Get more on Colin Kaepernick Jersey being the top selling Jersey in the NFL…
We guess if you stand for something celebs will follow! First President Obama’s supports Kaepernick and now the nation is starting to stand behind him
We told you that Colin Kaepernick sitting down spoke LOUDER than any speech, tweet or Instagram post by any of the celebs, rappers and athletes. And now Kaepernick jersey is the hottest item on the NFL Shop’s website. The red version of his San Francisco 49ers jersey is listed for $99 and holds the number one spot on the site’s list of top selling jerseys.
The boom in sales follows Kaepernick’s decision to sit during a singing of the national anthem on August 26. All it took was having Kaepernick sit down during the national anthem. Plus having him say that he couldn’t “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” had BlackLivesMatters supporter dishing out their loot. They are showing their support for Kap, by buying his jersey.
Since Kap’s sit down other athletes are following his movement. Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane sat in a show of support. Kaepernick’s teammate Eric Reid and soccer star Megan Rapinoe took a knee while the national anthem was performed before their games.
Kaepernick, who is bi-racial and was adopted and raised by a white family, eventually addressed the public response and said he wasn’t anti-American. He also donated $1 million to charity.
News of the surge in Kaepernick’s jersey sales was met with a flurry of activity on social media. Susan Sarandon jumped on the Colin Kaepernick train posting this tweeting on her feed:
With memes like continuing to surface on social media it’s no wonder more people will come out to support. The photo of a black man saying it hurts to an Indian who had their land taken from them after they trusted the pilgrims.
It’s clear that police are oppressing the black community again like in the 60s, 50s, 40s and so on. The 70s, 80s, 90s took major steps toward equality. Then Trump started running for President and racial injustice is at an all time high. #WakeUpAmerica vote Hillary Clinton and STOP OPPRESSION!
If Trump is in office we wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t bring back segregation again. The photo below speaks LOUD on Colin Kaepernick’s behalf:
Over the weekend, Trey Songz and J Cole showed support by rocking Kaepernick jerseys (now the best-selling NFL jersey on the market) at their respective performances over the weekend.
