Colin Kaepernick Claims Black Americans Will Not Be ‘Liberated’ Until Capitalism Falls

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Multimillionaire social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick has now endorsed communism, while claiming he had to team up with avowed Marxists to edit his new black studies book because “black liberation simply isn’t possible under capitalism.”

The former footballer, most famous for refusing to stand for the national anthem, is promoting his new book, Our History Has Always Been Contraband: In Defense of Black Studies, in which members of the grievance class rise to defend things like Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Critical Race Theory.

According to activist writer Indigo Olivier in The New Republic, Kaepernick worked with “two of the most prominent Black Marxists in the country,” and the writers in the book were communists.

But Kaepernick expanded on his reasoning for working with hardcore Marxists.

“I’ve long admired Keeanga and Robin’s work as well as their uncompromising political analysis and understanding that Black liberation simply isn’t possible under capitalism,” Kaepernick said, Olivier reported. “I think the anthology makes this argument quite well, and I hope it challenges readers to see that racism is not white supremacy’s only ingredient. White supremacy persists in part because of its relationship with capitalism, heteropatriarchy, ableism, and so on.”

Per Breitbart: In her interview with the former San Francisco 49ers player, she insisted that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis “doesn’t want you to read” the sort of things in Kaepernick’s book and asked his thoughts on the “GOP’s obsession with attacking Black Studies.”

“Black Studies and, more generally, a critical engagement with U.S. history, threatens the white supremacist status quo,” Kaepernick bloviated. “Any attempt to whitewash the past should actually be understood as a concrete step toward fascism and a desire to build a nation state where power is concentrated in the hands of a self-anointed (read: white) few. That said, I wouldn’t characterize GOP attacks on Black Studies as an ‘obsession’ but rather as core to their white supremacist political project.”

Kaepernick also insisted that white people must be exposed to his Marxist theories because it is an “absolute necessity in order for white people to support the Black freedom movement without unknowingly doing great harm in the process.”

This is all quite interesting coming from a man who is a multi-millionaire and nationally known through his connection to one of the most capitalist ventures in American society, the National Football League.
