Kaepernick BENCHED After The Worst Performance of All Time.

By Jesse Wilkins

Colin Kaepernick, one of the most talked about athletes of the year, just took his biggest “L” yet.  Not only has he lost every single game this year, not only did he praise one of the greatest oppressors in the last 100 years, while “taking a stand against oppression,” but he just got benched in the 4th quarter vs Chicago, after throwing for literally 4 YARDS THE ENTIRE GAME.   592 more words

Telling people to “wait and see" about Trump highlights your own ignorance about the fight for LGBTQ, minority and gender equality

“Why don’t you just wait and see?” has become the conservative and pro-Trump motto since he won the election several weeks ago.
