National anthem protester and NFL ‘star’, Colin Kaepernick, has now come out protesting America’s independence.
The mixed race athlete, who was raised by white adoptive parents in Milwaukee, posted a video clip Tuesday of his visit to Ghana.
The caption with that video takes issue with the 4th of July celebrations in the U.S.
He tweeted: How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs? To find my independence I went home.
Bet his family in Milwaukee didn’t appreciate that last statement.
Images of him and his wife, Nessa, visiting the Cape Coast Castle open the clip; showing the male and female slave dungeons, then the ‘door of no return’.
Kaepernick states in a voiceover, ‘What have I, or those I represent, to do with your [snidely stated] national independence?’
Then it cuts to the Municipal Hospital of Keta, the hospitals children’s ward, a ceremonial meal – with dancing, music and playing dress up – and the Kaepernicks putting dirt in a bucket to help lay foundation for a structure (probably a home).

The video ends with this image:
Basically, Kaepernick did a self-glorified trip with his wife to a third world country in Africa, to make himself feel better.
Quite honestly though, there is a reason he returned to America.
We are the land of the free and home of the brave. Opportunity abounds here.
Good luck trying to get paid millions of dollars for throwing pig-skin in Ghana, Kaepernick.
Or even smack talking their government.
