‘Kaepernick, I reject your seemingly misplaced hate for America.’ We are the most equitable, charitable and just nation on Earth.

It’s difficult for me to understand the contempt and hate from those on the left, along with others, for America. Most of these people are not immigrants who sacrificed everything to get to America but are young American born citizens, whose concept of our nation is deeply flawed.

Colin Kaepernick is one of them. He appears to have a deep disdain for America that he just can’t seem to shake. Still, it is this very nation that has allowed Kaepernick to amass allegedly more than $20 million for basically playing football.

He is actually in the top one percent of some of the wealthiest people on the planet. As of today, he never has to worry about where his next meal will come from and healthcare isn’t a problem.

For so many people, those goals are simply unattainable. They live in nations where the individual isn’t honored, corruption runs deep and liberty is only a fleeting thought.

I reject Kaepernick’s seemingly misplaced hate for America.

On July 4th, Kaepernick shared a video on Twitter. He said in his Tweet that America’s Independence Day is “a celebration of white supremacy.”

He is entitled to his opinion but it’s filled with hypocrisy.

The video was of actor James Earl Jones reciting Fredrick Douglas’s historical speech, “What To The Slave Is The Fourth of July.” It is a remarkable poem that evokes the sadness and horror of our past.

It is a past that we should never forget and never repeat.

Everyday I’m reminded of our nation’s bloody civil war. In Alexandria, Virginia the past is blended with the present and I imagine as I walk through the parks, in Old Town and along some of the cities oldest cobblestone streets that the blood spilt for the Union was not in vain and it fundamentally changed our nation.

We are not defined by our past but by our present and future. For the most part, as a society we have condemned racism in all its forms and have fought for justice throughout our history. That is something we should be proud of.

Why should we take from our ancestors the great sacrifices made to free our nation? Their legacy, sacrifice led to a point in our present where women could vote, slavery was abolished, children’s rights are protected and justice is a concept that is fought for daily.

Kaepernick – along with others like him – want you to be believe that the present must be judged by the actions of people and a society that we never knew. It’s impossible to reconcile the two. There is nothing anyone can do to change the past but learn from it.

Don’t fall for the marxist ideology poisoning our society today. Nothing good comes from tearing down a world so many people scarified so much for.

Yes, we should never forget the horrors of our past but similarly, we must never forget the great men and women who sacrificed so much to make us one the most equitable, charitable and just nations on earth.

Nevada Man Indicted in Killing of Rapper Tupac Shakur

In a significant development in the long-standing mystery surrounding the murder of iconic rapper Tupac Shakur, Duane “Keffe D” Davis, a Nevada man, has been indicted on a charge of murder with the use of a deadly weapon. The indictment was officially announced by prosecutors during a court proceeding on Friday.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo disclosed that a grand jury had been convened to investigate the case for several months and that Davis, described as the “on-ground, on-site commander,” had allegedly “ordered the death” of Shakur.

The charges against Davis were unveiled just hours after his arrest while he was on a walk near his residence, according to DiGiacomo. It is worth noting that Davis has been a known figure to investigators.

According to reports, Davis had previously admitted, both in interviews and in his 2019 tell-all memoir titled “Compton Street Legend,” that he was present in the Cadillac during the fatal drive-by shooting of Tupac Shakur in September 1996.

Authorities took action on July 17, raiding the home of the suspect’s wife in Nevada. Video footage from the operation shows law enforcement officers instructing Davis to come out of the residence with his hands raised.

According to reports from Fox News, the search yielded various items, including a Pokeball USB drive, an iPhone, iPads, laptops, a tablet, a desktop computer, external hard drives, copies of Davis’ book “Compton Street Legends,” a Vibe magazine featuring Shakur, and two containers filled with photographs. Additionally, law enforcement sought “notes, writings, ledgers, and other handwritten or typed documents” related to Shakur’s murder.

Tupac Shakur’s murder has remained a high-profile cold case for decades. The prime suspect, Orlando Anderson, who was Davis’ nephew, had previously denied involvement in the shooting before he was murdered in Compton, California, in 1998.

On the fateful evening of September 7, 1996, tragedy struck as Tupac Shakur fell victim to a fatal drive-by shooting. Riding as a passenger in the black BMW owned by Death Row Records co-founder Marion “Suge” Knight, Tupac’s life was abruptly cut short when a white Cadillac pulled up alongside them at a traffic light.

This harrowing event, as detailed by Duane “Keffe D” Davis in a 2018 documentary, revealed that all occupants in the Cadillac that night were affiliated with the South Side Compton Crips gang. Shockingly, it was alleged that the gang sought retribution against Shakur, who had reportedly engaged in a physical altercation with one of its members just prior to the tragic shooting.

Tupac Shakur’s profound influence on the rap community, a legacy that would reverberate for years to come, cannot be overstated. Beyond his lyrical prowess and charismatic stage presence, Tupac’s music and message resonated deeply with a generation. He became a voice for his community, tackling pressing issues in his lyrics and interviews.

Moreover, his authenticity, unflinching honesty, and commitment to addressing the challenges faced by his community cemented his status as an enduring icon in the world of hip-hop. Even in death, Tupac’s impact on the genre and his ability to inspire change in society at large continue to be felt, leaving an indelible mark on the rap community for generations to come.

Tupac Shakur, a prolific rapper and influential figure in the hip-hop industry, was only 25 years old at the time of his death. His fourth solo album, “All Eyez on Me,” continued to dominate the charts with approximately 5 million copies sold, underscoring the enduring impact of his music and the ongoing intrigue surrounding his untimely demise.
