Colin Kaepernick’s Frat To Protest Outside Ford Field On Thanksgiving
Back in September, Detroit area members of Colin Kaepernick’s Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity kneeled outside Ford Field in solidarity with their brother and they have huge plans to do it once again.
While the Detroit Lions will be inside Ford Field taking on the Minnesota Vikings, members of Kappa Alpha Psi will be outside holding yet another demonstration during the Lions’ annual Thanksgiving Day game to protest against police brutality and the NFL’s “blackballing” of Kaepernick.
“Eric Brown, an alumna of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity’s Eastern Michigan University chapter, say the Thanksgiving Day protest is necessary to keep the nation focused on critical issues raised by Kaepernick.
“Colin [Kaepernick’s] message has always been about police brutality and the injustices incurred by people of color here in America. Colin’s kneeling was never about the flag, being unpatriotic or something to be politicized by the unscrupulous,” Brown said in a release.”
The free agent quarterback has remained that way all season after he kicked off the protests last season, which continue to be a topic of discussion and controversy. He and his attorney has since filed a lawsuit against all owners, accusing them of purposely colluding against him to keep him out of the league forever.
