Last week, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines when he refused to stand as the national anthem played before a game. Within 24 hours, fans were burning his jersey to let him know that what he did was wrong.
Kaepernick tried to defend his shameful show of disrespect by race-baiting.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he said of his protest. “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.”
Though the 49ers refused to cut Kaepernick from their roster, it looks like he will be doing a whole lot more sitting this season. According to Right Wing News, Blaine Gabbert has been named as the team’s starting quarterback instead of Kaepernick.
It didn’t take long for race-baiting liberals to accuse 49ers coach Chip Kelly of being “racist.”
