

It’s going to be interesting to see what happens with that. Many “poor” people depend on public transportation to get them to and from work since they can’t afford a car and all that goes with it. Also, unlike the city, where there can be small stores every couple of blocks, in the ‘burbs, it’s usually over 1/2 mile or more away. I’m sure these people being moved into the suburbs are going to just love it…

A couple of years ago, a carnival ride had a failure at an event in our town. A metal bolt gave way and a swing ride suddenly stopped, injuring a number of riders (a couple of broken bones and some whiplash injuries), many of them children. Afterwards, people were running around accusing the town, the event holders, the carnival swing owners and the EMT/first responders of all sorts of crazy stuff, such as not responding quickly enough (the ambulance was stationed two rides away and there were two firefighters waiting in line for the ride with their families); the event holders and ride owners “should have known” (!) this would happen (if they had known, do you think they would have let anyone on the ride?); and negligence (the ride is inspected each time it is assembled and disassembled) among others. People get hurt or in some cases, killed sitting on their front porch. Life does not give anyone a guarantee and not everything that happens is someone else’s “fault”.

Don’t hold back there, Destroyer. Why don’t you tell us all what you really think?
Such apt screen name….

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…Hebrews 12:1
Well done, thou good and faithful servant….

We lived in mortal fear of Sister Callista. I don’t think any of us were ever hit, but one look from Callista could freeze the blood in your veins. She had a way of folding her arms and staring you down… — nobody, not even the biggest guy in 8th grade messed with her.

One of the senior managers for a major energy company was talking to a friend and the manager’s comment was that some of their new employees were from MIT, RPI and UCLA. When a major blackout happened, they were told to sit down and do some major problem solving to get the system up and working. Apparently, they all kind of just sat there waiting to be told HOW to do it. The manager was incredulous.
