“I have two uncles and friends who are police officers and work to protect and serve ALL people.”
Earlier today, photos surfaced of Colin Kaepernick taking the practice field in a pair of socks that featured pigs dressed up as cops. These pictures were actually taken before his decision to sit during the National Anthem, but they still served as a means for him to bring awareness to his cause.
The pictures were going viral, and we knew it was only a matter of time before he was questioned about them. Moments ago, Kaepernick took the time to release the statement below which he posted on his instagram account @Kaepernick7.
