Three years in the past, Colin Kaepernick started his protests of police violence and racial injustice. Through the nationwide anthem earlier than NFL video games, the then-49ers quarterback took a knee as a type of silent, peaceable protest.
The continuing protests led to criticism from some NFL followers, and Kaepernick has remained unsigned for greater than two years.
Now, he’s posted an Instagram video reflecting on the demonstrations.
“Today marks the three year anniversary of the first time I protested systemic oppression,” he defined within the caption from the video posted yesterday. “I continue to work and stand with the people in our fight for liberation, despite those who are trying to erase the movement! The movement has always lived with the people!”
You may see the video under, although, warning, it accommodates some violent footage of police shootings.
