[UPDATED] Ryan Rose Cancels GQ Subscription And Blocks Colin Kaepernick On Twitter Over Magazine’s “Citizen Of The Year” Cover

ryanrose1This story has been updated below.

Ryan Rose made some great points last year when he spoke out against Donald Trump and announced that he’d be supporting Hillary Clinton, but some might not agree with his opinion of former NFL player Colin Kaepernik, which he made known today via a series of tweets.

First, he announced that he’d be canceling his subscription to GQ, which put Kaepernik on the cover this month and named him their “Citizen Of The Year”:

On the one hand, GQ’s “Citizen Of The Year” isn’t an actual award, but on the other hand, anything that brings more attention to what Kaepernik is actually protesting—racial inequality and police brutality of blacks and other minorities—is always great.

Ryan Rose, however, takes issue with Kaepernik’s method of protesting the National Anthem, as the song is a symbol of his military service, and he proceeded to block him and GQ on Twitter:

ry2 ry3 ry4Ryan Rose’s military service should be honored, so I respect his opinion here. And, I think his opinion is based solely on his pride in his military service. Kaepernik’s protest of the anthem, however, isn’t a protest of veterans or of anyone’s military service—it’s a protest of the corrupt American criminal justice system that has seen thousands of minorities wrongfully incarcerated, if not murdered by police. But, Ryan Rose sees the protest differently, as he feels it applies directly to his service in the military. There are many veterans who share in Ryan’s beliefs, but there are many veterans who actually support Kaepernik.

For his part, Ryan Rose did acknowledge that one of his fans, who disagreed with him, had the right to his opinion. So, presumably, he’d say that Kaepernik obviously has the right to his opinion and his protest as well.

ry5 ry6UPDATE:

Ryan Rose has responded to clarify that he does not disagree with Kaepernik’s beliefs, but that he does disagree with the way in which Kaepernik is protesting. He writes:

It is my personal opinion and right to disagree with the method he used to protest the wrongful and unjust incarceration, police brutality, and racial profiling directed towards minorities. I disagree with his method NOT the cause. I fully support the equality of every race, religion, and sex. Not that I feel I have to justify my actions but from my knowledge I am the only person in my profession to take a stand and put my career on the line publicly to keep racist/bigots off the sets of our studios. It was ingrained in me throughout my military service you can either sit there and complain or or you can get off your ass and my a difference and I feel that’s exactly what I have done. Again I disagree with his method of protest NOT what he was protesting.

As noted up above, Ryan Rose is proud of his service in the military, so his disagreement with the form of the protest is understandable and respectable, even if you also happen to support Kaepernik’s protest (which I do).

      Fair treatment of a race? Hush child. This entire BLM/police brutality movement is nothing but unfounded paranoia. Some black people genuinely claim to be fearful for their lives when they see a cop. That insanity is the result of this false narrative.

      It reminds me of people who are absolutely petrified of flying, meanwhile they drink/text and drive regularly without a thought. Their fears are unfounded and the result of ignorance, much like the BLM hysteria. Black people are 13% of the population and commit 53% of homicides. A black man shouldn’t be worried about the police.

      • moondoggy

        Some nuance would be helpful here. You make _some_ valid points, but that does not make people who are concerned about unchecked police power hysterical. Terror attacks are rare, but that doesn’t mean that it’s unfounded and ignorant to engage in dialogue about how to curtail it.

        Yeah, they have none whatsoever., You’r even dumber than the buck toothed overrated dick-tard Ryan Rose. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dcf5dff4bc7836b89316b6ef91bee43c926a198b76204ee3fbbf24fabac90ef6.jpg

        What do you say to the children who were shot or shot at by police? How do you confuse a adolescent with an adult? No one should die while being ascertained, or in police custody. Period. They are not the jury. Period.

        You are on the wrong side of history, and your disqus comments will be documentation of the false narratives YOU have been taught and that YOU choose to perpetuate.

        Also, read your statistics and report them accurately. Being arrested for a homicide is not the same as being convicted.

