Kaepernick Gets Tampa Mural And Billboard, Thanks To Ben & Jerry’s

Videos by OutKick

We used to celebrate civil rights heroes with murals and billboards, but now Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream celebrates Colin Kaepernick because he “knows his rights.” They made sure the former quarterback got attention by plastering his face all over Tampa, in case his $10 million settlement wasn’t enough.

Man, this generation’s bar for heroics is low.

This is nothing more than a poor example for our children. Instead of doing something that sacrifices their own safety like Rosa Parks did in Alabama, our current millionaire heroes wear t-shirts and tweet.

Kaepernick decided to take a knee only because he was playing ghastly football and was on his way out the league. His girlfriend and agency also had to give him their permission first. Kaepernick never kneeled during the height of his Super Bowl run with the San Francisco 49ers, just when the ice melted in his soda.

It’s a shame that our youth have to sift through propaganda like these billboards and murals to learn the truth, that rich athletes hardly ever have the common man’s best interest at heart. So we’d like to send a special shoutout to Ben & Jerry’s for polluting the streets of Tampa at a time when we could use more actual sports talk.

Apparently getting Trump out of office didn’t solve all their problems like they said it would.

  1. “Kaepernick never kneeled during the height of his Super Bowl run with the San Francisco 49ers, just when the ice melted in his soda.”

    Gary we’re here *Fingers to eyes motion*. I’ve been saying this ever since he decided to trade in his pet tortoise for a pick and an afro. If you look up the word “charlatan” in the dictionary, you’ll see Colin Rand doing his weak-ass fist raising pose with that succubus Nessa. And as I always love to do, here’s the article where KNBR broke down why he got benched for BLAINE. GABBERT. only they took it down when he “woke” up…but the internet is forever: https://web.archive.org/web/20170922021856/http://www.knbr.com/2015/11/03/how-colin-kaepernick-lost-his-job/

  2. Gary, well said. Millionaire athletes don’t care about poor people in inner cities. Neither do Ben and Jerry. Ben and Jerry are typical white liberal millionaires who only care about their own notoriety. As if the billboard they put up advertising their own ice cream is going to help anyone. (same as that RobinHood App, which had previously advertised itself as being in support Ju$tice and of actual black lives. Turned out it really only cared about millionaires on wall street)

    • That would be a complete and total shame BleedMaizeand Blue. You are right about that. When I go pick up some groceries this weekend it will definitely be a shame if I add up my cash and realize I don’t have enough for nuggety-whirled-shit, or whatever they call Kap’s ice cream, and I have to leave it in the aisle to melt.

  3. Ben & Jerry’s treat blacks like their special needs children who need protection from the mean school bullies (i.e. American society/police/white people), while selling their over-hyped (ad over-priced) ice cream to virtue-signaling white liberals. It is comedy of the highest order.

  4. Yup. I steer clear of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. It’s not their political opinions themselves that turn me off, though I disagree vehemently. I now worry people from that worldview would spit in (or worse) the ice cream they ship to “fly over country”. They utterly despise us. That’s the reputation of the leftist crowd now. Wacko, screaming at the sky, irrational, nutjobs who can’t have a civil conversation based in reality…and likely possess ANTIFA literature. They have ZERO tolerance of anyone who disagrees, and I frankly don’t trust people like that for a second. I get the vibe they’d not slow down if they saw a conservative crossing a crosswalk. You know, that level crazy? Irrational people who lash out threatening and silencing those who disagree with them don’t strike me as conscientious, integrity filled, food preppers. The two don’t go together. Nah, I’ll eat Purity or Blue Bell, thanks. Go paint another mural of a hypocrite commie who hates America.

  5. I feel like we are living in the Twilight Zone. What is up is down and down is up. So much about the woke crowd makes zero sense and lacks reasonableness and logic. Here we have a black man who was adopted by a white family because you know racism, who attended college for free because you know racism, went on to play in the NFL because of you know racism, was benched for playing poorly because of you know racism, wanted attention because he was benched because of you know racism, turned down job opportunities because of you know racism, settled his oh so important law suit because of you know racism, signs a deal with Disney to have a show about his “struggle” because of racism. How are we supposed to take this clown seriously?
