NEW ORLEANS — NFL players are continuing to show support to former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. They don’t seem to give a crap what their fans may think. On a day where people would rather be talking about the two records that Saints quarterback Drew Brees smashed in their big win over the Washington Redskins, they’re talking about Alvin Kamara.
He’s the New Orleans Saints star running back and he’s making waves because of a jersey and hat he wore after the big game. Yep, he decided that it would be a good idea to put the spotlight on himself and show his support for former 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, by wearing his jersey. It doesn’t stop there, he was also wearing a “Make Africa Home Again” red cap. Via the propaganda outlet Yahoo.com Sports,
“The New Orleans Saints running back stepped out for interviews after a win over the Washington Redskins wearing a San Francisco 49ers jersey and a hat reading “Make Africa Home Again,” posing for an image shared by The New Orleans Times Picayune’s Josh Katzenstein. Why the 49ers jersey? It was a Colin Kaepernick jersey, of course. In a season where sideline protests of social injustice during the national anthem have been fewer alongside dampened controversy over the subject, Kamara’s is one of the most powerful statements yet.”
Yahoo Sports NFL official Twitter page proudly tweeted the picture of Kamara,

Several Twitter users responded to the Yahoo Sports tweet, like user Danielle Folk who had some unsolicited advice for the superstar running back,
Then go to Africa if you want that to be your home. No one is keeping you here and you seem to have the funds to make the move easily.
