Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback, has pledged $1 million of his earnings this year to charity. Kaepernick is courting controversy for staying seated during the national anthem before a match, as a protest against alleged structural racism and police brutality in the U.S. The donation is a step toward his stance to support the less privileged. “I’m currently working with organizations to be involved, and making sure I’m actively in these communities, as well as donating the first million dollars I make this year to different organizations to help these communities and help these people”, he said.
