he San Francisco 49’ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has set off a firestorm online after disgracing the United States of America. During the preseason game on Friday between the San Francisco 49’ers and the Green bay Packers, Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem. Not many noticed, nobody even bothered to questioned him in the post game press conference. One website, Pro Football Talk, wrote a short article on it. The black Quaterback under a $110 Million dollar contract told reporters he sat through the National Anthem because America oppresses Black People.
“I AM NOT GOING TO STAND UP TO SHOW PRIDE IN A FLAG FOR A COUNTRY THAT OPPRESSES BLACK PEOPLE AND PEOPLE OF COLOR. TO ME, THIS IS BIGGER THAN FOOTBALL AND IT WOULD BE SELFISH ON MY PART TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY. THERE ARE BODIES IN THE STREET AND PEOPLE GETTING PAID LEAVE AND GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER.” – COLIN KAEPERNICK
