The NFL might be blackballing him, but Colin Kaepernick still has plenty of people on his side.
Thousands protested Wednesday in support of Kaepernick outside NFL headquarters in Manhattan, in a rally organized by actor/director Spike Lee. People of all races showed solidarity for the quarterback who, unlike Jay Cutler, still is without a job in the NFL — something many attribute to the negative publicity surrounding his decision to protest the national anthem last season.
ESPN’s The Undefeated provided a montage of the rally, which can be viewed below.
Here’s a longer clip of members of Kappa Alpha Psi, a predominantly African-American collegiate fraternity, showing support for Kaepernick.
And here are some other sights and sounds from the rally.
Whether Wednesday’s protest in New York increases Kaepernick’s chances of getting a job in the NFL remains to be seen.
