This Baby’s Woke Parents Dressed Him as Colin Kaepernick for Halloween
Little Ceron Pugh III will have a heck of a Halloween picture to look back on when he’s all grown up- his parents dressed him as 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for the holiday.
Kaepernick has been drawing media attention for months now through his outspokenness against police brutality and for choosing to boycott the National Anthem at football games. The footballer has also, apparently, inspired parents, or at least the Pughs, to make a statement by dressing their adorable 14-month-old son as the player for Halloween.
Ceron’s mother, Hana Pugh, shared the now-viral photo of her son to Instagram along with the caption, “When you’re trying to raise a #woke baby, so you dress him as Kaepernick for Halloween #CeronIII #ForTheCulture #Kaepernick #ColinKaepernick”.
Hana and her husband, an Afghanistan war veteran and Army captain, chose to dress their son up as the athlete in support of Kaepernick’s actions throughout the football season this year. “While this was an adorable costume for our son, we also really wanted to convey that we support Kaepernick’s method of peaceful protesting of the systemic injustices in our country, particularly against people of color,” she told The Huffington Post. That’s some great parenting right there.
We can’t wait to see how many other woke costumes pop up during the Halloween season!
