  1. Subject is notable for a single incident, otherwise not relevant to the mission. Anything useful to talk here is already covered plenty in our other articles. No different than random articles on irrelevant politicians we delete all the time. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 13:03, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

  3. Oh, Christ, yes. Another case of somebody having their 15 minutes of infamy and one year later nobody knows who the fuck they are. Spud (talk) 14:18, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
  4. I have never heard of him before, he can go to the trash bin for all I bother to care. 2A02:120B:C3FB:3B40:F59D:4FAA:510E:4F1D (talk) 14:25, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
    Are IPs/BONs eligible to vote on these things? I feel like that opens up the potential for abuse. ℕoir LeSable (talk) 14:34, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

  1. Kaepernick was basically the founder and pioneer of the 'taking a knee' movement in support of Black Lives Matter. His NFL career was destroyed as a result - no one has hired him in the intervening 3 5 years - so hwe has been made a victim by the florid and excessive blowback he received from his dignified and respectful protest. This sounds plenty missional to me. Smerdis of Tlön, wekʷōm teḱsos. 03:18, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
  2. Agree with Smerdis. Plutocow (talk) 03:37, 13 April 2021 (UTC)


  1. redirect to Taking a knee, because it's not just him anymore. Avida Dollarsher again 13:31, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
  2. I suggest keeping the content in general but have an article about protests by sports players on the subject of police brutality. Merge to police brutality if can't do a complete page on this. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 16:15, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
