Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick put out a tweet on November 19 (the same day that Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted) that said: “We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist.”

Kaepernick did not name any individual in his tweet.

In a November 19 news story on the acquittal, the New York Times said: “Kyle Rittenhouse was cleared of criminal culpability in the shooting of three white men, two of them fatally, during protests on Aug. 25, 2020.”

The complete text of Colin Kaepernick’s November 19 tweet said: “We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist. This only further validates the need to abolish our current system. White supremacy cannot be reformed.”
