#UnitedWeStand Rally Draws Thousands To NFL Headquarters In Support of Colin Kaepernick
When your attempt to silence a movement actually sparks one.
Colin Kaepernick was once considered a rising star in the National Football League. In 2013, he led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl. Last season the 49ers QB tied for sixth in the league with a 4.0 TD to interception ratio. Still, with the NFL season starting next month, no team has signed him. Why? Supporters believe it's because of his choice to stand against racism and social injustice by kneeling, silently on the sidelines during the national anthem. On Wednesday, in solidarity with the unemployed NFL quarterback, supporters by the thousands gathered outside of NFL headquarters for the "United We Stand" rally for Colin Kaepernick.
