Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who lost his starting job to Blaine Gabbert and then left the NFL rather than take a salary cut, weighed in over the weekend on the NFL draft, saying that the NFL draft was like a slave auction.
We know, and have historical records, of the life and living conditions of slaves in the US. For comparison, in 2020 Kaepernick’s net worth was estimated at $22 million, his 2020 income was estimated at well over $10 million and below are pictures of his ‘slave quarters’ from public records (the pool, in ground hot tub and outbuildings are not pictured). I also assume that Kaepernick does not clean his own house but has someone he hires to do that for him. Near as I recall, slaves were not able to hire help to do their work for them.
