I think you could have one of two issues. Your wood is reacting and the way to tell that would be to make a partial rip, stop the saw, withdraw the board and see if the kerf is closing up. What I think is that you most likely have a misaligned fence. I don’t buy the advice about having the back of the fence kicked out from the blade. All you would be doing is rubbing your board on the other side of the back of the blade. My advice would be to get it as close to parallel as you can and then use a splitter. That should prevent burning and kickback.
