San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he didn’t vote in the presidential election and that it didn’t matter to him who won because racial oppression would remain intact.
Republican candidate Donald Trump scored a stunning victory over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the election on Tuesday.
“I’ve been very disconnected from the systematic oppression as a whole,” Kaepernick said.
Kaepernick has refused to stand for the playing of the national anthem before games, citing racial injustices in the United States starting during the preseason. He has continued his protest through the regular season and says he won’t stop until there is significant progress.
“So, for me, it’s another face that’s going to be the face of that system of oppression,” Kaepernick said. “And to me, it didn’t really matter who went in there. The system still remains intact that oppresses people of color.”
