Mulatto Colin Kaepernick Will Have his Own Exhibit at the National Museum of African American History and Culture
We could talk about the double standards and racism Colin Kaepernick has faced since his peaceful protest began for hours. Although many have complained about his peaceful protest and the NFL has him on a blacklist, the National Museum of African American History and Culture will honor him.
As the 50th Anniversary of Muhammad Ali’s refusal to enter into the draft for the Vietnam War approaches, Kaepernick will be honored near the GOAT in the museum.
Harry Edwards is the mastermind behind the “Game Charger” exhibit. Edwards is proud of Kaepernick for not allowing the media to deter him from taking a stand against prejudice and police brutality. Many would have been afraid to lose endorsements, afraid of being black balled put not Kaepernick.
“I said, ‘Don’t wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth on Kaepernick,’ ” Edwards told USA TODAY Sports. “ ‘Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, a picture … and it should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He’s this generation’s Ali.’ ”
