Colin Kaepernick Stands Up For Black Injustice
Colin Kaepernick, who is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi, Fraternity, Inc., recently spoke out about black injustice in America. He has submerged himself into controversy after refusing to not stand for the national anthem in protest of African-Americans and people of color. After Friday’s night preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, Kaepernick told the NFL Media, “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 also says that this situation is bigger than football and “would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and get away with murder.
Kapernick’s recent posts on his social media outlets have been civil rights based tweets and messages.
“I have to stand up for people who are oppressed."
Kaepernick has endorsements with Jaguar, MusclePharm, Beats by Dre and many more and doesn't care if his endorsements are stripped because of his actions. "If they take football away, my endorsements from me, I know that I stood up for what is right.”
Below are a few posts from the last couple of months of Kaepernick's Instagram.
