Colin Kaepernick was ahead of the game

He was wearing socks in defiance of the San Francisco police a while back

9:40 PMWhile everyone was screaming about how San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was way out of line for sitting during the national anthem in a game last week, he’d already made a point that many had missed. In protest of police behavior, he wore socks with pigs depicting police on them. No one noticed. That wasn’t until recently when he decided to take a public stance against the United States flag by sitting during the national anthem. Mind you, even that first happened nearly a month ago.

This is important for two reasons. Clearly his team and his coach knew that this subject had been on his mind for some time. For those of you in the “you just don’t do it that way” argument in reference to his sitting during The Star-Spangled Banner, welp, he tried this way first. Secondly, clearly his team and his coach knew about it, so if you’re going to pile on, it’s only fair that criticism extend to the 49ers organization for allowing such blatantly disrespectful rationally demonstrative behavior.

Kaepernick issued a statement about the matter Thursday afternoon.

Oh, and if you want those socks, you can get them here. And before you go screaming on your social media account, don’t forget what the San Francisco Police Department has been up to recently.
