San Francisco 49ers Fans Burn Colin Kaepernick’s Jersey (Video)
Freedom of speech, until you say something the masses disagree with.
On Friday, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took it upon himself to exercise his freedom of speech and refuse to stand while the National Anthem was playing, which he had done during the previous two games, but nobody noticed and he didn’t bring attention to it. But prior to preseason game #3, someone took a photo and the rest is history. Then came his comments:
“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 told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game against Green Bay. “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.”
So, this particular 49ers fan decided to burn his Kaepernick jersey while standing at attention listening to the National Anthem.