      • Izzy

        I typed out nearly 1000 words explaining how your comment was juvenile, patronizing, and simply not well considered. But then I realized that all of those words would be wasted on a person with your lack of empathy and ability to understand complicated situations. In the year of our lord 2017, i’m learning not to waste time on people of your ilk. So…Go Fuck Yourself.

        • WyattTF

          I would have loved to see your moronic screed so I could provide data proving it is utterly false and illogical.

          • Izzy

            Doubtful. That would have involved critical thinking and an honest assessment of the world around you. Insults aside, would you answer a few questions? I am genuinely curious about how you’d answer these.
            1) When did racism in America end?
            2) Do you believe that Black people are more violent and prone to criminality?
            3) Specific Situation: Explain why ‘Stop and Frisk’ targeted Black people at a 5x higher rate than white people yet Blacks were half as likely to be found with a weapon?

      • Maximus

        Don’t cite statistics as if you know what they mean. Your ignorance is exhausting, as is your thinly veiled racism.

  • sxg

    I guess Ryan Rose doesn’t realize that blocking 2 twitter accounts that have never interacted with him doesn’t count for anything. That’s like a crazy bitch breaking up with a celebrity they never dated.

    This doesn’t surprise me at all. If he were really patriotic, then he would stand by Colin Kapernick’s right to peacefully protest. But no, much like hundreds of thousands of other inbred assholes who have never served themselves upset at Kapernick, this is more about their white privilege than actually being their for our troops and vets.

    Let’s not forget just because Ryan Rose didn’t vote for the Republican nominee in this election, it doesn’t mean he stopped being a Republican. Romney was very much as anti-LGBT as the current administration, but that didn’t stop him from voting for him in 2012. This asshole is still the gun-loving liberal-hating log cabin republican we should all boycott and demand that Raging Falcon House drop him as an exclusive.

    And just because he fucks light-skinned black guys and is “friends” with a bipolar near-geriatric aged black man who no one wants to work with anymore doesn’t mean he actually gives a shit about the black community and the oppression they have faced for centuries, and the current genuine problems they go through today.

    I don’t give a fuck if Ryan Rose did serve in the military. He is a piece of shit human being who has physically assaulted his past boyfriend(s) and never received proper punishment and rehabilitation for his actions. So fuck you Ryan Rose and fuck off from the industry and go work as a sloppy bottom for all the closeted assholes at FOX “News.” It’s a better fit for you.

    Colin did an honorable thing. Ryan served and that is a brave thing to do. They both say stupid things occasionally. I’m over it.

  • Baradude
  • DumDumBonerMaker

    The reason Kaepernick kneels during his protest – as opposed to just sitting on the bench like he first did – is to show respect for military members.

    Kaepernick met with former Green Beret+football player named Nate Boyer because Boyer wanted to discuss how his sitting out the anthem might make service members feel disrespected – and the Green Beret suggested kneeling as a show of respect to military because soldiers take a knee at a fallen soldier’s grave and during some other solemn events.

    TLDR: The kneeling is specifically a show of respect to the military.

    Here’s an article about it: http://cbsprt.co/2whP71E

    • Zealot

      Thanks for stating something that gets lost in the discussion about Kaepernick’s protest (which unless I’m mistaken, he’s never asked or urged others to join with him in so doing). And unlike RR, I don’t believe Colin has ever physically assaulted the person with whom he’s intimately associated. As far as I’m concerned RR has no moral high ground here, and I’d go further to speculate that he’s just using the GQ cover to drum up publicity for himself.

      • GATXER

        Yet Kaepernick’s said this:

        “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

        But believe hes kneeing to show respect for the Vets….look like a complete fool.

        • Xzamilloh

          I’m going to believe Nate Boyer and Colin Kaepernick over you, that’s for damn sure.

          • GATXER

            Yet all I posted was Kaepernick own words……..believe what you want…I could care less…….but hes NOT doing it to respect the vets. Idiots think Trump loves the vets also…..just as wrong as you are.

            again:
            “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,”

            Where was the support for the vets then????????

