Colin Kaepernick Donates to Chicago’s Black Youth Project 100
While people continue to take shots at San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and his kneeling during the National Anthem before games, he continues to do exactly what he says he was gonna do and that’s donate $1 million to charities around the country.
Last month he reached $200K, and now he’s continuing his Million Dollar Pledge to help young people and causes that promote racial equality by giving $25k to the Black Youth Project 100 in Chicago.
“According to BYP100, the Agenda to Build Black Futures is “a set of economic goals and structural changes that could improve the lives of Black people living in America.”
“We envision a more economically just society that values the lives and well-being of ALL Black people, including women, queer, and transgender folks, the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated as well as those who languish in the bottom 1% of the economic hierarchy,” BYP100 wrote on its website.”
“I’ll continue to look at other communities in Chicago, as well, as far as what are ways I can help and what are ways I can try to help empower those communities,” Kaepernick said.
