BACKLASH

We’ve all certainly had moments in our lives when we’ve said or done something we’ve later regretted. San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick must surely be in that camp.

Unless you live under a rock, you know by now that Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem before a preseason game last Friday because he was protesting “black oppression” in America.

As Col. West pointed out earlier today, Mr. Kaepernick, a biracial young man adopted and raised by white parents, claims America is oppressing blacks at a time when we have a black, biracial president who was twice elected. We’ve had two black attorneys general and currently have a black secretary of homeland security, along with a black national security advisor.

In case Kaepernick is still standing by his original comments, a host of professional athletes have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts on the matter. We call this, “getting flamed.”

Yep. Wouldn’t be surprised if we get an apology soon. Will be disappointed if we don’t.
