San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick feels that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is openly racist and that Hillary Clinton has broken the law.

“You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who’s openly racist. We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?,” Kaepernick told the media. (RELATED: Hookstead’s Hot Take: America Stood Up For Colin Kaepernick, He Should Stand For The Flag)
