Quotes to Live By: Colin Kaepernick

Most people don't want to change. They're comfortable and set in their ways. But in order to change, you have to be able to agitate people at times. And I think that's something that's very necessary for us to improve as a country. Colin Kaepernick


Colin Kaepernick used his platform to take a stand against police brutality in 2016 by kneeling during the national anthem. This action would lead to some creating the amazing quote “Racism is so deeply American that when we protest racism, some assume we are protesting America.” President Trump, who claimed “there were fine people on both sides” in reference to white supremacist groups who caused the death and injury of people in Charlottesville, demanded that Kaepernick be fired—and he was. Though picking up a deal with Nike, Kaepernick has yet to be re-signed to the NFL.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
