Kaepernick called America a racist country. Is the NFL racist, too?

Oh sure America is racist, but more so to whites than blacks. America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that they were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known any where. Blacks should get down on their knees and thank God they are Americans, and stop whining so much.
Second, No people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the black communities into the mainstream.
Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants.
Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where the hell is the gratitude?
Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for blacks are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the black community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?
Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?
As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is this idiot 0bama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?
These racist liberals are to stupid to be aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?
Sorry, blacks, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.
