Kaepernick Joins Thanksgiving Day Protest

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick participated in an ‘Un-Thanksgiving Day’ protest on Alcatraz where he joined a Native American protest on Thanksgiving day.

The Indigenous People’s Sunrise Ceremony marked the 50th anniversary of the Occupation of Alcatraz by Native Americans.

Actor Danny Glover also joined Kaepernick and participated in the ‘Un-Thanksgiving Day’ protest.

Kaepernick promoted his Thanksgiving protest on Twitter where he stated, “The US government has stolen over 1.5 billion acres of land from Indigenous people.”

The former NFL quarterback also retweeted a Washington Post “perspective” piece that claimed Thanksgiving is rooted in racism against blacks.

Before his Thanksgiving protest, Kaepernick conducted a workout to try to get back into the NFL.

But at the last minute, Kaepernick changed the location of his tryout.

CBS News reported on Kaepernick’s controversial workout.

Kaepernick used Twitter to thank his supporters for his workout.

Kaepernick’s actions show his brand is controversy which is far from what NFL teams want in players.
