Was the girlfriend behind his national anthem ‘sit-in’?

A sports blog suggested that the idea to remain seated during the playing of the national anthem didn’t come from San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but was actually the influence of his girlfriend, Nessa Diab.

Given her socialist leanings and her religion — Islam — sports gossip blog Terez Owens may have nailed a plausible guess.


“As the entire world knows by now, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in Friday’s pre-season game against Green Bay because he was protesting ‘black oppression’ in the United States,” the report said. “We’re now hearing that it was actually his girlfriend Nessa’s idea for Colin to protest. Colin and his girlfriend, Nessa Diab, an MTV DJ, are still planning an Islamic-style wedding.”

We’re going to leave this one in the “gossip” column for now . . .  with a suggestion that the two find their happy place in Cuba, maybe.

Diab has also shown support for Cuba’s Communist regime.

After playing his stunt Friday, he announced that he’ll “continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed,” (or something).

Although Kaepernick has received some support for his antics, including from Beyonce’s mother, most have been critical. Actor James Woods took the criticism to the next level by offering his blunt suggestion.