          • Xzamilloh

            You think kneeling for the flag is disrespecting vets? No, it’s him asserting the first amendment rights those vets fought and died for, not the damn flag. Black servicemen and women are a part of those “vets” and the police system he’s protesting, and while I don’t completely agree with his narrative, I fully support his right to peacefully protest, and so does Nate Boyer, who advised him on kneeling instead of sitting.

            And I say that as a veteran. Nothing he said was disrespectful to veterans… he believes that the American system is oppressive, and while I don’t agree with that narrative, I agree that change is needed. Can’t wait for Binary Honey Boo Boo Child to say something stupid

          • Zealot

            Thanks Xzamilloh. Just simply thanks, so much.

          • Xzamilloh

            I don’t even mean to bring any attention to the fact that I was in the Army, but it’s annoying when people so opposed to his protest forget that it’s the freedom to protest and to stomp on the flag (not that he did or is) that my fellow servicemen are fighting for and died for, and that’s the kind of country we should strive to live in, not one that forces you to adhere to a national anthem… that’s fascism

        • Zealot

          I don’t see your point. I’ve always understood that was his position. And he has a right to express it how he sees fit. Just as it’s RR’s right to cancel his GQ subscription and whatever else. But Ryan can’t claim his righteous ire is about Kaepernick’s disrespect toward veterans…because it’s not. Your quote just underscores that.

          • Xzamilloh

            Exactly. Kaepernick makes it very clear why he’s protesting and nothing in that so-called damning quote comes close to disrespecting soldiers, current or vets. My fellow vets can feel the way they feel, and I don’t agree with the entirety of his stance, but his protest has been peaceful, and it’s still not enough for some of them

          • GATXER

            Well I don’t see any support for vets in his original statement only after the outcry. You buy that I don’t. As a vet I feel hes disrespecting the Flag and us veterans, sorry you cant see that. Frankly I don’t really care about what Kaepernick does. It more the fact that GQ pick is about the nuttiest thing Ive seen since Time made Trump person of the year.

        • DumDumBonerMaker

          Kaepernick said this:
          — “I have great respect for the men and women that have fought for this country. I have family, I have friends that have gone and fought for this country. And they fight for freedom, they fight for the people, they fight for liberty and justice, for everyone. That’s not happening. People are dying in vain because this country isn’t holding their end of the bargain up, as far as giving freedom and justice, liberty to everybody. That’s something that’s not happening. I’ve seen videos, I’ve seen circumstances where men and women that have been in the military have come back and been treated unjustly by the country they have fought for, and have been murdered by the country they fought for, on our land. That’s not right.” —

          Seems like there’s plenty of respect for service members right there to me.

          AND – His protest was originally him just sitting on the bench during the anthem – He did that for 3 games (and nobody noticed or made a fuss). A photographer saw him and snapped a pic that got published – and that is what caused people to question what was going on.
          That’s when Boyer (the Green Beret) contacted him and Kap agreed to met up to talk about it — That’s pretty respectful, I’d say.
          So, then Kaepernick changes his protest to kneeling at the request of a former military member — That’s also a pretty respectful action as well.

          Sure, he didn’t have vets or service members in mind when he first decided on the protest but I don’t see that as ‘disrespecting them’ – I see it as he just was naive about the perspective of military people regarding the flag/anthem – and then when he allowed himself to be educated about it, he changed his actions — Again, that’s respectful.

          If you want to make Kaepernick and others’ actions something other than what they are, that’s on you – because they and many others have explained this clearly MANY times in MANY venues.

    • TrueWords
  • Deviancy Behavir

    So on one hand he’s talking about being a veteran and serving his country for people to be able to express themselves freely, but he’s pissed off that Kap is doing what he fought for, am I getting that correctly? What a hypocrite. And for some context I didn’t agree when Kap talked about how he didn’t vote because both choices were bad, that mindset is how we got tRump in office. But, Rose is a fool of his own making and his blocking of Kap and GQ didn’t do shit in the end.

  • Green4clover

  • Sed

    I’m really sad that I can’t boycott Herr Rose as I’ve never found him appealing and don’t watch his scenes. I do find it funny that again we have a white man angry that a black man is protesting a song that is inherently racist. Perhaps Ryan should read that 3rd stanza. If someone got mad at you for not eating a pie they made that was 1/3 shit, you think they were crazy.

