Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest has gained a massive amount of support.

During recent NFL games, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not stood up during the national anthem, which he said is a protest against the racial injustice and police brutality facing African-Americans in the United States.

Despite some prominent figures, including 2016 Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, slamming Kaepernick for refusing to stand during the national anthem, the 49ers recently decided to keep him on their official roster.

Kaepernick’s protest seems to be working, because his jersey has become the top-selling jersey in the entire NFL. On Wednesday, the 28-year-old athlete took to Instagram to share the news about his in-demand jersey, and he thanked those who have stuck by him thus far.

“I want to thank everyone who has shown me love and support, it truly means a lot! I wasn’t expecting my jersey sales to jump to number one because of this, but it shows the people’s belief that we can achieve justice and equality for ALL!” he captioned the post.

Kaepernick then revealed that he would be donating all of the profits made from his jersey to charity.

“The only way I can repay you for the support is to return the favor by donating all the proceeds I receive from my jersey sales back into the communities! I believe in the people, and WE can be the change!” he concluded.

Kaepernick’s post came shortly after he previously promised to donate $1 million to charity.

This new development in Kaepernick’s protest proves two things. The first is that racial inequality against African-Americans is a serious issue that a mass amount of people want to end.

The second is that Kaepernick is completely serious about wanting to make America a better place for people of all races. Hopefully, this will stop his opposers from continuing to say he is doing this due to his hatred of America.
