"T$3 here's no question that Colin Kaepernick is justified with his anger and disgust, considering the fact that Philando Castile, the police officer got away with a not guilty verdict considering he shot this guy in the auto when the guy wasn't a threat".

That in itself isn't too inflammatory, but the accompanying image of a police badge pictured alongside a "runaway slave patrol" badge riled many people.

In a June 16 tweet, Kaepernick said, "A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without effect, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!" Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, streamed live video of Castile's dying moments onto Facebook.

Jeronimo Yanez was also acquitted of two counts of intentional discharge of a firearm that endangers safety. My son loved this city, and this city killed my son, ' she said.

Speaking after the verdict, Castile's mother, Valerie Castile, said her son was "murdered".

Many Kaepernick supporters believe the NFL is punishing the quarterback for drawing unwanted attention on the league when he began a controversial protest past year, refusing to stand for the national anthem before games.

"The system continues to fail black people", she said.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color", Kaepernick explained.