    I bet Ryan Rose doesn’t even know why Colin Kaepernick is protesting and more importantly doesn’t care. He’s just another racist, reactionary, moron who only cares about his white male privilege.

    • Sebastian S

      I agree with a lot of that…however, he’s not protesting the national anthem. He’s protesting during the national anthem.

  • Glenn Moore

    How about the fact that the Pentagon paid the NFL several million dollars to have they players on the field prior to the national anthem. And let’s not forget the national anthem isn’t the pure song we thought it was, the third stanza were don’t sing.

  • Scrapple

    The day I look to Ryan Rose for socially acceptable behavior is the day I’ve lost all control of my mental faculties. What Colin is doing is disrespectful to your military service? But all the times you were in public acting like a drunken stumblebum wasn’t? Going on social media and making a video where you wiped your ass with hundred dollar bills wasn’t? Harassing Alexander Gustavo on social media wasn’t? Beating up your boyfriend wasn’t?

    What’s interesting about the anthem protest is how these detractors want to focus on the kneeling aspect while conveniently ignoring the reason behind the act in the first place. They don’t want to have that conversation, so they choose to focus on the method rather than the motivation. And since when did kneeling become such a terrible thing? Kneeling is done in front of religious leaders and monarchs. People kneel in church. They kneel in front of coffins. They kneel when they’re being knighted. They kneel when they’re proposing to a loved one. “Take a knee” was a thing long before Colin showed up. It can be a sign of reverence, love, humility and proof that you are listening to someone who has authority over you. But suddenly kneeling is seen as a negative when it’s done during our anthem? In what world does that make sense? You don’t get to change the widely-accepted perception of a physical gesture because you’re trying to present a distorted narrative. I guess we also need to change the narrative surrounding the oft-removed third verse of the Star-Spangled Banner, in addition to Francis Scott Key’s messy and contradictory history as a slave owner and anti-abolitionist. Wait, we’ve already done that.

  • emercycrite

    Had no idea Ryan was a veteran.

  • Hereweare

    Here we go again with the “white privilege”. As a veteran, Rose is more than entitled to his opinion, but since some don’t agree, it’s because he’s white. When a certain other porn star who comes to mind (Rose’s friend) speaks out on controversial subjects, I don’t recall ever hearing “There goes black Diesel”.

    Newsflash: Kaepernick is biracial. So, why don’t we all take to one knee to thank this great white man for lending his support against police brutality toward those black folks.

    Yes……it is that ridiculous.

    And for any oncoming trolls……..I truly, deeply support and respect the movement. Not only do the players have the right, they are also correct. But that’s not my point here.

    • jacob221

      than what is your point ?
      (Rose’s friend ) the word friend might be reaching

    • Marko

      People are talking about white privilege because RyRo might have a bit more understanding of the reasons for Kaepernick’s protest if he was statistically more likely to experience them himself. Why isn’t he statistically more likely to experience police harassment and brutality? Hmm? If this really is about the form of the protest then he should explain exactly what is so disrespectful about kneeling. It’s a peaceful protest that makes a point and still works as a sign of respect for the flag, the country, and those who’ve served. RR needs to explain what’s so objectionable about it but I doubt he can and will.

      • Hereweare

        As I stated in my comment, I am in complete agreement with you in regard to the protest – both the meaning behind it and the way it’s being executed. My problem is that Ryan Rose is in fact a veteran, and any veteran deserves to chime in on a subject like this without being accused of “white privilege”. Is it part of the conversation? Of course. But is that where his opinion stems from? I don’t know…….and neither do you.

        • Marko

          Okay, so race is completely irrelevant to a conversation about race. Thanks for the correction.

      • Hereweare

        Perhaps dragging your name into my comment wasn’t the best way to make my point, but from your response, I would think that you in fact “get” my point.
        And yes, I enjoy the anonymity sites like this allow. Ain’t the internet great?
        But if you’re so bold and out there, and since you “get your shit as well”, then why don’t you chime in? What do you think? Is Ryan Rose expressing his opinion as a veteran, or is he just another misinformed white man speaking out of turn?

