Colin Kaepernick mural goes up in Oakland

Folks in the Town showing some love for the 49ers quarterback.

Opinions remain divided about Colin Kaepernick’s National Anthem protest, and the movement it has started to spawn. But in Oakland, someone offered up support in the form of a pretty awesome mural. Pendarvis Harshaw was walking through downtown Oakland when he came across a mural from an unknown artist.

Support for Colin Kaepernick has grown, and we have seen numerous people wearing his jersey in public settings. I have even seen Raiders fans say they would consider wearing his jersey. Considering the 49ers-Raiders fan rivalry, that’s saying something in a big way.

We have no idea whether or not the artist is a Raiders fan, or even a football fan. This transcends football in a big way, and this kind of thing reflects that. Here’s a picture of the mural. Below this one is a color version.
