    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.'
