With his jersey being the most sold this season, you'd think the odds are with NFL Player and perhaps the loudest voice of the oppressed Colin Kaepernick but quite the opposite as most people who bought did so just to film themselves destroy the San Francisco 49ers #7 jersey.
"One of the things I've noticed throughout this is there's a lot of racism in this country disguised as patriotism, and people want to take everything back to the flag, but that's not what we are talking about."
"We are talking racial discrimination, inequalities and injustices that are happening across the nation" Kaepernick said Tuesday."
He also said death threats have come from "a couple of different avenues" including social media and when he was asked about whether somebody were to act upon the specific threats made towards him, Kaepernick said "it will be loud and clear for everyone why it happened, and that would move this movement forward at a greater speed than what it is even now."
"There's a lot of racism disguised as patriotism in this country. And people don't like to address that. And they don't like to address what the root of this protest is." - he added.
"You have a situation like Terence Crutcher, where his car was broken down and he was looking for help and got murdered," Kaepernick said. "That's a perfect example of what this is about. I think it'll be very telling what happens with the officer that killed him."
Kaepernick said he would donate $1 million of his salary this season to local communities that support his protest over the next 10 months.
