    What has Colin Kaepernick done this year to receive 'Citizen of the Year' accolades from the liberal magazine GQ? Kaepernick, who is well known for his protests against police during the national anthem as a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, has pledged to donate $100,000 a month for 10 months to 'organizations working in oppressed communities.'

    Kaepernick's foundation made a $25,000 donation to Assata's Daughters in April, 2017. Assata's Daughter is a group named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur; a convicted killer of a white state trooper.




    Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison, but staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba. Assata was godmother to rapper Tupac Shakur, whose stepfather aided the escape. Shakur, whose legal name is JoAnne Deborah Chesimard, has become a revered figure in some activist circles, despite currently lodging on the FBI's Most Wanted list.




    Assata's Daughters was founded in 2015 to 'develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata.' Another $15,000 from Kaepernick's foundation is earmarked for 'teen workshops.' "We prioritize this work to help the current momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement to carry on into the future," the foundation's statement continues.

    A former Black Panther who joined a more militant offshoot of the group, Shakur was already wanted on several charges when Trooper Foerster pulled over a car she was in for a broken taillight. In a shootout, Foerster was killed and Shakur was wounded. Accounts differ as to whether she or another occupant of the car pulled the trigger, but she was successfully convicted of murder under aiding and abetting laws.

    Wingfoot is curious why a more deserving citizen, NFL superstar J.J. Watt, was overlooked. How can Kaepernick's financial support of a group developing a 4 year old black female to become a lesbian feminist activist/killer be more admirable for 'GQ's 2017 Citizen of the Year' than J.J. Watts' Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund?




    It appears Kaepernick is a better fit for the GQ alt-left narrative. J.J. definitely has the swagger to look good on the cover of GQ.........................just sayin.'

    Greetings UULC! The list of sitting-on-their-ass/kneeling/arm-locking/fist-yielding professional football 'Social Justice Warriors" during the national anthem is slowly dwindling. It appears all the Vikings & Patriots players/coaches/owners/staff (Vegas' favorites for SB 52) to date are being submissive to respecting the American flag. Time will tell if rebellion will raise its ugly head during Super Bowl 52.

    Here are the players who protested during Week 16, 2017 (most recent updates first):






    Oakland Raiders Marshawn Lynch sits during National Anthem


    Oakland Raiders: Running back Marshawn Lynch remained seated during the national anthem before the Raiders' game against the Eagles on Monday night. He has remained seated during the national anthem all season, though he stood for the Mexican national anthem last month in the Raiders' game in Mexico City. Lynch has not said why he has remained seated during the national anthem. He wore a T-shirt before the team's Week 4 game that read, "EVERYBODY -VS- TRUMP." -- Paul Gutierrez

    Seattle Seahawks: Several members of the defensive line again sat during the anthem before Sunday's game at Dallas: Nazair Jones, Sheldon Richardson, Dion Jordan, Jarran Reed, Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, Marcus Smith, Quinton Jefferson, Frank Clark and Branden Jackson. Linebacker Paul Dawson also sat. Left tackle Duane Brown again took a knee next to the group while center Justin Britt held his hand on Brown’s shoulder in support. -- Brady Henderson

    New York Giants: Defensive end Olivier Vernon continued to kneel for the national anthem, which he has done since early this season. -- Jordan Raanan

    San Francisco 49ers: Like last week, four players -- safety Eric Reid, linebacker Eli Harold and receivers Marquise Goodwin and Louis Murphy -- knelt in protest of racial inequality during the national anthem before Sunday’s game against Jacksonville. Safety Adrian Colbert stood next to the quartet as a show of support. -- Nick Wagoner

    Kansas City Chiefs: Cornerback Marcus Peters came out of the tunnel after the national anthem was over before the Chiefs' game against the Dolphins on Sunday. This was the seventh game in a row he had done this, though he was suspended in Week 14. Peters had previously sat on a bench on the sideline for the anthem this season. -- Adam Teicher

    Miami Dolphins: Wide receiver Kenny Stills and safety Michael Thomas, who is inactive, took a knee on the field during the national anthem before the Dolphins' game against the Chiefs. Tight end Julius Thomas, who has joined Stills and Thomas in kneeling for the anthem this season, is on injured reserve. The trio previously stayed in the locker room for the anthem against the Jets in Week 7, but they have knelt the past few weeks. Dolphins coach Adam Gase had established a team rule requiring players to either stand for the anthem or stay in the tunnel, but Gase recently told players that if they wanted to come out and kneel, they could do it and they won't be punished for it. -- James Walker

    New Orleans Saints: Most of the Saints players briefly kneeled in unity before the national anthem against the Falcons, as they have done in their past 11 games. They then all stood during the anthem, with some players and coaches locking arms. -- Mike Triplett

    Los Angeles Chargers: Left tackle Russell Okung stood with the rest of his teammates during the national anthem before Saturday's game against the Chiefs, raising his right fist for the fifth straight week. Okung was not active and was in street clothes for the first time this year. Okung said earlier this year that despite an agreement in principle between the NFL and the Players Coalition to address criminal justice reform, he will continue to protest during the national anthem on game days. He attended a meeting in October with NFL owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss how the league would handle anthem protests. Earlier this season, Okung wrote an open letter to other NFL players on The Players' Tribune, with the goal of overcoming "uncharted territory" by opening a line of communication and responding with "one voice" as players. -- Eric D. Williams

    Tennessee Titans: Wide receiver Rishard Matthews stayed in the locker room during the national anthem before Sunday's game against the Rams. He has protested by remaining in the locker room during the anthem for every game since Week 3, with Week 10 being an exception because of Veterans Day. -- Cameron Wolfe

    Los Angeles Rams: The Rams followed standard operating procedure during the anthem before the game against the Titans on Sunday. Outside linebacker Robert Quinn raised his right fist in the air, and punter Johnny Hekker wrapped his arm around him in a show of support. Wide receiver Tavon Austin and running back Todd Gurley locked arms. -- Alden Gonzalez
