You have to love the internet! Colin Kaepernick wore an afro that looked like it was straight out of the 70’s to tonight’s SF vs San Diego game. Many believe this was Kap’s subtle response to former NLF player Rodney Harrison, whom said Colin Kaepernick didn’t have a right to feel the way he does about minority issues with police, be cause “Kaepernick isn’t black.”
When asked about Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the National Anthem, Harrison had this to say:
I tell you this, I’m a black man. And Colin Kaepernick, he’s not black. He cannot understand what I face and what other young black men and black people face, or people of color face, on a every single (day) basis. When you walk in a grocery store, and you might have $2,000 or $3,000 in your pocket and you go up in to a Foot Locker and they’re looking at you like you about to steal something.
The host then asked Harrison to elaborate on his claim that Kaepernick is not black and is therefore not qualified to stage such a protest. Harrison answered:
I’m not saying that he has to be black. I said his heart is in the right place, but even with what he’s doing, he still doesn’t understand that we face as a black man or people of color, that’s what I’m saying.
Well tonight, #KAPSOBLACK began trending on twitter. Many expressing their approval in humorously of course, confirming for anyone who ever doubted Kaepernick’s “blackness.” Check it out below!
