Colin Kaepernick is still fighting to good fight and protesting the National Anthem. On Tuesday, the 49er spoke out about the recent killing of Terence Crutcher, and the death threats he’s received.
“They shot and killed a man and walked around like it wasn’t a human being,” Kaepernick said. “… That’s not right. And they should be in prison for that.” Kaepernick also spoke on the death threats he’s received since he began his protest, which have come from a few “different avenues” including social media.”
“There’s a lot of racism disguised as patriotism in this country,” Kaepernick told the Sacramento Bee. “People don’t like to address that, and they don’t like to address what the root of this protest is.”
During the interview, Kaepernick spoke about his $1 million donation and the website that he’s setting up to track how the money is spent.
“Everyone will be able to see exactly what organizations the money’s going to, and also making sure we get an itemized list from the organizations of what they’re spending the money on,” Kaepernick said Tuesday. “To make sure not only that I’m transparent in what I’m doing but that these organizations are transparent with where the money is going as well.”
Way to go, Kaep!
