Harry Belafonte on Colin Kaepernick “To Mute the Slave Has Always Been to the Best Interest of the Slave Owner”

harrybelafonteI don’t really have to or I shouldn’t have to let anyone know who is but for the sake of this post, I will just say this. Belafonte is a singer, songwriter, actor, and social activist to put it plainly. He was an early supporter of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s, and one of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s confidants. Throughout his career he has been an advocate for political and humanitarian causes, such as the anti-apartheid movement and USA for Africa. Since 1987 he has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. In recent years he has been a vocal critic of the policies of both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama presidential administrations. Harry Belafonte now acts as the American Civil Liberties Union celebrity ambassador for juvenile justice issues.
