Several years ago, former San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Colin Kaepernick caused quite a stir across the nation when he began kneeling during the national anthem before games in protest of racial inequality and injustice in the United States and in the NFL. But unfortunately, he does not seem to think a lot has changed since then.
During an interview with NPR this week, Colin Kaepernick was asked if he thinks that the NFL has changed for the better since his protests. And Kaepernick got brutally honest with his response, announcing to the world that he has not seen “substantial change” from the league.
“I haven’t seen any substantial change,” Kaepernick said in the NPR interview, according to Fox News. “I think there is a lot of work to do on that front. Obviously, not playing and being out of the NFL for six years is an indictment on where they are currently at. So I wouldn’t put them at the forefront of goodwill and best of intentions in how they operate.”
It was a brutal message to the league, and fans had plenty to say about the message on social media.
Colin, you can’t see change because you choose to be an aggressor, a bully.
One that cries and cries when things don’t go your way. Without any substance.
I’d say grow up, by your immaturity seems to be terminal. Sorry.

If I were him, I wouldn’t go back if a team offered me $100 million/year, if I was made the Rams’ starting QB for the coming season, if I was offered multiple lucrative endorsements, movie deals, and TV appearances. I’d show them….

Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since the 2016 season when he accused NFL owners of blackballing him from the league. After the two sides settled, he conducted multiple tryouts in front of NFL scouts but did not receive a contract offer from any team.
