Colin Kaepernick continues to get blackballed by the NFL all because he peacefully knelt during the national anthem in 2016 to protest the constant racism and police brutality in our country. Nonetheless, he continues to prosper by giving back to the community with his Know Your Rights Camp organization and also has a deal for over $50 million with Nike.
Kaep also recently released his customized all black/white Air Force Ones which displayed a K on the tongue and his face on the back. The proceeds went to organizations that combat against systematic oppression. On Super Bowl Sunday yesterday, he wasn’t focused on watching his former 49ers team who ended up giving up a 20-10 lead and lost 31-20. Instead, he was in New York City giving back to the community in a major way.
According to TMZ Sports, Kaepernick went to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem where he toured the facility and then paid a visit to the SCO Family Shelter in Jamaica, Queens. He met with former 49ers teammate Eric Reid there where they partnered with 100 Suits for 100 Men. This was in order to help men try on suits so they can wear them for job interviews.
Kaep concluded the day by giving meals to the homeless with members from Know Your Rights Camp at a shelter in partnership with the LES Girls Club. He continues to show how amazing of a person he is. The NFL will never define him. He’s also better than every backup quarterback in the league and can start for multiple teams.
