In 2016 quarterback Colin Kaepernick gained national attention when he kneeled against the oppression of non-white races.   He did this during the singing of the national anthem, prompting racists to say he was protesting against the US Military. 

I was a soldier and I did not feel that way. 

He is now a free agent and still a special athlete.  He was drafted second round in 2011 by the San Francisco 49ers.   He currently does not have a team while the Baltimore Ravens are considering his employee. 

He currently has a passer rating of 88.9

Do you believe the player standing up against racial oppression is the only reason he does not have a team?
