Saints Player Alvin Kamara Wears "Make Africa Home Again" Hat, Colin Kaepernick Jersey Following Win
Alvin Kamara made a bold statement with his outfit choice following the New Orleans Saints’ win against the Washington Redskins Monday night.
While conducting a post-game interview with fellow Saints running back Mark Ingram, Kamara was wearing a hat with the words “Make Africa Home Again,” as well as a Colin Kaepernick jersey. He wasn’t asked about his attire though.

Kamara’s attire seemed to be a non-verbal jab at Trump. The hat is an obvious reference to Trump’s own “Make America Great Again” hat which his supporters — Kanye West included — wear. Kaepernick kicked off the NFL kneeling protests. Once others started participating in the protest Trump pressured NFL owners to punish those who kneeled, telling them to “get that son of a bitch off the field.”
In related news, Kanye West revealed that he wants Kaepernick to meet with Trump at the White House. According to Hot 97 host Ebro, West tried to enlist him in helping get Kaepernick involved but Ebro turned down the offer.
“What would be in it for Colin Kaepernick for going to go up to the White House?” Ebro said.
The Hot 97 host then suggested that instead of a meeting the following should happen:
“The only thing that needs to happen first, Donald Trump should come out and apologize to Colin Kaepernick for trying to come for his job. Then maybe he should probably come out and admit that in policing there is a cultural issue and black and brown men have been dying. And then he should probably apologize for coming after Nike for standing next to Colin Kaepernick.”
