Watch Colin Kaepernick get booed by crowd in Miami5 minute read
This is so satisfying. I really dislike Colin Kaepernick, after what he has been doing to disrespect our country and the people who fought for our freedom.

But earlier this week, in case you missed it, on Friday Colin Pencilneck wore a controversial shirt with Fidel Castro on it during a press conference. Below is an excerpt of the conversation.
When pressed about the shirt, Kaepernick first pointed out that Malcolm X also was pictured. Kaepernick said he supports Malcolm X and his willingness to be “open-minded” before forming his own views of the world. Part of that open-mindedness, he said, was meeting with the Cuban leader.
But when The Miami Herald reporter repeatedly asked about Castro specifically, Kaepernick said, “I’m not talking about Fidel Castro and his oppression. I’m talking about Malcolm X and what he’s done for people.” The reporter, from a family of Cuban exiles, then accused Kaepernick of diverting the conversation because it was “uncomfortable” to talk about perceived support of Castro. At that point, Kaepernick said, “One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that.”
The reporter said Castro also broke up families, unlike what occurs in the United States. “We do break up families here,” Kaepernick said. “That’s what mass incarceration is. That was the foundation of slavery so our country has been based on that as well as the genocide of native Americans.” Kaepernick was asked if he was equating incarceration with breaking up families. “I’m equating the breaking up of families with the breaking up of families,” he said.
So it’s only expected for the fans in Miami to be upset with Colin, especially since Castro just passed yesterday! Thousands of Miami-Cuban citizens were parading in the streets in celebration of Castro’s dead.Follow us!
