Colin Kaepernick made waves this weekend by choosing to stay seated during the national anthem before the start of a preseason football game.
The protest has been criticized far and wide. While many grant that it’s Kaepernick’s free speech right to do so — the 49ers organization said as much in its statement — many others are taking issue with his decision.
Consider the video by “life long 49ers fan” Shane White.
“He says he’s oppressed, making $126 million,” White said. “Well, Colin, here’s my salute to you. Here’s my salute to you sitting on the bench for the rest of the year; sitting while you pee for the rest of your life; my salute to you.”
White then set Kaepernick’s jersey on fire, removed his hat, put his hand over his heart and played the national anthem.
Truly a “fiery response.”
I'll let the video speak for itself. From a life long 49ers fan. #4everfaithful #GoNiners.Posted by Shane White on Saturday, August 27, 2016
