Without an NFL team picking him up yet, Colin Kaepernick continues to advocate for truth and justice. Many have begun to question whether his unemployment is due to his activism, and also if that’s where his heart is now, more so than playing football.
Ebro having recently spent time with the one-time quarterback provides insight and suggests that perhaps he is moving more towards a role of leading in the community; citing they haven’t even spoken about sports in quite some time. Laura Stylez asks the question, why can’t he do both?
Kaepernick, only 29 could more than likely leave sports behind within a few years, giving him perhaps decades to pursue criminal justice reform, amongst various other causes which he’s already begun addressing. Most recently he’s started the “Know Your Rights” Camp for underprivileged youth in South Side Chicago, providing breakfast and lunch as well as t-shirts listing 10 rights we all have.
- You have the right to be free
- You have the right to be healthy
- You have the right to be brilliant
- You have the right to be safe
- You have the right to be loved
- You have the right to be courageous
- You have the right to be alive
- You have the right to be trusted
- You have the right to be educated
- You have the right to know your rights
With athletes and celebrities in general rarely standing up for something, it’s quite refreshing to see someone risk so much for the people. Salute.
