Colin Kaepernick is a very polarizing figure in today’s sports climate. Ever since he began to protest police brutality during the playing of the national anthem at NFL games, his behavior has been heavily scrutinized.
Some feel his inability to land a job with another NFL team, since his former employer, the San Francisco 49ers, released him, is a direct result of this protest.
Many of his NFL peers and fans feel he is being blackballed out of the league due to his protests. He’s garnered much support from other athletes and celebrities, including LeBron James and Charlamagne the God.