  • Mic

    Never mind Ryan Rose, what surprises me, about the whole knee bit, is the “Carrot on a Stick issue” that this has become. Trump purposely threw this in front of the masses, for us to chase after. Who will pursue rights for LGBT issues, Prison reform, Who will debate Russia? Healthcare? How about taxes? Deregulation? Voting Rights? Oh, wait, the national anthem on bended knee. I hate to say this, but it worked! No sucka here!

    Stupid but fine though.

  • OverKill
  • A.C.

    I am a bit troubled that what I am about to say may very well be read as support for Mr. Rose instead of the sentiment that his protest represents. That said, I have never questioned Mr. Kaepernick’s motivations, they are honorable and necessary at a time when police minority engagement is in desperate need for reform. I did object, however, to the means. This is not an issue of constitutionality, or first amendment free speech, as the NFL is a private organization, but it certainly did have that feel when the President inveighed in on the matter. Nevertheless, I still contend that though the matter is not strictly constitutional the President’s criticism violated the spirit, but I digress.

    The message of the protest was lost to the method of protest and that is the truly disheartening aspect of this entire situation. We now know more about Kaepernick then we do the stories of the lives lost to unnecessary police action. When gestures distract from the ambition or goal of a movement then I think that it is only reasonable to reevaluate the protest. That is why I objected, though I was never offended by it. Mr. Rose’s expression of objection is his to make and I respect that. I just hope that he is able to give his full throated support to the cause of community engagement reform the next time (and unfortunately there will be a next time) another Eric Garner, Philando Castillo, or Sandra Bland is killed or harassed to death.

  • ANTSLC

    SARCASTIC WOW! You know, I’m really sick of people that think they’re opinion is SO important that they use their social media ‘platforms’ to mount censorship campaigns. Seriously Ryan Rose, do you really think YOUR opinion and blocking will make any difference? Do YOU think Colin K has ANY idea who you are? Furthermore, when you use your Veteran status to make yourself a false authority about what is and is not appropriate national anthem etiquette you end up sounding like a big bore.

    Something is wrong with anyone who puts that level of dogma onto a flag. And hasn’t he done military themed porn in the past? So Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem is an unforgivable offense, but not bastardizing the military uniform for a fetish? I don’t think Ryan Rose is racist, but he definitely benefits from being an in shape white guy, which is the closest I’ll ever get to acknowledging “white privilege” because my black ass refuses to believe that people like him are better off than me. Kaepernick is doing one of the most peaceful forms of protesting, and that still isn’t enough for some of these idiots who claim up and down “Free Speech” this and “Free Speech” that, but as soon as it’s something they don’t like, “Fuck his free speech” and “It should be mandatory to stand for the flag”.

    Amazing how “fascism” can suddenly be rebranded as “patriotism” at a moment’s notice. At this point, porn studios need to take the Bel Ami business model and take over their stars’ social media accounts

  • AJ’s Black Widow

    And….

  • Talk about someone so narcissistic like Ryan that he thinks blocking these two people that don’t know who the fuck his whore ass is somehow shows them. Ahahahaha Bitch all that cock smacking your face has messed with your fucking head.

    • Xzamilloh

      Is that why it looks like that???

      • Fillers are sensitive and eventually shift.

  • John

    Since he fought for those rights I guess he feels he can tell you when and how to use them….he’s a idiot, plenty of military veterans applaud what he is doing, because they fought for his right to do it. Just another reason to not like Ryan Rose…

  • Caesarimp

    Christ, what an asshole.

  • buffy2004

    so, he is stupid and doesn’t get why Kaepernick did what he did or he doesn’t really care about what is happening with black people all over the country. Either way i enjoy when the true personality of this guy came up so people can see how truly awful he is.

    He show it before and he show it again now.

    • Xzamilloh

      And he will still get paid to promote shit and show up and clubs and still be loved by his admirers and nothing will change because only in gay porn can you be a piece of utter trash and maintain a career.

