T-shirts Were Sold Outside Bills Game With Rifle Sight On Kaepernick (IMAGES)

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick again took to his knee during the national anthem in Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, but before that, a loud chant of “USA, USA” could be heard at the stadium from those offended by his right to silently protest against racial inequality.

The chants weren’t even the worst thing on display. Just outside of the stadium, t-shirts were being sold with an image of Kaepernick with a rifle sight on him. The text on the t-shirt reads, “Wanted” and “Notorious Disgrace to America.”

Another t-shirt reads, “Shut Up And Stand Up!” along with the quarterback’s last name spelled ‘Kaeperdick’ and an image of him.

Robert Klempko of MMQB tweeted, “Shirts with a rifle scope trained on Colin Kaepernick selling for $10 outside of Ralph Wilson stadium.”

It gets even worse:

Elsewhere outside the stadium, one group of fans were hitting a dummy wearing a Kaepernick jersey and an afro wig. Per Klemko, one fan, yelled, “Tackle the Muslim.”

That ugly display was captured on video and so was this incident:

Klempko wrote in a following tweet, ‘FWIW: Guy walking past this scene cupped his hands around his mouth and yelled, “THIS JUST MAKES BUFFALO LOOK BAD!”‘

While conservatives consider Kaepernick’s continued protest over racial inequality and oppression in the United States to be unpatriotic, they probably also think descending on Washington D.C. with t-shirts describing America’s first black president as a scary black Kenyan is patriotic.

“I don’t understand what’s un-American about fighting for liberty and justice for everybody, for the equality this country says it stands for,” Kaepernick said after the game. “To me, I see it as very patriotic and American to uphold the United States to the standards that it says it lives by.”

But Kaepernick was not alone. Outside the stadium, African-Americans and whites knelt in solidarity with the quarterback’s cause.

On a good note, Kaepernick said death threats are “rare occurrences now.” On a bad note, he never should have received death threats in the first place.
