“SUNNY”, CAPITALISM VS. DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN FOOTBALL, AND UNARMED AFRICAN AMERICANS BEING SHOT AND KILLED BY WHITE AMERICAN POLICE IN EPIDEMIC PROPORTION!

Today, I was watching the “View”; I like to hear intelligent women debate politics whether I agree of not. On this occasion, I disagreed with a beautiful woman, “Sunny” Hoskins, though on this occasion she appeared more “stormy” than “sunny”!


“SUNNY”

Asunción Cummings “Sunny” Hostin (born Asunción Cummings; October 20, 1968) is an American lawyer, columnist, social commentator, and multi-platform journalist. Hostin is the Senior Legal Correspondent and Analyst for ABC News as well as a co-host on ABC’s morning talk show The View.


THE VIEW

Today the subject was NFL football player, Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick is African and “was” a major league football quarterback, who was moved to protest so many unarmed African men, being killed by Caucasian police throughout America. He would kneel while the national anthem was being played. He hasn’t been employed as quarterback for a professional football team since.


COLON KAEPERNICK

Kaepernick was first supported by one of the view, and then “Sunny” Hoskins tore into Kaepernick, for his kneeling. “Sunny” said that though Kaepernick had a U.S. Constitutional Right to kneel, his first concern as an American employee was to listen to team ownership’s disciplinary objection to Kaepernich’s kneeling, because it discourages fans from buying tickets and causes loss of profits to corporate owners. “Sunny” concluded that Kaepernich was wrong to kneel!

Oh yes, “Sunny” is also a lawyer.

My interpretation of Sunny’s objection to Kaepernich’s kneeling is that Kaepernich’s Constitutional Rights to protest is of lesser value than professional football team’s “Capitalistic” corporate American profits; corporate football team profits are more important than African American’s men’s lives, being taken by Caucasian police officers at an epidemic rate. This made me very sick at my stomach.

The fact that American “President” Donald Trump agrees with Hostin, also entered my mind. Actually, I fear for American democracy!

“Sunny” Hostin fueled my distress of seeing my American democracy, disappearing; and fascist capitalism taking over the land of “the free and the brave”. Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race and stands for a centralized autocratic often militaristic government.”

God help America; America needs help!
