Colin Kaepernick’s response to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Colin Kaepernick struck back at Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who this week called the quarterback’s national anthem protest “dumb” and “disrespectful.”

“It is disappointing to hear a Supreme Court justice call a protest against injustices and oppression ‘stupid, dumb’ . . . . I was reading an article and it refers to white critique of black protests and how they try to de-legitimize it by calling it ‘idiotic, dumb, stupid,’ things of that nature, so they can sidestep the real issue. As I was reading that I saw more and more truth how this has been approached by people in power and white people in power in particular.”
