NFL player Colin Kaepernick said in an interview "America has never been great" in retaliation to Donald Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again".
Colin Kaepernick is the black NFL millionaire for the San Francisco 49ers and in a statement released yesterday he said "Well America has never been great for people of color. That's something that needs to be addressed. Let's make America great for the first time."
Colin Kapernick is most noted and criticized for not standing during the national anthem at the NFL; an act which has caused him great shame from the national community as a sign of disrespecting the flag. He stated that it stands for "Equality" and justice (Read More on Kneeling during the National Anthem).
This latest statement has outraged members of the national community and members of the GOP (Republican party). Rush Limbaugh has been quoted as saying "He is entitled to his ignorance."
