    Cruz Adds ‘Context’ After Kaepernick Quotes From Frederick Douglass ‘Fourth of July’ Speech I5Bn3

    Cruz Adds ‘Context’ After Kaepernick Quotes From Frederick Douglass ‘Fourth of July’ Speech $

    Sen. Ted Cruz responded Thursday night after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a passage earlier on the Fourth of July from a famous speech by Civil War-era abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

    The passage Kaepernick cites is from Douglass’ speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”

    Douglass delivered to the speech at a meeting of the Rochester Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society in Rochester, N.Y., on July 5, 1852 – nearly nine years before the Civil War began.



    But the former San Francisco 49ers signal-caller includes a video montage of a longer version of the speech, accompanied by drawings depicting American slaves and photos from the Civil War era. Interspersed are videos from recent years, showing police using force against people of color.

    Kaepernick has gained notoriety in recent years for drawing attention to the issue of police use of force against African-Americans and other minorities. It began with his kneeling protests during the playing of the national anthem before NFL games and continued in other ways after he left the league.

    Earlier this year, Kaepernick reached a settlement with the NFL after being unable to get a job with another team since leaving the 49ers.

    This week, the former quarterback made headlines for opposing the so-called Betsy Ross flag added to a new design of Nike sneakers, viewing the flag as a reminder of slavery.

    The apparel company agreed to halt sales of the sneaker after Kaepernick’s complaint, “based on concerns that it could unintentionally offend” people. Kaepernick has been an endorser of Nike products.

    Others have argued that the 13-starred Betsy Ross flag is symbolic of America’s fight for independence from Britain, and is separate from the slavery issue.

    Cruz was one of several top Republicans to oppose Nike's decision to end sales of the sneakers.

    Senator Cruz, would you offer the same advice to your friend, the "President" of the United States? You know, the same guy who STILL believes that the Central Park Five are guilty? The same guy who puts CHILDREN in these places even I wouldn't wish upon my best friend or worst enemy? Before you offer context on any related to Black or even Brown, check your White privilege at the door... and while you're at it, surgically remove your lips from the Orange ignoramus who only knows one book: his own.

    Just Saying.
