Despite being unsigned, Kaepernick continue to keep his charitable pledges, he has given a lot of his money and continues to get out in communities to help out how as much as he can.
Last week, he gave a talk in a packed auditorium of students at the DREAM charter school in Harlem, N.Y. gifting the students $25,000 and backpacks too.
Kaepernick was the first NFL player to protest during the national anthem, as he drew attention to racial injustice and police brutality. Some chose to twist his protest into a self-serving way, arguing that he (and other players who have protested) are disrespecting the military, when the protest never had anything to do with the military. It’s a dirty trick, but people have decided Kaepernick is the object of their scorn, and the truth about his motives or the good work he has done off the field or any other facts really do not matter. It’s sad how some blindly criticize him and choose to ignore the positive things he does.
Meanwhile, Kaepernick seems comfortable staying out of the spotlight and doing good things in many communities. It makes you wonder if he can help far more people without having to worry about a football career. His crusade is far more important than playing in the NFL.
