Kaepernick Speaks His Mind In Anti-American Rant
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick traveled home to Ghana to discuss his views on America’s Independence Day.
During his visit, the former 49er tweeted out his disgust for the United States.
“How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors to theirs? To find my independence, I went “home,” wrote Kaepernick while visiting the foreign land.
When Kaepernick first made the headlines off the field, he was attacking police officers and praising Marxist tyrant, Fidel Castro.

Yahoo Sports writes:
“If the NFL is waiting for Colin Kaepernick to give in to some ridiculous notion that he must tell the world he’s focused on playing football and nothing else, that’s not going to happen. Kaepernick remains unsigned, but he’s not letting it affect his life. On July 4, Kaepernick posted on social media about his trip “home” to Ghana.”
“Is posting all of this on July 4 a bit defiant, especially after San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said in a recent radio interview he told Kaepernick: “I think you are having a little bit of an image crisis in terms of, not so much what you did last year, but people are wondering: Is this most important to you?”

Kaepernick’s full rant read:
“In a quest to find my personal independence, I had to find out where my ancestors came from. I set out tracing my African ancestral roots, and it lead me to Ghana. Upon finding out this information, I wanted to visit the sites responsible for myself (and many other Black folks in the African Diaspora) for being forced into the hells of the middle passage. I wanted to see a fraction of what they saw before reaching the point of no return.”
“I spent time with the/my Ghanaian people, from visiting the local hospital in Keta and the village of Atito, to eating banku in the homes of local friends, and paying my respects to Kwame Nkrumah’s Memorial Park. “I felt their love, and truly I hope that they felt mine in return.”
