Colin Kaepernick Creates Fund To Help Those Affected By Coronavirus

SAN FRANCISCO – Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick created a relief fund that seeks to raise awareness of the impact the coronavirus pandemic is having on minority communities.

Kaepernick opened the fund with a donation of $ 100,000.

“Black communities … are devastated disproportionately by COVID-19, by hundreds of years of structural racism,” Kaepernick said in a post on his Instagram account.

Kaepernick, 32, sparked one of the biggest controversies in NFL history when he began to kneel during the pre-game performance of the national anthem as a form of protest against social injustice in the United States.

He hasn’t appeared in a single NFL game in over three years. He filed a complaint with the league, on the grounds that the teams colluded to veto him.

The parties reached an undisclosed agreement to settle that case.
