Colin Kaepernick is sharing a message about why he continues to fight for justice.
The athlete began the protest of kneeling during the National Anthem to protest police brutality and racism against African-Americans.
Kaerpernick claims he was essentially blackballed from the NFL afterward and has still not been signed on to a team. A big part of JAY-Z working with the NFL, he said, was to bring more attention to the league's Inspire Change platform, which was created for players to engage with team owners, public officials, law enforcement, academic institutions, community partners and others to identify meaningful ways to strengthen local communities and the greater society.

He needs to learn how to respect the flag !!!!!!! He is absolutely one of the best! 🖤✨
