Caroline Sikes of Sporting News reports that Kaepernick has been posting anti-discrimination messages on Instagram, such as this one: Racism and discrimination isn’t OK we are all human beings! Things need to change!
Along with this message, Kaepernick juxtaposed images of an anti-Black sign from 1925, an anti-Japanese sign from 1942, and an anti-Muslim sign from 2015.
He furthermore explained: You are 35,079 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack.
Kaepernick’s Christmas reminder is equally potent. He posts that the Nativity is about “a Middle Eastern couple seeking refuge and shelter,” and then asks: Will you discriminate against the same people you are about to celebrate?
