The brilliant quarterback Colin Kaepernick is not only known for his amazing skills in his sport of American football but his astounding bravery and activism in the stand against racism and police brutality.

This was a form of peaceful protest that showed extreme courage as many other sports men stayed silent through fear of losing their places on their teams and sponsorship deals, Colin Kaepernick and team mate Eric Reid were two of the first players of the NFL to take a stand for what they believed in by taking the knee.
