Artist Pays Homage to Colin Kaepernick with Mural In Oakland
San Francisco 49ers back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick stirred up a whirlwind of controversy during the preseason when a photo surfaced of him sitting during the playing of the National Anthem. When he stated why, the controversy got worse and louder from around the country to the tune of many received death threats and NFL fans voting him the league’s most disliked player…
Most disliked, but he still has the top selling jersey in the entire league.
Twitter user Pendarvis Harshaw wanted to let Kaepernick know he had some support not too far from where he plays when he took to Twitter and shared a photo Thursday that he took of a mural in Oakland depicting Kaepernick, which includes the message, “We got your back.”
