Colin Kaepernick is worth millions in the NFL. But that doesn’t seem to matter to him. There is a higher calling that he has taken and he just might leave the NFL behind over it.
When he started taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem, he divided a nation. It happens all the time when people are forced to choose a side. You’re either on his side or you’re not.
His side was that he didn’t like all the killings at the hands of the authorities. They wear badges and think they can just take a life whenever they feel like doing it. Then they justify it later in their police statements that it was prompted and totally the victim’s fault.

Of course, everyone wants change. Everyone wants wrong to be right and for people to be held accountable for their actions. The news bits that we get seem to only tell us one side of the story. Thankfully, we have people shooting videos that show us another side of the story.
This is what Colin Kaepernick is up against and he feels strongly about it. Even with the videos circulating that tell the other side of the story, it feels like injustice seems to reign. Officers are getting away with the injustice and it hasn’t really been checked by the legal system itself except for a few scapegoats they have used to satisfy the masses.

Is Colin Kaepernick right in everything that he is saying? That’s up to you to determine. But one thing is for sure, it appears he’s willing to throw his NFL career away over it. As of now, he is a man without an NFL team. In a lot of ways, he’s a man without a team period.
Will he bring about the change he wants? He’s definitely putting his money where his mouth is. That speaks volumes for a cause.
