The San Francisco 49ers faced the Miami Dolphins in a jam-packed arena at Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Florida.

It was a great game as the 49ers and Dolphins were neck-to-neck by the end of the game. San Francisco led the game in the first quarter of the match. But the Dolphins does not want to be outdone as they made efforts in the second quarter and ended the first half on the lead with 14 to seven.

The second half was a game of exchanging scores. The 49ers won the third quarter having 10 points while the Dolphins had seven while the score in the last quarter was a reverse of the third.

The Dolphins did not want to disappoint the crowd thus, they had shown the fans how much they appreciated them. The Dolphins won against the 49ers with 31 against the 24.

But the fun did not even start there as it happened way before the finals score was announced. Controversial 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was booed by the Miami crowd after he showed admiration for the late Communist ruler Fidel Castro.

According to The Daily Mail, the Miami Area is home to a large number of Cuban exiles and families and it seems like they did not like what Kaepernick said about Castro.

It can be remembered that the quarterback is also making a stand against social injustice by taking a knee during the singing of the national anthem when they are playing.

The issue happened during a press conference one Friday afternoon when the player wore a shirt that suggestively shows a picture of Malcolm X with Fidel Castro which was taken during a meeting in 1960.

When reporter Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald ask about how he can protest about social oppression but wore a shirt that features a known oppressor, the quarterback just answered that he was wearing  Malcolm X shirt.

The reporter then pointed out to him that his shirt includes an image of Castro to which the NFL player replied, "I am a believer in Malcolm X and his ideology and what he talked about and what he believed in as far as fighting oppression."

He adds "The fact he [Malcolm X] met with Fidel to me speaks to his open mind to be willing to hear different aspects of people's views and ultimately being able to create his own views as far as the best way to approach different situations, different cultures."

Will this move tarnish the player's reputation and stand for social injustice?
