    Is Colin Kaepernick’s protest really just an issue of identity crisis? (srs)

    You hear a lot about mixed race people who are half black, half white finding themselves in the middle when it comes to the topic of racial tension/conflict in America. My stepdad who was half black half white said the same thing. At times, they don’t feel as if they’re “black enough” around black people and not “white enough” around white people. I think this is exactly the case with Kaepernick. He’s half black, half white, was adopted by a white family and probably always felt like he stood out. Like he never quite fit in. Wondering why he had to be the one who was always different from the family that adopted him.

    All this built up confusion, lack of fitting in, etc reached a boiling point and created a perfect storm to where it just erupted the day he took a knee. Along with his frustration over being benched, which further exacerbated his life-long struggle of not belonging, he made a calculated effort to do something that would finally make him feel embraced by society on a level he never felt his entire life. And it worked. He’s become addicted to the attention he never received from his biological parents who abandoned him. Along with the African American community seeing him as some kind of modern day Rosa Parks. This whole thing was a long time coming and it’s funny to me that a guy like this became the face for black oppression.

    This guy is half white and grew up in the safe suburbs with a white family. He didn’t grow up hard, lol. He’s lived a more privileged life than most blacks people. Hell, maybe even more than most white people. That’s what this whole thing is really about and it’s sad that he successfully used social justice as a coping mechanism for his identity crisis. Now he’s got the black community on his side, he’s got the afro grown out, became an icon for Nike, etc. he finally found his identity after all these years. And nobody brings this up. It’s so painfully obvious this is the case.

    Youre thinking way too much. It's easier to be a victim and capitalize on it than going back to playing in the NFL and exposing that you aren't good enough.

    Apparently he has given a lot of $$$ to charities over the years, so on that side of the fence I like him.
    But then he seems like a pompous, narcissistic twat in every other way. I heard he got interviewed by some magazine, but refused to speak and brought people to speak for him while he sat there in smug silence.

    I honestly think he just did something for a good reason / good cause and the media made him into this hero he probably didn't want to be but he assumed the role.

    I got a female friend that is biracial but was raised by two white parents. She doesn't have identity issues but she has discussed with me that she wish she knew more black folks but she feels like she also connects and gets along with white people more. I'm sure it's hard for some of them in terms of identity.

    Pretty much this. The media and bigots were the people constantly bringing it up after it happened.

    This whole thing only started after he started dating his "political activist" girlfriend. He's just a pawn, like most of these celebrities who are famous for being the face behind some "cause".

    And the OP is right; this is a very common issue that black/white biracial people face. He is never going to be able to identify as "white", so what happens is that these people try to play up their black identity for acceptance within that community, because other blacks hold animosity against them as well.
