Colin Kaepernick Did Not Vote

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did not vote in the 2016 election. When asked if he had already voted Tuesday, Kaepernick told reporters no.

To me, it didn’t really matter who went in there. The system still remains intact that oppresses people of color.

During the NFL season, Kaepernick has made headlines for protesting the national anthem by sitting or kneeling while it is played before games.

Earlier this year, has also spoke about the 2016 presidential nominees, Republican President-elect Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

It was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates. Both are proven liars, and it almost seems like they’re trying to debate who’s less racist. At this point … you have to pick the lesser of two evils. But in the end, it’s still evil.

Sports commentator Stephen A. Smith said on ESPN’s “First Take.”

I don’t want to see him again, I don’t want to hear from him again, I don’t want to hear a damn word about anything that he has to say about our nation, the issues that we have, racial injustices, needing change. He comes across as a flaming hypocrite, as far as I’m concerned. … To turn around and not to even take your behind to the polls to vote for a particular candidate — it is shameful, absolutely shameful.
