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
In 2016, Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem and used his platform to take a stand against police brutality. 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 the white supremacist groups who caused the death and injury of people in Charlottesville, VA, demanded that Kaepernick be fired—and he was. Though he picked up a deal with Nike, Kaepernick has yet to be re-signed to the NFL.
