Colin Kapernick has gone from Super Bowl NFL superstar to humanitarian, and whether all of that was by choice, is up for you to decide.
Regardless, Kapernick has of course been vocal in response to the police killing of George Floyd, a Minneapolis man who was brutally murdered by police for seemingly no reason at all, caught on camera fort the world to see. The former QB tweet that it’s time for a revolt now that other forms of protests, including his, have fallen on deaf ears.
When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction.
The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.
We have the right to fight back!
Rest in Power George Floyd

Now, according to The Wall Street Journal, Kaepernick is now offering to pay lawyers to represent those protesting in the city.
In fighting for liberation there‘s always retaliation. We must protect our Freedom Fighters. We started a legal defense initiative to give legal representation to Freedom Fighters in Minneapolis paid for by @yourrightscamp
