Colin Kaepernick basically wants to burn the current justice system down to the ground to get rid of White supremacy.
On Friday, Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who shot and killed two men and wounded a third during the protests and rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was found not guilty by a jury on all charges. The shocking announcement garnered reactions from athletes, many of whom had walked out of games last summer following the police shooting of Jacob Blake that prompted the protests.
Former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick, who is now a full time activist, took to Twitter and said the state of White supremacy needs to be shut down by getting rid of the current justice system.
“We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist.
This only further validates the need to abolish our current system. White supremacy cannot be reformed.”
Rittenhouse faced five felony counts, including first-degree intentional homicide.
The shooting of Blake, a Black man left partly paralyzed, spurred protests around the sports world, led by Milwaukee Bucks, NBA and WNBA players opting not to play games for one night while at the bubble in Florida.
