Colin Kaepernick’s in the spotlight again.
The anti-American quarterback recently compared police officers to slave catchers.
And an FS-1 sports analyst just destroyed Kaepernick’s analogy.
Here is Kaepernick’s heinous analogy.
A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! pic.twitter.com/BVVPVZIQyD

The tweet was posted in the wake of the Philando Castile trial where Officer Jeronimo Yanez was being tried for using “excessive force.”
Yanez testified that he shot Castile because he thought he was “going to die.”
But here’s the thing – The Philando Castile trial went on for two weeks – with 29 hours of deliberation over a period of five days, with two of the jurors being African American.
At one point, the jurors were split 10-2, in favor of acquittal. However, according to one juror, Denis Ploussard, the black members of the jury were not the two opposed to acquittal.
After reviewing the ‘culpable negligence’ evidence pertaining to the case, the two jurors eventually joined the majority and voted for acquittal.
But since Colin Kaepernick watched a two-minute Facebook video, he apparently thought it meant he now knew more than the jurors.
Sports analyst Jason Whitlock ripped into Kaepernick’s gross analogy.
“Monday on Fox Sports 1’s “Speak for Yourself,” co-host Jason Whitlock slammed free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who compared cops to slave catchers in a tweet after a Minnesota police officer was found not guilty in the shooting death of Philando Castile.
Whitlock called Kaepernick’s comparison ‘stupid,’ reasoning that, unlike slave catchers, black people actually need the police.
‘Kaepernick is so pro-black he doesn’t understand what black people in the black community are dealing with on a day-to-day basis,’ Whitlock stated. ‘They need the police.’
‘He’s not saying that you don’t need the police,’ Fox Sports 1’s Eric Davis interrupted.
‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, when you start analogizing someone to slave catchers — you know who calls slave catchers? Slave owners. You know who calls the police?
People in need. We just had policemen save the lives and take bullets for politicians in Washington D.C. and this ignorant quarterback is at this time, when we just had black police officers take bullets for politicians, and this ignorant wants to compare them to slave catchers. It’s stupid,’ Whitlock responded.
He continued, ‘There is a problem in America and the criminal justice system. He’s not remotely getting at it.
He’s doing things that are popular over Twitter and really aren’t in the best interest of black people who actually live in the black communities because those people, in the inner cities, are calling the police in need of help.’”
Kaepernick can whine all he wants and take refuge behind the sympathetic liberal media analysts who view him as a patriot rather than a traitor.
Nevertheless, to blatantly compare law enforcement to slave catchers is egregiously unpatriotic and a ridiculous blanketed assertion.
