What do you think of when you hear the name “Colin Kaepernick?” Do you think of what he can do with a pigskin? Down-the-wire plays and rushing yards as a college and professional quarterback? Do you think of his activism? Him standing up against police brutality and racial inequality? How his pre-game moments as a San Francisco 49er became the catalyst to athletes, public figures, and fans kneeling to the U.S. national anthem at games around the world?
Although this year has been shrouded in moments of awe and pop culture phenomenon, the bad sometimes outweighs the good.
