Last month, 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.”
Since then, Kaepernick’s protests have spread through the football world like wildfire, and earlier this week, we reported that even liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsberg had had enough of this.
“I think it’s really dumb of them,” she had said of NFL players protesting the national anthem and flag. “Would I arrest them for doing it? No. I think it’s dumb and disrespectful.”
Now, Kaepernick is firing back at Ginsberg, calling her criticisms of him “disappointing.”
“I was reading an article and it refers to white critique of black protests and how they try to de-legitimize it by calling it ‘idiotic, dumb, stupid’ — things of that nature — so they can sidestep the real issue,” Kaepernick also said, according to Conservative Tribune. “As I was reading that I saw more and more truth how this has been approached by people in power and white people in power in particular.”
What Kaepernick doesn’t realize is that HE is actually being racist by assuming that anyone who opposed his pathetic stunts was white.
