Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who gained notoriety after refusing to stand for the National Anthem, traveled “home” to Ghana where he criticized the United States on the Fourth of July.
Kaepernick tweeted Tuesday, “How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs? To find my independence I went home,” and posted an accompanying video.
