Kaepernick fraternity brothers march for him in Detroit

In addition to roughly 300 to 500 who showed up at a Colin Kaepernick rally prior to the Week One game between the Falcons and Bears in Chicago, a smaller group consisting of Kaepernick’s fraternity brothers marched for roughly a mile in Detroit, ending their journey at Ford Field.

Per the Associated Press, roughly 50 members of Kappa Alpha Psi demonstrated peacefully in support of Kaepernick, who remains unemployed.

“When you look at some of the recent incidents like what happened to Michael Bennett in Las Vegas, it validates the stance that Colin Kaepernick has taken,” Eric Brown, a former president of the fraternity’s alumni chapter in Detroit, told the AP. The group, according to Brown, will engage in similar demonstrations at future games in both Dallas and Atlanta.

Kaepernick launched the anthem protests a year ago in the preseason, explaining that he was motivated by concerns regarding police misconduct experienced by African-Americans and people of color. Kaepernick has had no involvement in any of the protests and demonstrations in his support.

  1. He’s keeping himself out of the league. Just Friday he had a twitter post crying about NFL owners who donated to Trump. Ironic coming from someone who didn’t even vote.

  2. Yes, Kaepernick would probably be better than what the Colts, Jets, and Texans are going with right now. Until he speaks up for himself, no amount of crusade blurbs written on his behalf will change his employment status.

  3. Sitting for an anthem does not change a thing. In fact, it is dis respectful to those who serve the country. Yes, a small minority of officers may have a racial bias. Disrespecting the majority that do their jobs well to defend everyone isn’t the solution. I think Kap is a moron. The clown wore a Dolphins hat while playing for the 49ers. What an idiot. I wouldn’t sign him either.

  4. WOW

    Numbers are dying out , too bad was really hoping we could all read Kaepernick stories til the Super Bowl , but with that pathetic showing I highly doubt we will ……

  5. I thought this was a blog for football players, tell me what team is Kap working for? Speaking of Canada, what makes people think that they are that desperate to sign him.Bill

  6. CK is a one trick pony that has been exposed. None of the top scoring teams use that offense. He is not mentally capable of reading a defense and making adjustments. Only a fool of a HC or GM would want him as a starting QB. Nuff said.

  7. I thought Michael Bennett’s situation was shown that he was not held at gun point (taser) and that an officer who is a minority himself was the one that detained him (for a moment), thereby making racial profiling a non-factor? How does that validate Kaep’s cause? If anything I would think Bennett’s situation invalidates Kaep because Bennett essentially is crying wolf here. No? In a possible live shooter incident I would rather be detained and pinned down by a cop…that pretty much drops your chance of being shot to zero. Sad to say that media can take whatever view they choose in a story instead of just sticking to the facts.

  8. Just the kind of circus atmosphere owners are dying to have. Week one in the books and now veterans salaries are no longer guaranteed. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him signed in week or two. Although which team fits his limited skill set?

  9. Every time I try to reply to the substance of these protests I get my comment deleted.

    I will just say that Kaepernick going 4-20 in his last 24 does not save anyone’s life.

  10. 16 out of 17 comments support keeping Kap out of football for various reasons – sucks or is a distraction not commensurate with his limited skills. People are tuning out of football because we don’t want our entertainment to become political. Get the message?

  11. “When you look at some of the recent incidents like what happened to Michael Bennett in Las Vegas, it validates the stance that Colin Kaepernick has taken,”

    Just like the Michael Brown lie, make up a lie and everybody has to believe it or they are racist.
