The Bigot’s Answer to Everything: Fire.

A bunch of bigots have decided that it’s necessary to set fire to their Kaepernick Jerseys in a dandy show of hatred, over Colin’s unfathomable concern for People of Colour. This is just one, there’s more at Buzzfeed.

    I’m not the sort to wear a jersey (plus, I’m a Browns fan), but I might just have to by a Kaepernick one just out of principle.

    Hmmm. I read the title as metaphorical, and it rang true. As in: if I can’t have it, then burn it down! There seems to be a big element of male entitlement and a sense of ownership in bigotry, as in: this is MY country, MY job, MY woman, MY neighborhood that THOSE people are taking away from me.

    It’s the abuser who says “If I can’t have her, no one can”, before he murders her and commits suicide.
    It’s the combination of selfishness/lack of empathy/joyful anger-wallowing/desire to cause pain, even at the expense to self that seems to echo all the patriachal entitled men who came out on the losing side.

    Ten to one (warning, it’s a sucker bet!) that if you looked on the FB pages of these asshats, you’d find plenty of ‘disrespect’ for our current POTUS. But I’m sure that’s totally different (because he’s black too!!)…..
