no title

Sounds like Bill Maher is HEATED!

The Real Time host had a lot to say about NFL star Colin Kaepernick on his show on Friday night, even going so far as to call the athlete a "f*cking idiot" — although it's not exactly for the reason you may think.

Speaking to a panel that included Sarah Silverman, Maher went in on Kaepernick for comments the quarterback made about the presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, that insinuated neither one is a good choice for president.

In his initial comments last week, Kaepernick had said both candidates are "proven liars" who are "trying to debate who's less racist," and that absolutely set Maher off.

Watch Maher break down the quarterback's POV, here:

9-Year-Old Girl Sobs While Addressing Racism & Police Shootings At Charlotte City Council: 'We Are Black People & We Shouldn't Have To Feel Like This'

Zianna Oliphant may be little, but she's got a big voice and a powerful message.

In the wake of Keith Lamont Scott's controversial killing at the hands of a plainclothes officer with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, people took to the streets to protest.

And, on Monday, Charlotte City Council held its first meeting since the demonstrations erupted.

During the meeting, 9-year-old Zianna stood behind the podium, emotionally addressing racism and police shootings before the council, saying:

"I came here today to talk about how I feel, and I feel like we are treated differently than other people. And, I don't like how we're treated just because of our color. Doesn't mean anything to me."

The little girl began to break down, and exclaimed, with tears streaming down her face:

"We are black people and we shouldn't have to feel like this. We shouldn't have to protest because y'all are treating us wrong. We do this because we need to, and have rights."

Through her tears, the inspiring youngster composed herself, and continued:

Former NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Would Rather See Colin Kaepernick Protest The National Anthem Than 'Put His Hands Up & Get Murdered'

no title

Marshawn Lynch just made a very powerful point in support of Colin Kaepernick.

In the wake of Tulsa police fatally shooting unarmed Terence Crutcher, the Seattle Seahawks alum just perfectly defended the quarterback's decision to peacefully protest the National Anthem.

On Tuesday, the retired NFL star joined Conan O'Brien on his late-night show to literally stand up for the San Francisco 49ers player, poignantly saying:

"With what's going on, I'd really rather see him take a knee, than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered."

So incredibly well-said, while tragically highlighting the serious police profiling problem throughout our country.

The 30-year-old hopes Colin's movement causes a societal shift across the nation, which will make everyone aware of the racism that still exists, and ultimately end it, adding:

"My take on it is, sh*t's gotta start somewhere. And if that was the starting point, I just hope people open up their eyes to see that there's really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop."

The ex-running back also called out everyone against the athlete's harmless display:

"And, I mean, if you're really not racist, then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have."
