Here Is What Caused Kaepernick Troubles With The NFL
Kaepernick was a star quarterback in the NFL from 2011-2016, being a 2-time Offensive player of the year in 2008 and 2010, having the NFL record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single game, and the NFL record for most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single postseason. But at the 3rd preseason game of the 2016 season, he was seen sitting down during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner”. When asked why he would sit down when the National Anthem was playing, he said,
”I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder”.
All hell broke loose afterward. But Kaepernick did not deter. Up until this point, Kaepernick has held fast to his beliefs. As a result, he has been fighting ever since to get back into the NFL football league.
