Colin Kaepernick: So!

Colin Kaepernick's choice to not be politically correct got conservatives outraged.

Conservatives used to get riled up when political correctness was running amuck. They want to be free to call the first Black president a NIGGER. They want to "Make America Great Again". They want to "take their country back".

Hell conservatives don't believe the narratives of "Hands Up Don't Shoot" or "I Can't Breathe".

Now they're outraged when a person of color refuses to use political correctness when it comes to pledging allegiance to his country.

Now they're screaming for him to lose his NFL deal. A freedom of protest and freedom of speech issue runs into the forefront of this ugly campaign between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

The calls for him to be fired out the cannon are becoming today's fodder. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick lit a shit storm by refusing to stand for the national anthem. He said that he can't support a flag that continues to oppress Blacks and people of color.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. 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."

He is upset over the recent police shootings of unarmed Black people.

Colin became the most vocal voice in the NFL to support Black Lives Matter, an activist group that calls for police reform in the Black community.

The group is controversial. Many conservatives dismiss this group as anti-White and anti-cop. The alt-right (white extremists, conservative agitators and Republicans) have tried to brandish this a "hate group". They even tried to infiltrate local BLM groups to instigate violence for click bait.

Former San Francisco 49er Jerry Rice blasted him for his stance. He posted on social media saying that "All lives matter. SO much going on in this world today. Can we all just get along. Colin, I respect your stance but don't disrespect the Flag."

People blasted Rice for bringing up "can we all get along". It was the message of Rodney King, the late civil rights activist who was beaten nearly dead by the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department.

The officers getting off the attempted murder charges sparked the LA Riots.

Even the Republican nominee Donald Trump said that Kaepernick should go to a country that works better for him.

Obviously, he meant continent because Africa is has 54 countries and the ignorant believe Africa is a country.
