Good ole America, when somebody disagrees with your opinion, the racists always show up and show their true colors. These people love to live in the shadows of social media where people won’t touch them and they can troll as much as possible.
On Friday, 49ers back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick took it upon himself to exercise his freedom of speech and refuse to stand while the National Anthem was playing. He had done this the two previous games, but nobody noticed because he wasn’t playing, so all it took was one photo to send social media in a frenzy especially after 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.”
Then the racists showed up:

Maybe @Kaepernick7 should go back to Africa to play football since he hates America so much. Probably doesn’t pay quite as well