  • TheLisp

    I know he’s a favourite of yours, but this homo is d https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b49066d60d0fbb8571f5ef1fb49e171b3d255c68b76881c190a4b5218ca5bf34.gif efinitely over him.

  • PaulieP

    Ryan who?

  • Jon

    What an unfortunate idiot.

  • Pinko of the Grange

    And the take away…don’t let porn guys inform you about politics.

  • nerfherder1989

    He’s such an idiot, Kaepernick kneels down because of police brutality not because he’s against the military. Also I highly doubt QQ even gave a rats ass that he blocked them on twitter.
    Anyway can’t wait to see Ryan on the corner sucking dick for meth.

  • nick

    Didn’t they only recently start being on the field during the anthem ?

  • thumper

    You’re a fine example of a vet. Stick to what ur good at and STU…..nobody cares what u think/

  • groovy.

    Oh he’s cancelled.

  • Johnny

    PAH-LEASE! That cheap bitch wasn’t payin for GQ.

  • Izzy

    Update: Ryan, sweetie, you’re still 16 months late and Kaep isn’t even in the league anymore. You just look silly trying to take a stand now. Go bust up a Keurig.

  • Deviancy Behavir

    Haha, so he’s upset with the way he’s protesting, not what he’s protesting about? Like so many have mentioned before, if someone would say, I’d appreciate if you protested this way to make your point, that would be fine. But then someone else would take offense to that. Black and brown folks especially are being killed, maimed and unfairly treated by the police on a daily basis. He wants to act like he’s the arbiter of how someone should protest, but he’s not. He’s just a fool who’s trying to backtrack, because he’s catching heat. Kap is protesting in his own way and it’s peaceful, he’s got every right to do it and people have the right to not like it, but to act like he’s morally offending you, because you served in the military is a bit much.

    • Zachary Sire

      He didn’t “backtrack” anything. His disagreement is with a protest of a symbol (the song/the flag) that represents a part of him and something he respects (military service)

      • Deviancy Behavir

        And I don’t agree with his assertion and I have that right. My assessment is that he is backtracking. He wants to have it both ways, throw it in people’s faces he served, talk about the freedoms he fought to have people gain, then make a this bold statement about blocking both Kap and GQ. He could’ve said I don’t agree with the way he’s protesting, but I fought for him to protest. Thee End. But he made it about him and how offended he was, that’s the problem I’m having with him. He did this for show and is catching heat for seeming insensitive and full of himself.

  • WhimsyCotton

    I’m continually astonished at the amount of conservatives in the gay porn industry. Even more so when they’re actually gay ones.

    • TK

      On chaturbate there is a cute college-age jockish couple (white, of course) from the south who admitted to being huge Trump fans and proudly told the chat they voted for him. They took a little heat but the majority of the chatters were supportive. They made several hundred dollars that night. It was sad reading the comments from gay supporters.

      • WhimsyCotton

        Ugh. I think I would have burst a blood vessel if I saw such stupidity in progress.

    • jacob221

      cause a lot of them come from small little towns and a lot of them have republican daddies
      And
      they so badly want to be accepted by daddy
      its a trade off its this attitude like

      “daddy im gay
      but I don’t like the the blacks ,the muslims and the liberals & Mexicans just like you and I will get a bf that thinks just like that too
      Please accept me daddy

  • C A

    Ryan, I was going to watch at least one scene of yours to see why your fans liked you, but now I’m not.

    Fuck You. Seriously, Fuck You.

  • CamCam

    I’m late in responding to this but it’s clear that Ryan isnt aware or doesn’t care about why Colin is protesting. Even more bothersome is that as a Vet, he should be that much more sensitive to what Colin is doing even if he doesn’t agree with it. I too am a Veteran and a Man of Color too so this touches close to home in more ways than one. We fought so that all of you can be free and part of that freedom is to be free to protest in a peaceful manner which is what Colin Kaepernick is doing and the reasons why are VERY justified. Ryan should be protesting about why cops are going after innocent black men and killing them for no reason but racists can’t do that cause they don’t see the problem in that. Shame on Ryan for not even trying to see all sides of this issue. He’s so worthy of not supporting and following anymore

  • Ninja0980

    This is the same Ryan Rose that beat the living shit out of his ex-boyfriend right?

