Former NFL Quarterback-Turned-BLM Activist Colin Kaepernick Slams Parents, Says Upbringing ‘Problematic’ Due To ‘Racism’

If you thought failed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who sold his soul out to become a political activist with Marxist group Black Lives Matter, was classless before, wait until you read what he had to say about his parents and how they perpetuated racism. This guy is a real piece of work, isn’t he?

Kaepernick recently sat down to do an interview with CBS News to promote his brand new graphic novel, “Change the Game,” which aired Thursday. The half-white, half-black activist put his parents, Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, on blast during the conversation. It’s important to point out the couple adopted him when he was just an infant. Gee, they must be real proud of the grifter their son has turned out to be.

“I know my parents loved me, but there were still very problematic things that I went through,” the ex-NFL quarterback said during the interview, according to TheBlaze.

“To demonstrate just how ‘problematic’ his upbringing was, Kaepernick, now 35, cited a disagreement he had with his parents while he was still a teenager. He claimed he wanted to wear his hair in cornrows to emulate the style of his idol, NBA star Allen Iverson, but his mother supposedly objected,” the report revealed.

“According to his graphic novel, said to be autobiographical, when she heard how Colin wanted to style his hair, Teresa Kaepernick angrily replied, ‘He’s getting what rolls?’ Other accounts indicate that she simply just stated that such a hairstyle was ‘not professional’ and that it made him look ‘like a little thug,'” TheBlaze said.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback then explained that these kind of differences of opinion were evidence of racism. Yes, because she didn’t want her son to look like he rolled off the street as some ghetto gangster that makes her racist. Good grief.

“I think it was important to show that, no, this can happen in your own home, and how we move forward collectively while addressing the racism that is being perpetuated,” the BLM activist stated. Kaepernick also said that he still keeps his hair long to this very day because of the incident.

Nothing says maturity like attempting to defy your adoptive mother decades after an incident involving a difference of opinion in hairstyle. How about all of the goth and metal kids who catch grief from mom and dad because they want to dye their hair, grow it out, or shave it into a mohawk? This isn’t just a “black thing.” It’s not because of race, it’s cultural, part of the age gap that exists between parents and their children.

“Kaepernick, who hasn’t been featured on an NFL roster in nearly seven years, has a long history of accusing others of racism. When he infamously began taking a knee during the national anthem in the last season of his career, he claimed he was doing so to protest racist cops,” TheBlaze added.

“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 remarked with disdain after a preseason game in August 2016. “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.”

Just to show how you how far down the Marxist rabbit hole Kaepernick has fallen, he’s compared the NFL draft to slavery and filed a grievance against the league, allegedly stating he was being blackballed due to his active participation in activism. The athlete accepted a settlement of $10 million from the NFL back in 2019, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.
