Colin Kaepernick Spends Un-Thanksgiving With Native Americans

You would think a guy like Colin Kaepernick has enough money and notoriety to be busy doing anything he wants, could find something better to do on Thanksgiving than spreading more hate against America. But No! He’s stirring it up and on the holidays, no less.

Newsbusters has the details of Kaeprenick’s escapades:

Rather than express gratitude yesterday for all he’s been given, Kaepernick chose to attend the UnThanksgiving Day protest on Alcatraz Island to do what he does best: insult America. 

Kaepernick, the wealthy activist and baggage-laden former quarterback that no team in the NFL is desperate enough to sign, joined with 90 Native Americans to commemorate an occupation of Alcatraz that began in 1975. 

“Today, I was on Alcatraz Island at the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering, in solidarity with those celebrating their culture and paying respects to those that participated in the 19-month occupation of Alcatraz in an effort to force [the U.S.] to honor the Treaty of Fort Laramie,” Kaepernick tweeted.

Amid traditional dancing and speeches by Native Americans, “Kaepernick delivered a message of resistance and hope to the thousands gathered on the island,” gushed the San Francisco Chronicle’s Michelle Robertson:

Everybody gets 15 minutes of fame in their life, but maybe it’s time for Kaepernick to exit stage left.
