In September 2014, then Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, also known as RGIII, was forced by NFL officials to turn the t-shirt he wore to a post-game press conference inside out. There was nothing vulgar or inappropriate about RGIII’s t-shirt message. In fact, it had an uplifting, Christian message. But, the NFL told him he could not wear the shirt because it was not licensed NFL apparel. It should be noted that this also took place as the war against Christianity was ramping up with Christian business owners being sued by not intolerant homosexual activists and the government.
Fast forward to November 2016 as Black Lives Matter anarchists have wreaked havoc on communities with their violent destruction and outright called for the murder of police officers. San Francisco 49ers bi-racial quarterback Colin Kaepernick is working overtime to become a leader in the racist movement while simultaneously turning the NFL into an anti-America demonstration.
After the San Francisco 49ers spanking by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34 – 17, Kaepernick, who was recently named the starter after being benched for the beginning of the season, appeared at his official press conference wearing a Black Panther Party t-shirt.

So, one black quarterback is forced to turn his positive Christian message t-shirt inside out after being told he could not wear it because it was not authorized NFL apparel but another biracial (black and white) quarterback is allowed to wear a divisive, hate mongering t-shirt to make a racial statement at his official press conference.
Kaepernick started the season by refusing to stand with his hand over his heart for the National Anthem. The multi-millionaire man of color insisted that he will not honor the flag of a country that oppresses black people and people of color. After making that statement, Kaepernick appeared at an official NFL press conference wearing a t-shirt featuring Malcolm X and one of the biggest oppressors to exist, Cuban communist butcher Fidel Castro.
With stunts like this, the NFL will continue to be at risk of losing more fans who are turned off by not only the anti-America protests by rich football players during the National Anthem as they cry oppression while at the same time sanctioning the hate mongering, racial supremacist message of Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panthers.
