A doll in the image of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick was seen hanging by its neck from a truck in San Jose, California, as Texas executed a racist who a dragged a black man to his death by a similar method in 1998.
The effigy of Kaepernick was spotted chained to the truck trailer on Tuesday, a day before white supremacist John William King was executed. King, along with two others, killed 49-year-old James Byrd Jr by beating and then tying him to a truck and dragging him for three miles over two decades ago.

On Wednesday, King became the second individual executed for his role in the murder which made world news, and raised questions about discrimination and inequality, prompting US Congress to pass federal hate crime legislation.
