NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is currently unemployed after he started a movement of players kneeling for the national anthem. Once his actions caught on — and were repeated many times across the league — it angered NFL owners, Donald Trump, and legions of Trump-supporting fans who saw it as an affront to the flag or the military. Kaepernick made it clear, however, that his goal was never to spread anger. It was simply a protest against what Kaepernick sees as the ongoing oppression of people of color. He had a platform, he found a method of nonviolent resistance, and he protested.
