Controversial 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his anti-police practice socks.


As the Colin Kaepernick controversy comes to a head tonight at the final preseason game against the San Diego Chargers, the struggling backup quarterback has been subtly taking jabs at police everyday at practice.

The once-promising benchwarmer wears socks that depict police as pigs – a very unoriginal derogatory term for police officers – to team practices.

As most of America knows by now, the former starting QB refuses to stand for the National Anthem. He states is protesting police brutality against minorities and won’t stand until America fixes it.

However, the game tonight against the Chargers is setting up to be the perfect contrast between pride in the flag and what it represents, and loathing it, as tonight is ironically the Charger’s 28th annual Salute to the Military.

This salute will include a field-covering American Flag presented by 240 members of the US armed forces, the National Anthem being sung by a Navy sailor, color guards from various branches (more flags), as well as more performances by military members and the honoring of Vietnam veterans. If people thought he looked like a fool sitting down for the National Anthem before, this will be an act of epic buffoonery.

Without getting into all of the reasons why the facts absolutely do not support his claims (who needs facts though, right?) that “people of color have been targeted by police,” is a has-been, never-really-was quarterback who may be cut anyway after this game sitting through the Anthem any way to effectuate the change he desires?

    I guess the DOJ made up facts in its investigations of the BPD and the Ferguson police department which found blatant racism and bias against minorities.

    His actions sparked a debate and once again brought media attention to these issues so I’d say he achieved something.
    Showing that some veterans value rights like freedom of speech more than a song is an added bonus.
    Exposing some of the narrow-minded NFL front office people is just the cherry on top and not really important but entertaining.
    So while his actions may not directly effectuate the change he desires he used his position and what little power he has quite effectively.
