Russo is Kaepernick's biological mother. In his recent article, Dr. Ron Martinelli details Colin Kaepernick's background:
Colin Kaepernick was born on November 3, 1987 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to a white mother Heidi Russo (19) and a black father. Unfortunately, like many black children, Colin’s father disappeared soon after discovering that Heidi was pregnant and abandoned the pair. To this day, Russo refuses to identify Colin’s biological father. Russo gave Colin up for adoption by a white couple Rick and Teresa Kaepernick soon after Colin was born.
Kaepernick supporters on Twitter started attacking Russo for giving up her son for adoption when she didn't have the resources to raise him alone. This prompted Russo to fire back:

Love people who wallow in their ignorance and sit on social media in their glass houses throwing stones. #geteducated #adoptionisablessing

With the firestorm that Kaepernick created, do you think that he will ever be man enough to admit that he was wrong? Or will he have to sit through what's left of his short career? Let us know your thoughts on our Facebook page.
