After miserably failing to entice an NFL team to sign him at his workout stunt this month, former NFL ingrate Colin Kaepernick celebrated an “Unthanksgiving Day” event where he accused America of racism and genocide.
On Thanksgiving Day, the ungrateful Kaepernick, who became a millionaire playing football, celebrated his hate for America at an event on Alcatraz Island off the coast of San Francisco, California.
The racist former NFL player proudly tweeted, “Spent the morning at the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Ceremony on the 50-year anniversary of the Occupation of Alcatraz. The US government has stolen over 1.5 billion acres of land from Indigenous people. Thank you to my Indigenous family, I’m with you today and always.”

Extremist, left-wing, America-hating Mother Jones magazine explained the event:
Native Americans in northern California gather annually for a sunrise ceremony, called “Unthanksgiving Day,” on Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay. This year’s gathering, though, was special: It marked 50 years since Bay Area Natives, having left reservations and flocked to cities, staked a claim to Alcatraz (where the infamous federal prison was decommissioned in 1963). On November 20, 1969, Indigenous activists began their 19-month occupation of the island—a watershed moment for Native organizing that pushed President Richard Nixon to end the brutal “termination” era, during which over 100 tribes lost federal assistance. The occupation sparked a chain reaction of radical organizing that continues to this day.
While remembering that occupation, Unthanksgiving Day also honors a much more expansive legacy of Indigenous resistance, one spanning more than 500 years.
In Kaepernick’s video, the out-of-work footballer said, “It’s been 50 years since the occupation, and that struggle has continued for that 50 years, before that 50 years, it will continue from this point. It’s our responsibility to honor our ancestors and honor our elders by carrying on that struggle. Don’t let their sacrifices be in vain. That’s why it’s important for all of us to be here today, to show that we’re together, that we’re unified, that we have that solidarity. And I hope to spend many more of these with you.”
The petulant “Unthanksgiving Day” nonsense comes only two weeks after Kaepernick was given the opportunity to show his football skills to a large group of NFL teams in a workout sponsored by the NFL… an opportunity he promptly ducked by refusing to attend.
Instead, Kaepernick held his own workout at a nearby Atlanta high school where he paraded around in a t-shirt comparing himself to a slave.
The dude is worth millions. And he thinks he’s a slave.
