The only thing worst than “White privilege” is LGBT White privilege. Magan Rapinoe’s attempted hijack of a protest against police brutality (mostly White police killing unarmed Black men) is typical LGBT weasling in on Black causes. I applaud the owner of the soccer Washington Spirit for out-smarting Rapinoe’s attempt to hijack a protest that footballer Colin Kaepernick started.

While many in the country criticise Kaepernick, right or wrong, the same level of criticism is not being thrown at Rapinoe. Why not? Answer: White gay privilege.

I admit, I have never heard of this woman soccer player until her attempted hijack. But let’s be real, Magan Rapinoe is using her White gay privilege on a matter that had Colin Kaepernick been too afraid to take a knee on, Magan Rapinoe would still be standing with her hand over her heart and singing the national anthem out of tune.

And as far as Rapinoe’s claim that she thinks Bill Lynch, owner of the Washington Spirit is “homophobic” than what am I for sharing his views?
