Kaepernick was in his ancestral home of Ghana (he discovered using a DNA test last year that Nigeria and Ghana are his biological homelands via his father) yesterday as part of his mission to learn more about his past and culture.
He wrote on Twitter along with a video “How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs? To find my independence I went home.”
