As the Kansas City Chiefs put in a valiant game against the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday night’s Super Bowl, Colin Kaepernick was doing something different.
The Kansas City Chiefs were struggling during the first half of the game, but miraculously they turned the 49ers and eventually won 31-20 in an incredible victory over San Fran.
But what exactly was Colin Kaepernick doing? He was handing out suits and serving meals to those who are less fortunate.
Kaepernick is currently a free agent – which he became following his ‘controversial’ 2017 season with the 49ers.
Cast your mind back. After countless stories of police brutality, particularly against the black community, Kaepernick made history when he refused to stand for the national anthem before an NFL game.
Not only did he refuse to stand once, he continued to do so into the future, leading even Donald Trump to comment saying anyone who refuses to stand should be ‘fired’.
Many praised Kaepernick for his refusal to bow down when injustice is rife in the United States, other condemned him and called him disrespectful. Many even took it upon themselves to burn any Kaepernick items, such as shirts and shoes, they owned.
On Super Bowl Sunday, TMZ Sports reports that Kaepernick made his way across New York City, first stopping at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem before going to the SCO Family Shelter in Jamaica, Queens.