  • IveHadEnoughOfThis63

    He’s 6’4, he’s tall & handsome so he can do no wrong. I’ll support anything you do Ryan cuz your so tall and handsome.

  • Marcus Collack

    Guess Ryan Rose is trying to get his inheritance back. Caring more about a song, that the government paid the NFL to play, than actual Americans… time for you to hang it up sir. When you are mad at people talking about injustice, but not mad at the injustice…yep, time to hang it up.

  • Maximus

    Being the cynical cunt that I am, I originally assumed that Kaepernick was just being a stunt queen by kneeling during the anthem and that he didn’t actually anticipate having any impact upon the disproportionate targeting of racial minorities by law enforcement. However, he continued the practice despite drawing condemnation and ire from teammates, rival teams, NFL executives, politicians, and certain (white) segments of the American populace. He was likewise undeterred when his protests hurt him professionally. I now see that his actions were altruistic, and I respect him for it. Patriotism is about allegiance to the fundamental ideological principles upon which this nation has always purported to be founded. There’s nothing patriotic about blind allegiance to a song or a symbol at the expense of promoting the fundamental equality of all citizens.

    Now, let’s talk about (1) the disproportionate targeting of racial minorities by law enforcement, and (2) the fact that official crime statistics are only a measure of which lawbreakers the state chooses to investigate, arrest, and/or prosecutor—the true rates of offending can never be known.

    • A.C.

      His unfortunate choice of this form of protest will insure that we will not discuss either of those things. That was made this entire ordeal heartbreaking. We were distracted by the gesture and learned nothing new about the reason giving rise to it. If the public knows his name and his story but not the stories of Philando, Eric Garner, or Sandra Bland, then again, he failed in his mission. His heart was presumably in the right place, however, this situation required heart and sober mind to be in alignment so that method did not overcome message.

      • Maximus

        He protested in the most visible way possible. The fact that his actions v
        bfamiled to provoke a discussion of police brutality and targeting of minor majorityities is society’s fault, not his.

        • A.C.

          That conclusion presumes a number of things, not the least of which is the idea that he could not have been highly visible and chosen a means of addressing the issue that kept the focus on the narrative and not him. When you have society’s attention it is your job to advance the conversation toward the ultimate goal of legislative reform. That we did not see that is not because society was not listening, it was because the form of protest became larger than the conversation.

          • Maximus

            Nationally broadcast NFL games are highly visible, and that setting was one in which he found himself regularly. It makes more sense than traveling to DC to hold a sign on the steps of the Capitol Building. Again, the narrative was distorted by rightwing spin in an attempt to avoid the real issues.

            A legislative fix could work. Are you proposing regulations that would require law enforcement officers to undergo deescalation training and learn about implicit bias?

            P.S. Apologies for the delayed response.

          • A.C.

            The first part of your argument would be compelling but for the fact that his gesture was made without an explanation and with nothing more than a claim of righteous grievance. He could have made a profound statement during all of his press conferences after games (God knows it would have distracted from then 49ers disastrous season at that point.). That would have given him an opportunity to explain with detail and nuance.

            His gesture was a blunt, terse statement that left others to project on to it and made it easier for the opposition to do the same. The message was not distorted, it simply did not exist. For a problem as large as this it required more than just a statement of protest.

            Bear in mind that other players who had similar grievances decided to state their objections and solutions more locally; addressing state legislatures, endorsing more community based legislation, and as one player did donating to a fund that helps victims of these shootings successfully sue state authorities when the state fails to prosecute. Mr. Kaepernick was indignant and rightly so, but his anger is a wasted emotion and his fervor could have fueled the right debate instead of what this morphed into ultimately.

            I do believe that there is quite a bit to be done legislatively, and those prescriptions touch on everything from sentencing reform to police community engagement. The challenge is in finding the right message to address those issues comprehensively. God do we another Whitney Young right now.

            Ps – no problem, it seems we picked up where we left off anyway!

