Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is the antithesis of ‘grateful.’
The one-time signal-caller took to Twitter on the Fourth of July to take another giant crap on our country — the nation that gave him an opportunity to realize his dream of playing professional football until he decided to go all Left-wing activist on us.
“Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of 'independence', while you enslaved our ancestors. We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all,” he wrote on Twitter.

Whatever. By now, most Americans are well aware of this ungrateful so-and-so’s opinion on the ‘issues of the day.’
What’s patently disgusting and pathetic is that the American company that hired him as a ‘spokesperson’ — Nike — has remained silent.
Breitbart adds some reminders about Nike and its relationship with the original NFL kneeler:
Nike has a history of tolerating Kaepernick's radical activism and frequent attacks on America, especially on the 4th of July. Just prior to the Independence Day holiday last year, news broke that Kaepernick had convinced Nike to ditch the 'Betsy Ross Flag' sneakers that the company had produced to commemorate the nation's founding. As it turns out, Kaepernick had reached out to Nike company officials saying that 'he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery.'
Shortly following Kaepernick's complaint, Nike asked retailers to return the shoes.
For the record, Mr. Social Justice Warrior wasn’t always an over anti-American schmuck who thought our independence from the tyrannical king of Great Britain back in the day was a bad thing.
Here are a couple of July 4th tweets from 2011 and 2012, respectively.

My, how things change when you can’t get a player contract after becoming a distraction in the locker room.

Are backed-up supply chains adding to the dilemma of bad policy?
You can't afford NOT to be prepared for the coming financial reset
