IFWT_Colin Kaepernick Heidi Russo

As I said before, just about everyone is speaking up and giving their opinion on Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the national anthem in protest over the treatment of minorities in the United States.  Many people have supported Kaepernick and agree with his stance, while others have strongly objected to his form of protest; his birth mother is part of the latter group.

Kaepernick’s birth mother Heidi Russo gave him up for adoption when he was a baby.  The Kaepernick’s that adopted Colin have always gone out of their way to make sure he grew up around black people and understood the other side of his heritage.  Thanks to them, he is the intelligent and brave individual we see today.

His birth mother Heidi Russo, has since given birth to three more children and got married.  She and Colin do not have a close relationship, and she thought it was okay to write him on Twitter to disagree with his protest.