          • A.C.

            The first part of your argument would be compelling but for the fact that he never provided us with a message. His gesture was a blunt, terse statement of grievance that allowed others to project onto it, including the opposition.

            He could have used his post game conferences to address these issues (God knows it would have provided a much needed distraction to the 49ers play). The statement would have been unambiguous, direct, and nuanced. Other players did what he did not and even decided to make their activism more of a local affair; appealing to state legislators and addressing issues beyond police community engagement. Mr. Kaepernick merely failed to recognize the awesome position and place he occupied and allowed a narrative to be misdirected.

            I do believe that there is more to be done and the prescriptions touch on issues from sentencing reform to addressing the standard of culpability in civil actions in suits against law enforcement. God do we need another Whitney Young yet!

            Ps – no need to apologize, it seems we picked up right where we left off.

    Something that always strikes me is this idea that it is necessary to “honor the service” of current or former military. When I was growing up, in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, this was by no means a given. Now, if you don’t genuflect to every service member and say “Thank you” you are somehow morally reprehensible. Since the first Iraqi war, the narrative has been totally rewritten. This is all the more curious since the second Iraq War and the situation in Afghanistan bear uncomfortable similarities to Vietnam: militarily of dubious value, entered into under questionable circumstances, large numbers of veterans returning with physical, traumatic, and moral injuries… To me, those men and women who make the choice to voluntarily enter the military, especially since Bush 2, are making a career choice with an ambiguous moral value at best. Not to mention that I’ve yet to see an administration that I would trust with my child’s life. Maybe I’m just an old cynic, but I’d like to see the ‘age of consent’ for entering the service raised to something like 25 or 30; perhaps then there might be enough experience and wisdom there to make that choice. Something tells me that enlistment rates might drop dramatically. I guess I just have difficulty appreciating that choice since the Bush 2 fiasco. And the militarism of this country scares me more than it makes me feel safe or secure. So, thank you for doing the job you chose, no matter what that is, I guess, but I find this whole thing ambivalent at best, frightening and oppressive at worst.

  • Wickbaby

    It sounds to me as if Ryan Rose is more upset with how Colin chose to protest police brutality than he is of the actual police brutality…

  • Badger

    Who shows a lack of respect for the flag and the National Anthem and what they represent more? The people who trash the environment, wage a war on the poor, deny the humanity of ALL people, deny basic medical care for the most needy, believe Meals on Wheels is wasted money, accept misogyny in all its forms and at times even glorifies it, ad nauseum, or the guy who takes a knee?
    I’m an Air Force vet and I fully support Colin.

  • YandyDandy

    Like anyone gives a fuck about his opinion. GQ must be shaking with worry about this loss of income.
    Yet another example of a delusional porn performer thinking his views, comments and actions make any difference in this world. Carry of getting fucked for a few dollars – that literally is all you are good for.

  • Victor

    Hi Ryan! You need to get better at hiding your Identity online

    • WyattTF

      Sigh…I wish I had a body like Ryan.

  • R.A.M.J

    And he thinks GQ or Kaepernick actually gives a damn? Is he this outraged when news of a police officer abuse their power and brutilizes men and women of color?

  • WyattTF

    Lolol always gotta point the finger outwards huh.

    • Victor

      Yes, that is what people thought reading your comment.

  • James

    Poor Mr. Rose, intellect is not your gift, obviously;

    Kaepernik’s actions make him a Hero in a America as much as any Veteran because he is willing to speakup, loud, clear and on point, even it that risks his own piece of the “American Dream”.

    There are cold undeniable truths in America that need fixing:

    1. Poor people in the USA have no realistic chance to experience a glamorous American Lifestyle as social mobility has frozen out those at the bottom.

    2. If you are Poor and Black and male you experience something that has more in common with a “Police State” where liberty is treated as commodity/luxury and violence in one form or another poisons your life. Young black men really are being destroyed by a rapatious criminal justice system that is corrupted completely by the petty motivations of a political elite.

    Your twitter rant is ill advised and IMO…you should remember this:

    Flags don’t come before people. People must always be more important than a stupid flag.
