Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick chose to kneel for the national anthem last year to protest police brutality and racism.
Kaepernick is often criticized by people who say his chosen action is disingenuous and disrespectful. However, that overlooks the fact that Kaepernick gave up job security to stand up for his beliefs, and that he does, in fact, follow up his words with actions.
Kaepernick has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars, and Monday, he was outside a New York city parole office passing out suits to at-risk and formerly incarcerated people with an organization called 100 suits to help those people find jobs and economic stability.
Good for Colin Kaepernick, who continues to make a difference.
