After Wearing This Shirt To A Press Conference, Calls For Colin Kaepernick's Suspension Flooded In (Photos)

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has recently become a social justice warrior when he refused to stand for the national anthem at football games. As his team around him stood, hand on hearts, to pay tribute to their flag and their country, Kaepernick defiantly refused to rise, even though there are rumors that this may put an end to his football career. Before he gets too high and mighty, however, he might want to consider the mixed messages he's sending.

After Kaepernick took his stand by sitting, he spoke at a press conference to defend his political views. "I'm going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed," he said. "To me, this is something that has to change. When there's significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it's supposed to represent, this country is representing people the way that it's supposed to, I'll stand."

The irony is that while Kaepernick is taking a stand against America, he was wearing a t-shirt celebrating Fidel Castro.

Fidel Castro, former president of Cuba, supposedly promoted human rights. In reality, the socialist dictator's policies have suppressed free speech and expression, with censorship in Cuba running rampant. For a time, the former atheist even oppressed religious freedom. He's been accused of unfair trials, arbitrary imprisonment and extrajudicial executions.

Even though Castro is out of power, Cuba still struggles under the shadow his reign left behind. If Kaepernick thinks America no longer represents liberty, perhaps he should spend some time in Cuba to get a frame of reference.

Perhaps Kaepernick doesn't realize his shirt celebrates a man who oppressed people.
