COLIN KAEPERNICK BEEN WEARING ‘PIG COP’ SOCKS TO PRACTICE BUT DIDN’T GET NOTICED, DECIDED NOT TO STAND DURING NATIONAL ANTHEM AND VOILA! HE FINALLY GOT AMERICA’S ATTENTION!
So Colin Kaepernick hates cops! And just discovered he’s been wearing ‘Pig Cop’ socks to practice but did get noticed so this half-white rich sports celeb decided a new tactic – he refused to stand for the national anthem.
His reason for not standing? Kaepernick doesn’t want to “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”
But in a recent interview, he clarified with CBS Sports that his problem isn’t with the American flag or national anthem but with the police, specifically.
“There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable,” Kaepernick told the media on Sunday. “People are being given paid leave for killing people. That’s not right. That’s not right by anyone’s standards.”
In July, Kaepernick made an anti-cop comment on Instagram after two black Americans were shot by cops.
“This is what lynchings look like in 2016!” he said. “Another murder in the streets because the color of a man’s skin, at the hands of the people who they say will protect us.
In the meantime, sports commentator Stephen Smith wants Kaepernick to address Black on Black crime – a taboo when you talk about crimes against blacks.
