Colin Kaepernick is a jerk, and this Alabamian’s cartoon perfectly illustrates it

Cartoon: Scott Stantis
Cartoon: Scott Stantis

Longtime Alabama resident Scott Stantis is widely viewed as one of the best — if not the best — editorial cartoonists in the country. At one point he was the staff cartoonist for The Birmingham News. And although he’s now at The Chicago Tribune, which is one of the most high profile jobs in his field, Stantis still flies back to Alabama to get his driver’s license renewed. As long as he keeps coming back home — and cranking out cartoons like the one above — we’ll keep claiming him.

“San Francisco Forty Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick has every right to protest by sitting down during the national anthem,” Stantis said, “but then we have the right to call him a jerk.”
