NFL Star Under Attack After Disrespecting America - He's Keeping A Big Secret

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is getting a lot of heat over his decision to remain seated during the National Anthem in protest of “oppression” of black people in America.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said, according to Mad World News.

What Kaepernick seems to have forgotten was he was raised by two white people. Phyllis and James Zabranskyare adopted Kaepernick at a young age when his biological parents couldn't handle the burden of raising a child. Which has led many to speculate on how much 'oppression' he's actually lived through.

"To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way,” said Kaepernick, according to NFL.com. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

Kaepernick’s coach said he has a “right as a citizen” to not stand for the anthem.

"It's not my right to tell him not to do something,” said Niners coach Chip Kelly, according to NFL.com.

His team also supported his decision to exercise his right to freedom of speech.

"The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony,” the team said in a statement. “It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose and participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem."
