49ers Colin Kaepernick must have watched too many of Michelle Obama's commencement addresses. UPDATED

NFL   Also covered at Breitbart California


Perhaps he has watched too many of Michelle Obama's commencement speeches.

"San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has willingly immersed himself into controversy by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States.
"His latest refusal to stand for the anthem -- he has done this in at least one other preseason game -- came before the 49ers' preseason loss to Green Bay at Levi's Stadium on Friday night.
" '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. "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.' "...
"By taking a stand for civil rights, Kaepernick, 28, joins other athletes, like the NBA's Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony and several WNBA players in using their platform and status to raise awareness to issues affecting minorities in the U.S.". . . 

Right: NOT Kaepernick


Update:

49ers Fan Has A Flaming Message For Colin Kaepernick  . . . "He added: ‘People die every single day defending that flag you refuse to stand for and I won’t stand for that.’
" ‘This jersey was the worst $50 investment I have ever had … you should never play in the NFL again, move to Canada.’ "
