Even for those who are not large sports fans, the name Colin Kaepernick has become more popular over the past few months for standing up against injustice towards African-Americans.
This was stirred up after he knelt down during the national anthem before an NFL (National Football League) game. Colin has also been making the headlines for donating a million dollars to charity. So far, most people consider Colin the Muhammed Ali of this generation, but where is all this birth from.
Colin Kaepernick is a professional athlete who has become a success playing Baseball, Basketball and American football. Right from his childhood, Colin took up an interest in sports and by the time he turned 8, he was already a quarterback in a youth team. He was eventually awarded a football scholarship by The Nevada Wolf Pack football program. By 2011, he became an NFL (National Football League) player and signed with the San Francisco 49ers.
In 2008 and 2010, the Western Athletic Conference named him the Offensive Player of The Year.
Despite all the fame Colin had attained, he stated that he could not have peace with himself seeing how much injustice the African-American community kept facing. Colin also recalled faced some injustice as well as being a witness to some targeted towards the African-American race.
Colin, therefore, decided to take a stand while kneeling, just as Rosa Parks did by sitting. Not ignorant of the great consequences that await him, Colin is ready to take this fight up until the very end, putting in as much as he can in order to see justice.
In the midst of all this, Colin has had a fair share of both support and opposition. In 2017, the Gentlemen’s Quarterly (GQ) magazine acknowledged his efforts and named him the Citizen Of The Year.
In matters pertaining to his fitness, Colin’s career plays a significant role in giving him a buff figure but right from 2015, Colin has maintained a vegan diet.
