Much of the criticism 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has received during a week where he was crucified for his decision to protest the National Anthem by sitting, was the method in which he did just that.

Though the protest was peaceful and went rather noticed through the first two weeks of the preseason, many felt as if sitting during the anthem disrespected the millions of veterans who fought for his very right to the 1st Amendment.

Critics also pondered what exactly simply sitting during the playing of a song before a football game would do for the “oppressed” and the victims of police brutality. That portion has now come into focus of the ‘bringing awareness’ portion, will more plans by the QB being revealed.

After sitting once again prior to the 49ers vs Chargers game Thursday night in San Diego, Kaepernick spoke to the media post-game explain the next step.

He announced he would be pledging $1 million to communities in need and charitable organization that would aid in such. The money will come from the first million Kaepernick will earn this season, a figure he will still reach even if he is cut from the team before the regular season opener.

“I’ve been very blessed to be in this position and to be able to make the kind of money I do,” Kaepernick said. “And I have to help these people. I have to help these communities. It’s not right that they’re not put in a position to succeed or given those opportunities to succeed.”
