A report claims that Colin Kaepernick, former NFL quarterback, is ready to train with the Las Vegas Raiders after six years of being out of the game.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news Wednesday via Twitter. He said, “Colin Kaepernick,” who played last football in 2016, the year he began kneeling during national anthem protests of racial injustices, was scheduled to train this week for the Las Vegas Raiders league sources told ESPN.”
Schefter pointed out that Kaepernick was a national figure after he protested against the country during the entire 2016 season by kneeling during the performance of the national anthem.
Colin Kaepernick, a former NFL player, stated clearly that he couldn’t stand for the American flag when he started his protests in 2016. He said that his protest was an attack on the flag, the country and himself in August 2016.
“I will not stand up to display pride in a flag that represents a country that oppresses people of color and black people. This is more than football to me and I would not be selfish to ignore it. Kaepernick stated that there are many bodies on the streets and that people get paid leave to commit murder.
Kaepernick also gave clues as to the nature of his protests in 2016. Kaepernick also gave clues about the nature of his protests in 2016. He wore a shirt that praised Fidel Castro, the Cuban dictator and mass murderer. Kaepernick showed that he wasn’t just protesting the misbehaving police when he wore socks depicting all police officers as pigs.
In 2016, Kaepernick also stated that the U.S. was not great. He noted that he was standing up for the country in general and not just to support “social justice” with his anthem protests.
Former NFL player protested the flag by forcing Nike to discontinue its Betsy Ross flag shoes for 2019. Nike had announced it would release a patriotic shoe featuring a Betsy Ross Flag motif, but Kaepernick made fun of the anti-American left and attacked Nike for the announcement. Kaepernick claimed that the U.S. Betsy Ross Flag was a symbol of slavery in one of his rants against Nike.
Nike quickly gave in to the patriotic shoe plans and dropped them.
He has since accused the NFL of treating its players like slaves.
Kaepernick, who turned down every chance he was given to play pro football, is not currently playing.
Kaepernick declined an offer from the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 to remain on the team. He wanted more money. Kaepernick turned down many opportunities thereafter, not to mention the fact that he made a circus out NFL’s 2019 workout offer.
Kaepernick still calls the NFL slavery and claims that he would like another chance to play in the NFL.
