Stephen Colbert Makes The Connection: Kaepernick Is About Charlotte

Colbert does what the mainstream media seem unable to do, again.

Carolina native Stephen Colbert made connections those in the mainstream media seem unable to make.

Colbert mused on what kind of reaction would be appropriate to the police shooting and resulting protests in Charlotte.

I just wish there was some sort of respectful, silent, civil protest that people could engage in that wouldn't enrage the other side.

And then he showed a picture of Colin Kaepernick.

Is it so hard to see that Colin Kaepernick's taking the knee during the National Anthem is a direct protest of the kind of violence and injustice on display in Charlotte?

Not when a large chunk of the American electorate sees their spiritual, political and moral guidance from "Civil Rights leader the Reverend Dr. Donald Trump."

Seriously, when you heard that joke, did you laugh or cry?
