FUCK A WIN II. From [HERE] If you wanted final proof that Colin Kaepernick is not going to get another shot in the NFL, the Redskins probably just gave it to you. Despite sitting at 6-6 and grasping for air as they sink into the deep end of the playoff race after losing their second quarterback to a broken leg, the Redskins are not interested in signing the former standout quarterback.
Washington is in dire straights right now, having lost first Alex Smith to a broken leg and then Colt McCoy -- also to a broken leg -- on Monday night. The result is starting Mark Sanchez, who looked OK (kind of?) against the Eagles despite signing with the Redskins just a few days prior.
Asked about Kaepernick, Gruden said the team talked about him but is going in a "different direction."
49ers cornerback Richard Sherman said, “There’s not enough public pressure. There’s nothing that’s going to force a team to [sign him], like Washington who’s in the playoff hunt,” said Sherman, who played for the NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks during Kaepernick’s six seasons in San Francisco. “At first, it was like, ‘Colin Kaepernick’s stats weren’t good enough,’ or, ‘He stopped playing at a high level.’ And then you see some of the quarterbacks that they picked up and you’re like, well, if you’re picking up Mark Sanchez, he’s had some up and down years. Colt McCoy’s the same way. They’ve had up and down years, and Colin has played at a higher level than I would say any of those guys ever performed at the peak of their careers.
“You start to see stuff like that, and it’s almost like teams are purposely making it obvious that they’re freezing him out,” Sherman said. “Unfortunately there has, to this point, been nothing that the courts or the league has done about it, and that’s the disappointing part, because he’s a good football player. He didn’t commit a crime. He didn’t put his hands on anybody, murder anybody, you know, do anything that’s that insanely crazy that he deserves to be banned from our football league.” [MORE]
Kaepernick has led the 49ers to a Super Bowl and two NFC championship games and he threw 16 touchdown passes with four interceptions for them in the last season he played. [MORE]
CBS Sports said “So people want to know why Washington, a team on the verge of making the playoffs, wouldn't exercise every possible opportunity to sign a quarterback who could potentially help them when they're willing to claim a guy who won't be able to help them (he can't play right now) with possible legal charges pending. It's a fair question. People want answers. [MORE]
Like so many other teams the Redskins also passed over Kaepernick - b/c winning is not everything in the NFL. It is secondary to the system of racism/white supremacy, a global, white over Black system of vast unequal conditions & unequal power that functions in all areas of people activity, including sports & entertainment. Racism is not merely a pattern of individual and/or institutional practice; it is a universal operating "system" of white supremacy and domination in which the majority of the world's white people participate.

Racism White Supremacy - psychopathic degeneracy. 2) "The local and global power system and dynamic, structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined, which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action and emotional response, as conducted simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labour, law, politics, religion, sex and war); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survival and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet earth—a planet upon which the vast majority of people are classified as non-white (Black, Brown, Red and Yellow) by white skinned people, and all of the nonwhite people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin coloration) compared to the genetic recessive white skin people." -Dr. Francis Cress Welsing, MD. Hate and oppression can never reign. Only love is supreme.
People who classify themselves as White, who wish to be taken seriously, and who are righteous and responsible, will only talk about ending White Supremacy (Racism) and replacing it with Justice. [MORE]
