As millions of your fellow Americans are readying themselves for another “exciting” NFL Season, one player, named Colin Kaepernick, is taking a stand against a country that he claims oppresses black people and people of color.
This mental midget has made millions of dollars playing a child’s game. What a great contribution to society. He also lives in 4,600 sqft home in the wealthiest part of San Jose California. A home with a price tag of nearly $3 million.
Oh you’re so oppressed?
Here’s a quote from this dick head…
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said. “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.”
The 49ers organization released the following statement late Friday night and confirmed Kaepernick remained seated during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner.
“The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem.”
