Colin Kaepernick Continues Speaking Out About Racism And Police Killings
We love that Colin Kaepernick has continued to be vocal about racism and the unjust killings of black and brown men at the hands of the police — despite being virtually blackballed for his outspoken views.
Friday, Colin Kaepernick responded to the acquittal of Jeronimo Yanez, the Minnesota cop who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year.
In a tweet that followed, which compared police officers to the fugitive slave patrols from over 150 years ago, Kaep urged his followers to know their history.
He also retweeted this message which revealed Castile had been stopped 46 times by police before his death!
Kaep posted several more posts from the same follower, all illuminating the link between America’s history of slavery and modern police.
What do you think about these comparisons?
