Colin Kaepernick blasted after accusing white adoptive parents of ‘perpetuating racism’.
Colin Kaepernick has come under fire on social media after accusing his white adoptive parents of “perpetuating racism” in an interview with CBS News on Thursday.
In particular, Kaepernick opened up about his differences with his white parents. He called the disagreements “problematic” and attributed them to racism.
The former 49er cited a story in which his adoptive mother was concerned about his decision to braid his hair into cornrows like one of her favorite NBA players, Allen Iverson.
After braiding his hair, Kaepernick’s mother warned him that his hair would not look “professional” and “a little thuggish.”
Kaepernick told CBS News, “These spaces are like, ‘Okay, how do I navigate the situation now?’ turns into a space. But it also explained why my hair was long.
Twitter users protested the NFL anthem, accusing him of being disgruntled for attacking a couple who took him to his home.

So Colin Kaepernick now complains that his parents were “problematic” because they didn’t want him to have corn rows.
The same parents kept you out of the orphanage, and if that’s your biggest problem, you’ll easily overcome it. Kaepernick is nothing but a spoiled brat.

I’m sick of Colin Kaepernick’s bullshit. Does she blame her white adoptive parents for perpetuating racism? Here’s a young black boy, lucky enough to be adopted, his family gave him everything they could give you, and this is how you pay them back? Blah to you Kaepernick

Their family is probably heartbroken that he continues to attack them.

Everyone has forgotten that Colin Kaepernick exists again, so now he’s hurting for the attention of his adoptive parents.

Of course it does.
It’s been at least 7 weeks since he paid attention. Maybe he is hungry now.

Colin Kaepernick has now called the police, the NFL, his tennis shoes, his country and even his parents racist. Next pet? Maybe, maybe not. But it should not be ignored.
