“We fight for our freedom, and we continue on that path.”
In what the San Francisco Chronicle is celebrating as a “surprise appearance” on Thursday, former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick dropped in on the so-called “Unthanksgiving Day” festival put on by the Alcatraz Indigenous People’s group to deliver a message of “resistance.”
The festival, which has been held since 1975 in commemoration of the occupation of Alcatraz by 89 activists in 1969-71, is designed to protest America’s mistreatment of Native Americans. In his comments at the festival, Kaepernick said his fight for what he has described as the systemic oppression of “black people and people of color” in America and the “Unthanksgiving” activists’ cause is all a part of the same “resistance.”
Kaepernick, who was accompanied by a camera crew, tweeted out a video documenting his call for continued activism and the honor bestowed up him by the leadership of the indigenous people’s group.
“Today, I was on Alcatraz Island at the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering, in solidarity with those celebrating their culture and paying respects to those that participated in the 19 month occupation of Alcatraz in an effort to force us to honor the Treaty of Fort Laramie,” he tweeted.

Everybody’s a victim anymore…except white males. Apparently we are responsible for everything bad in America and perhaps the entire world. They’re still completing the research on the latter but preliminary results show that we are responsible for EVERYTHING wrong with EVERYTHING. – The Liberator
