NFL Free Agent Colin Kaepernick is known for his shameless race-baiting stunts that include sitting down during the national anthem to protest racial inequality. However, he took things way too far on Friday when he took to Twitter to disrespect police officers in a sick way.
Daily Mail reported that Kaepernick compared American police officers to fugitive slave patrolmen in a post that now has him in hot water. The post included an image of a police badge alongside a fugitive slave patrolman badge.
“A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!” Kaepernick wrote.

This tweet was in response to Officer Jeronimo Yanez being found not guilty of murdering 32-year-old Philando Castile at a traffic stop in a St Paul suburb last year. However, Twitter users quickly let Kaepernick know that comparing police to slave patrolmen is extremely offensive.
THIS IS WHY YOU DONT HAVE A JOB! Good luck in the CFL

Why doesn’t Colin put on the uniform and fix the problems from within? That’s how you fix a problem, you suit up and perform the actions!
