San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose decision to take a knee rather than stand during the national anthem at NFL games in protest of systemic racism has inspired both expressions of solidarity from fellow players and vitriolic criticism including death threats, had some harsh words Tuesday for the two major-party nominees.
Asked about his impressions on Monday’s debate between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Kaepernick said, “I watched a little bit of it, to me it was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates,” theMercury News reported.
He added Trump “always says, ‘Make America Great Again.’ Well, America’s never been great for people of color. And that’s something that needs to be addressed. Let’s make America great for the first time.”
