After seven years, Colin Kaepernick, a former quarterback in the NFL, is still pleading with the league to let him off the hook.

 Even Google admits he’s just an "American civil rights activist," not a quarterback. Not anymore. The perennial whiner had a subpar season in 2015 and ended it injured.

He made his mark in the 2016 preseason refusing to stand for the national anthem during the game against Green Bay.

That’s when he proceeded to slam the nation that also made him a millionaire.  

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color," he said after the game.

He went from sitting to kneeling and created a fracture between the league and its fans as other players joined in.
