#ColinKaepernick KNEELS for national anthem this time with his AFRO intact! [vid]

Colin Kaepernick is continuing his boycott of the National Anthem.  In Thursday night's game Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem.

On Sunday, Kaepernick vowed to continue sitting during the national anthem until he was satisfied with the changes made toward racial oppression in the United States. If this is the case, it appears he will be sitting or kneeling for the entire season.

For the rest of the night, the San Diego Chargers celebrated their "Salute to the Military" night for the 28th year with various tributes to the troops throughout. Kaepernick knelt during the anthem, applauded veterans and active military during a first-half break with Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" playing and stood for a rendition of "God Bless America," clapping at the end of that as well.
"Once again, I'm not anti-American," Kaepernick said. "I love America. I love people. That's why I'm doing this. I want to help make America better. I think having these conversations helps everybody have a better understanding of where everybody is coming from.
"Those conversations are important to have because the better we understand each other, the better we know each other, the better we can deal and communicate with each other which ultimately makes everyone, puts everybody in a better position."

After the game, Kaepernick spent time signing autographs for a large contingent of 49ers fans who stuck around until the end of the Niners' 31-21 win in the preseason finale. He then spoke to the media for more than 16 minutes, announcing that he plans to donate the first $1 million he makes this year to help communities in need as part of his plan to take a more active role in combating racial inequality.

"It was something I was thinking about to try to make sure that I'm not just talking about something but I'm actively being involved and actively trying to make a change in these communities and I've been very blessed to be in this position and be able to make the kind of money I do and I have to help these people," Kaepernick said. "I have to help these communities. It's not right that they're not put in the position to succeed or given those opportunities to succeed."

So if you had DOUBTS of his heritage, Colin is now sporting a pretty HEFTY Afro too.  He's letting all the critics know that he is INDEED, BLACK enough!

Let's see what he does next, right?
