On the Fourth of July 2019, millionaire African-American Nike brand ambassador and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a pre-Civil War quote by Frederick Douglass, accompanied by a graphic video, that attacks the United States as the worst nation in the history of the world.
The one-minute long video contains images of slavery, the KKK, lynchings and police abuse of African-Americans with a voice-over reading from Douglass’ 1852 speech on slavery and the Fourth of July.
“What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.” – Frederick Douglass

Douglass’ speech, known as “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” was given in Rochester, New York on July 5, 1852. A decade later a massive civil war was being fought that ended with slaves being freed at the cost of hundreds of thousands of American lives.
Kaeperick skipped that part. He is eternally bitter for his American born privilege.
Earlier this week Nike pulled its Betsy Ross flag themed shoes after a complaint from Kaepernick, a move that has support from several Democratic Party presidential candidates.
