Betsy Ross was born into a Quaker family. She grew up a Quaker. She was born in Pennsilvania which was a free State and had already abolished slavery. It is as likely as not that Ross was on the anti-slavery side of the equation.
If the Flag of the United States of America is offensive and reeks of slavery then so to does every African Flag extant.
Slavery is ongoing in Africa. Africans are being sold as slaves as I type this.
Is Africa offensive and does it carry slavery connotations?
If the answer is no, then Colin Kaepernick is a hypocrite.
Are you a hypocrite, Colin Kaepernick?
Nike is hypocritical as well.
There would have been no African slave trade were it not for Africans selling their brothers and sisters enmasse for hundreds and thousands of years.
Everything African is offensive and has slavery connotations.
This includes Egypt and Islam which originated in Arabia in the Middle East.
As a matter of fact, being African and Black Pride is offensive and carries connotations of slavery because Africans were extremely proud of their Slaving history and became extremely wealthy from the sale of human beings into bondage.
If this shoe is offensive and has “slavery connotations”…
How is this shoe not offensive and how does it not have “slavery connotations”…
Egypt is one of the first empires to hold slaves. Essentially Egypt invented slavery. Egypt started slavery thousands of years before the United States of America existed and there are slaves being bought and sold in Egypt right now.
And then there is this shoe…
Africans grew immeasurably wealthy from the African slave trade to the Americas and elsewhere. Africans grow wealthy from selling and trading in the human bondage business at this moment.
No! White people are not solely responsible for slavery or the enslavement of millions of Africans. If everything White is offensive to people like Colin Kaepernick, why isn’t everything Black and African equally offensive to them. Is Colin Kaepernick a simple minded racist? More and more, it would seem that this is an explanation for his behaviors and mindset.
I was a supporter of Colin Kaepernick as you would inevitably find by perusing my blog. I am reconsidering that support and finding myself more and more on a different side. It would seem that Colin Kaepernick has initiated a War on Whiteness.
