  1. Good for the cause what else is he doing? Has constructed any protests against gun violence against black people? Drug dealers? How about sex trafficking in the black community? I’ll wait……………

  2. By the time the US Constitution was ratified, and 13 BRITISH colonies OFFICIALLY became the United States, 5 states ALREADY had anti-slavery laws on the books.

  3. Kaepernick does not complain that almost *modern-slaves, and kids make those Nike shoes in sweat-shops* in India and Asia working 24/7 a day for cents. So that “woke” SJWs like him can get hundred million dollar contracts. Guess when you are getting paid millions by Nike, your “wokeness” only goes the fake-way. Like LeBron Queen James too. Colin is a dummy. And a hypocrite Marxist to boot. Besides washing out of the NFL for literally sucking at his job in historical fashion, and then blaming “rasism” to the dumbest sheep.

  4. Regardless of where you stand that’s not the United states of America flag we use today we are not 13 states of the Confederate

  5. The problem with liberals is that they want everyone to follow their standards, but they don’t believe in following their own standards. If that was the case they should abolish the democratic party for their once long time support of the KKk, Slavery and Jim Crow.

    • buddits really should abolish the entire system and come together as all under a new constitution buuut who am I kidding, people aren’t fighting for change, they’re fighting for comfort

  6. Some people big mad lmao thought they were already boycotting?? Now they’re just looking for things to get triggered over

    • Well im not boycotting because i never bought there overly expensive shoe in the first place.

  7. Yea the constitution was made during slavery… meaning the constitution wasn’t meant for and has nothing to do with people of African decent. So until that constitution is shredded Amerikkka will forever be racist towards blacks.

  8. I want nothing to do with black ppl any more I’m done he started the race war it all began with him

    • TheFreedomvirus lol so he represents an entire race right? But 6 same color school shooters don’t? Alrighty mate the war started in your head with YOU

  9. Obama had this flag behind him at his inauguration, but now it’s racist.

  10. Having too much fun? Kaepercuck to the rescue! Those were some sweet kicks, though.
