Biracial NFL player Colin Kaepernick calls Chicago Bears player N-word, gets fined

San Francisco 49ers v Arizona Cardinals

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been fined for allegedly using the “N-word.” According to Fox Sports, Kaepernick used the racial slur after exchanging words with Lamarr Houston of the Chicago Bears.

After the two players exchanged words, Kaepernick was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. The NFL eventually fined Kaepernick $11,000 for using the slur.

Kaepernick, who is mixed with white and black, denies using the racial slur. Houston also denied that Kaepernick used the term.

After Riley Cooper, a white player for the Philadelphia Eagles, used the “N-word” at a concert in 2013, the NFL decided to ban the use of the racial slur on the field by any player regarding race.

Kaepernick and the NFL Player’s Association will appeal his fine.

    The nfl is sending the wrong message to our youth and hurting wives, daughters, sisters and children around the world…

    The NFL players in the article below (except Greg Hardy) are still playing even after being arrested for domestic violence… What does this say to our women and children?…What does it say about American morals?

    It is time to tell the nfl that placing greed before the welfare of women and children will not be tolerated in our society (nor will covering up such dispicable acts) … Boycott the nfl by boycotting all corporations that advertise during nfl games… Do it for your wives… o it for your daughters… do it for your sisters…do it for your children… do it for the morality of America.

    The NFL is a disgrace to the fabric of american morals and the human race… A money hungry morally corrupt monopoly played by millionaire wife/ child / animal abusers, rapist, steroid users, murderers and pretty boys who have hung up their jock straps for dresses while trying not to damage their million dollar peticures.The NFL (National Felons League) is damaging to the reputation of America and a shameful role model for our youth. It is time for a new football league to emerge so that we can end this corruption of American morals… called the NFL.
