Colin Kaepernick’s first start of the 2016 NFL season didn’t get off to a great start, and many of the issues surrounded his national anthem protests.
Despite rumors suggesting such, Kaepernick has not converted to Islam.
There has been plenty of controversy surrounding the national anthem protests, started by Kaepernick to take a stand against the oppression of “black people and people of color.”
