Former NFL quarterback turned controversial team-left activist Colin Kaepernick wants to get rid of all police departments and prisons in the United States, according to his new book.
“In order to eradicate anti-Blackness, we must also abolish the police,” the thesis of the book reads. The book, titled “Abolition for the People: The Movement for a Future Without Policing & Prisons,” is a collection of 30 essays, one of which is written by the former San Francisco 49ers starter.
“The omnipresent threat of premature death at the hands, knees, chokeholds, tasers, and guns of law enforcement has only further engrained its anti-Black foundation into the institutions of policing,” he writes. “In order to eradicate anti-Blackness, we must also abolish the police. The abolition of one without the other is impossible.”
Perhaps he should give up all of his security and access to police first, then make egregious calls like those aforementioned.
Citing a person familiar with the book, TMZ said Kaepernick wants to start a conversation with readers about reimagining how communities can be safe “without a militarized police presence,” BizPacReview reports.
Kaepernick last played on the field in 2016. He was the first professional athlete to disrespectfully take a knee during the national anthem in protest encouraging other athletes to do the same.
The act has been scrutinized as the ultimate disrespect to our country and while some supported the move, many canceled him altogether.
Kaepernick isn’t the only professional athlete to speak out against the police.
As reported by Human Events News, basketball star LeBron James has been extremely vocal with his anti-police sentiment. James faced serious backlash after he tweeted a picture of a police officer present at the Ma’Khia Bryant shooting with the caption “you’re next.”
Though he has since deleted the tweet, a screenshot is still circulating.

Hey Colin, you suffer from “anti – blackness” because you want the police defunded and as a result of defunding the police, their will be more “black on black” murders in the inner cities. Black on black murders and crime in the inner cities are “pandemic” even with the police. With no police in the inner cities, innocent black civilians will be killed off, so you Colin, suffer from the disease called “anti -blackness”. Contact Dr. Fauci, maybe he can make a vaccine for your anti -blackness disease that you suffer from.
‘To Eradicate Anti-Blackness’…………. Huh?
I.A.W. U.S. Census & FBI (Table 43a)
Black males make up about 6% of the U.S. population but every year commit ~53% of all the murders and ~55% of all robberies in the U.S… Every year in the U.S. there are ~5,000 African-Americans men, women and children killed and 93% of them were killed by fellow African-Americans.
Black Lives Matter to whom???
Where is the outrage from “Black Lives Matter” and prominent members of the African-American community? Where are the words of condemnation and sorrow from “Black Lives Matter”, Obama, Al Sharpton, or Jesse Jackson over the fact that members of their own race are summarily executing each other?
How many bodies do you have to step over to get to the one that you think is important only because a White police officer was involved?
Democrats have an anti white, anti Amercia agenda.
It seems they’ve had that agenda for decades.
He is proof why we need to defund welfare. Go to a one child only policy.
BETTER YET, go to a NO CHILD policy, UNLESS YOU EARN enough from your working, TO PAY FOR YOUR OWN bloody kids!
Colin, do you still wear diapers? Actually, we are more interested in abolishing “protesters” who are always whining and throwing entitlement tantrums in order to eradicate anti-Americanism. Put on your Betsy Ross Nikes and shut the hell up.
I’d like to abolish LIBTARDS.. From the entire human race, not just from America.
Let down by his black parents and raised by whites, this is the most ungrateful SOB I have ever seen. He, like Obama, could have used their experience of mixed race families to try and bring people together, but nope. And perhaps other people/races should have a bit of input as to whether we want to keep the police. As it is right now, everyone else needs to shut up because less than 13% of the population can’t cope. Trust me, the police would shoot at me if I refused to comply. People are raising kids so afraid of the police that their own fear gets them killed! Take a look at the many reasons why you and they are the target of police…and then do something productive as in educating the youth on respect and being lawful. I was raised poor but certainly my parents made sure there were consequences to my actions and gave me a solid, moral foundation. Use your fame and money to educate and uplift, stop being the anti everything, anti white, anti American role model. You will get more people killed.
This bigoted jerk is a born-again racist with too much privilege and too much money. What a slimy pig. And worse he has a large corporate pay check and a big mouth microphone too spew his poison.
Colin really hates black people.
Colin likes money and attention.
Defund stupid, low-talent sports figures to end their ignorant public announcements.
“Famous” people are no more gifted in wisdom than us “ordinary” people who drive trucks, run manufacturing equipment, and do office work.
AND one wonders, HOW MANY FORMER cops, do they have hired as private security guards??
How about abolishing the NFL to eradicate all the Kaepernicks…
I have an idea. Let’s eliminate police and ban private security in Labron’s and Kaepernick’s neighborhood. Then make a public announcement that no police will go to those neighborhoods. Let’s see how that works out for them and their families. Maybe they would get a taste of what they want to impose on the rest of us.
That is something i’ve been saying for years.
ALL THESE SPORTS nuts, politicians and wokist hollywood types, who demand WE LOSE OUR RIGHTS to guns/police protection, should THEMSELVES LOSE ANY RIGHT To have any form of armed security protecting them… EVEN IF THEY PAY FOR IT themselves.
Oh, yes. The EX football player. Golly he’s been out longer than he was ever in.
To rid the US of “anti-blackness” eliminate the “black crime” against blacks and whites
Don’t forget all the black on asian crime!
Thought that he moved to China?!? It’s much safer there for him.
