Qasim Rashid, a human rights lawyer and potential congressman in Illinois' District 11, criticized Rodgers and the sports world for his "right-wing conspiracies" and the role race plays in why he is treated differently from athletes like Colin Kaepernick.
Rashid pointed out that New York Jets gunslinger Aaron Rodgers is receiving a free pass from the media and fans because of his skin color, saying, “Can’t qwhite put my finger on why.”
Rashid compares him to former San Francisco 49ers dual-threat quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who last played in the NFL during the 2016 season. Kaepernick was also vocal on hot-button topics, including police brutality.
