Colin Kaepernick will not stand for this!

The former San Francisco 49ers player has filed a grievance against NFL owners, claiming they colluded to keep him from playing this season.

According to a court filing obtained by ABC News, the athlete's agent has reached out to all 32 teams in the league to note his availability, but apparently has been avoided like the plague!

The 29-year-old, who hired attorney Mark Geragos instead of going through the NFL Players Association, believes his unemployment stems from his National Anthem protest last season, which led to Kaepernick severing his contract with the 49ers in March.

While the free-agent QB isn't in the league this season, his presence has taken over — players all across the NFL have been kneeling before games, sparking criticism from fans and controversy maven President Trump.

Despite the uprising he caused, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell denied in June that Kaepernick had been blackballed by owners. Instead, the commissioner postulated that Kap wasn't picked up by a team because there are more talented players out there!

Donald Trump LOVES to put his stamp on shit he had nothing to do with.

From the GOP's health care replacement to the already low unemployment rate under Barack Obama, the sitting POTUS has no qualms about taking credit where credit isn't due.

That self-involvement extended to Colin Kaepernick's current unemployment status when the president spoke at a rally on Monday night.

Trump was talking to the crowd in Louisville, Kentucky about the Republican health care overhaul and the nation's urban communities when, out of nowhere, he swerved into a completely unrelated topic on the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, saying:

#GrammysSoWhite?

While Frank Ocean released two of arguably the best albums of the year, don't expect him to walk away from the 2017 Grammy Awards with many trophies…

As you may already know, the Blonde and Endless singer intentionally missed the CBS event's September 30 cutoff date — and now he's explaining his decision to follow in Jada Pinkett Smith's Oscar boycott footsteps!

Speaking to The New York Times on Tuesday, Frank admitted that while he acknowledges the Recording Academy's good qualities, he simply could not justify supporting their inconsistencies when it comes to recognizing artists of color.

In fact, he even compared his own Grammys boycott to Colin Kaeperneck's iconic National Anthem protests, saying:

Way to help send us back to 1949, Colin…

Prior to Tuesday, Colin Kaepernick was easily seen as the most progressive player in the entire NFL — but unfortunately, that all changed on election night.

Despite championing the Black Lives Matter movement for months, the San Francisco '49ers quarterback dropped the ball when it came to electing Hillary Clinton to the Presidency this week… because we're hearing he didn't vote at all!

Apparently, the football phenom was so disenfranchised with both candidates that he elected not to enact his Constitutional right to vote — and now Donald Trump is our President.

Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday, Colin defended his decision to ride the pine during the biggest moment in modern American history, saying:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg slammed Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem protest pretty hard, but the sports star is firing right back at the Supreme Court Justice!

The athlete admitted he was upset that the 83-year-old condemned his peaceful protest, saying:

"It is disappointing to hear a Supreme Court justice call a protest against injustices and oppression 'stupid, dumb' in reference to players doing that."

In fact, the NFL player explained that the New York native's comments completely avoid the actual issues of racism and police brutality in our country, adding:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Calls Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem Protest 'Dumb & Disrespectful' — Gavel Down!

We did NOT see this coming!

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently sat down with Katie Couric to chat about a whole slew of controversial topics.

In the new Yahoo! interview — released on Monday — the journalist asked the political figure how we can eliminate the racial divide within our country, especially the far-too-often police shootings of unarmed black men.

The 83-year-old responded:

"I think there are serious efforts to educate the police and local communities to the importance of rapport. … We are dependent on police officers for our security, but they should also be cognizant of the community that they serve."

But the conversation quickly changed to Colin Kaepernick's powerful protests against the National Anthem.

When asked her opinion on the San Francisco 49ers player's strong stance against the song, the New York native straight-up SLAMMED the sports star's demonstration, saying:

Former NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Would Rather See Colin Kaepernick Protest The National Anthem Than 'Put His Hands Up & Get Murdered'

no title

Marshawn Lynch just made a very powerful point in support of Colin Kaepernick.

In the wake of Tulsa police fatally shooting unarmed Terence Crutcher, the Seattle Seahawks alum just perfectly defended the quarterback's decision to peacefully protest the National Anthem.

On Tuesday, the retired NFL star joined Conan O'Brien on his late-night show to literally stand up for the San Francisco 49ers player, poignantly saying:

"With what's going on, I'd really rather see him take a knee, than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered."

So incredibly well-said, while tragically highlighting the serious police profiling problem throughout our country.

The 30-year-old hopes Colin's movement causes a societal shift across the nation, which will make everyone aware of the racism that still exists, and ultimately end it, adding:

"My take on it is, sh*t's gotta start somewhere. And if that was the starting point, I just hope people open up their eyes to see that there's really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop."

The ex-running back also called out everyone against the athlete's harmless display:

"And, I mean, if you're really not racist, then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have."
