Colin Kaepernick has a point. In an era where the Black community is still grappling with a ‘Black is Beautiful’ culture that leads to the loss of life due to a color of skin, many Black Americans look at their struggles as an attempt to ‘make a stand’ and show that they will no longer tolerate systemic racism in the United States.
Some people just don’t have the voice to express a particular opinion. And some people are being oppressed simply because they have a different skin color or different political views.
Colin Kaepernick has the same mindset as many of your favorite college athletes: he doesn’t think that he has to be a superstar to have a successful pro career.
According to a report by the Daily Mail, Kaepernick said: “First of all, I’m 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.”

Kaepernick was one of the most controversial athletes of 2016. There were people who hated him just because he was black. This is the main reason for his low ratings.
Also, it was not only sports stars who rated low among Latinos. Latinos like Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Sheen were not as popular as their white counterparts.
Because he thinks it will discourage other people from losing weight, which is a dumb idea.
I’m sure they were both heated. But Kaepernick’s was heated because it was not in the heat of the battle. It was the day after, and the 49ers were sitting in a locker room, alone. Kaepernick was clearly heated, but it’s hard to imagine that he would have been as “fired-up” as Harbaugh’s words suggest if he hadn’t known the issue was with him.

We all know why Colin Kaepernick doesn’t think he can make the 53-man roster at San Francisco.
In his first season as a starter in 2016, Kaepernick led the Niners to a 13-3 record and the NFC Championship. Unfortunately for Kaepernick and the Niners, the Seahawks went on to win the title.
