The brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi showed up in large numbers to support their brother Colin Kaepernick at the United We Stand Rally in front of the NFL headquarters today.
Kaepernick, a 2010 initiate of the fraternity, came under heavy criticism for kneeling during the national anthem last year and remains unsigned by any team.
The fraternity released a letter to the NFL Commissioner last week stating:
“Mr. Kaepernick status as a social pariah within League circles emanated from doing nothing more than kneeling “silently” during the National Anthem. Although politically unpopular within certain groups and not bold enough among other groups – including members of our Fraternity on both sides of the issue – Mr. Kaepernicks’s decision to take a stand arose out of the seemingly endless series of incidents that far too often finds young, unarmed black and brown males like, like him, dead or mortally wounded after law enforcement encounters. Few people of good will and reason would argue against the notion that enough is enough.”
New York members of Kappa Alpha Psi along with members from all across the nation showed up to support Kaepernick for the protest. Brothers who could not make it in person also did a lot to make their voices heard across the internet.
Check out the following videos of the turnout and the brothers showing their support.
