LOVE: Colin Kaepernick
Colin Kaepernick was born on November 3, 1987. He is an American football quarterback that is now a free agent. Kaepernick is biracial. He's African-American and White. He's known for being one of America's best football players and recently has made headlines for sitting/kneeling down during the national anthem of the United States. When asked why, he stated:
"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
The talented athlete remains unsigned. He filed a grievance against the NFL. He feels he's not been hired by any team as a form of retaliation for his beliefs. Despite that powerful figures tried muffling him, Colin Kaepernick refuses to stay mum. He started the Colin Kaepernick Foundation to educate, advocate, and fight oppression. Kaepernick is a strong believer of God (which is noticeable via his many tattoos referring to Bible verses). He's also a vegan. And is currently dating TV Host and radio personality, Nessa Diab.
