Watch: Colin Kaepernick Says Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Were Trying to 'Debate Who's Less Racist'

The 49ers' QB had more to say about the presidential candidates.

Published September 28th

Like many Americans, Colin Kaepernick isn't thrilled about either presidential candidate — Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

In speaking with a pool of reporters Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback said that he tuned into a little bit of the presidential debate Monday night and that it was "embarrassing to watch that [Clinton and Trump] are our two presidential candidates."

"Both are proven liars and it almost seems like they're trying to debate who's less racist," Kaepernick said.

The 28-year-old QB also doesn't buy into the idea of voting for the lesser of two evils, reasoning that "in the end, it's still evil."

Talk to them, Kaep!

Colin also used his time with the media Tuesday to slam Trump for suggesting that the QB find a country that works better for him just because of his national anthem protest of racism and violence in America.

"He always says, 'Make America Great Again,'" Kaepernick said of the Republican presidential candidate. "Well, it's never been great for people of color."

Salute to Kaepernick for continuing to speak his mind about many social issues, despite the backlash — and even death threats — that have come his way.
