Colin Kaepernick Shows Up At ‘Unthankgiving Day’ And Calls For ‘Resistance’ – VIDEO

The San Francisco Chronicle called it a “surprising appearance” on Thursday when Colin Kaepernick shows up at “Unthanksgiving Day.” The purpose of the festival was to deliver a message of “resistance” and it was put on by the Alcatraz Indigenous People’s group.

Per Daily Wire:

The festival, which has been held since 1975 in commemoration of the occupation of Alcatraz by 89 activists in 1969-71, is designed to protest America’s mistreatment of Native Americans. In his comments at the festival, Kaepernick said his fight for what he has described as the systemic oppression of “black people and people of color” in America and the “Unthanksgiving” activists’ cause is all a part of the same “resistance.”

Kaepernick, who was accompanied by a camera crew, tweeted out a video documenting his call for continued activism and the honor bestowed up him by the leadership of the indigenous people’s group.

“Today, I was on Alcatraz Island at the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering, in solidarity with those celebrating their culture and paying respects to those that participated in the 19 month occupation of Alcatraz in an effort to force us to honor the Treaty of Fort Laramie,” he tweeted.

In case you forgot, Colin Kaepernick started the NFL anthem protest during the 2016 season. He told reporters he’s, “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

He has since filed a lawsuit against the league for “collusion” among league executives to keep him out of the league. It is more a case of him being a borderline NFL talent that is simply not worth the headaches he will bring.
