For the 4th of July, Colin Kaepernick travels "home" to Ghana to find his own "personal independence." The former NFL QB continues to dig himself a hole.

The free agent quarterback posted a video on Twitter. He asked the questions, "How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs?"

Colin Kaepernick Travels "Home" to Ghana

He also took to Instagram to share his message. He posted a longer video there, along with a quote from Frederick Douglass. Part of it was explaining why he needed to go "home" to Ghana to get more information on where his ancestors came from.

Here is the message from his Instagram:

What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence?" - Frederick Douglass. 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.

Ever since the kneeling during the national anthem, Colin Kaepernick has been on a mission to destroy what is left of his NFL career. Just a few weeks ago he compared police officers to slave masters.
