“Colin Kaepernick is great.
Cops are pigs, cops are pigs.
Wait, someone just took my stuff, I need to call the cops.
Oh, no, I just said cops are pigs.
Who’s gonna help me get my stuff?
Why did I listen to Colin Kaepernick, He’s not even any good.
Oh, I just got all my stuff back
Cops are pigs again, cops are pigs.
Colin Kaepernick’s a good backup…”
The controversy surrounding Colin started when he refused to stand during the national anthem at the Aug. 26 San Francisco 49ers game. He said he was not going to “show pride in a flag for country that oppresses black people and people of color.” He has not stood for any rendition of the national anthem since.
