The legendary and iconic Colin Kaepernick is offering help to people who are involved in the protests in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd. The ex NFL player’s Know Your Rights Camp foundation is devoting to pay the legal fees for any protesters who have been arrested.

“In fighting for liberation there‘s always retaliation,” he tweeted. “We must protect our Freedom Fighters. We started a legal defense initiative to give legal representation to Freedom Fighters in Minneapolis paid for by @yourrightscamp.”

Kaepernick has been fighting against racism and police brutality since he decided to run a peaceful protest by kneeling during the National Anthem at his football games. His stance ultimately caused him to be blackballed from the league.

On Thursday (May 28), Kaep spoke out about the murder of Floyd on Twitter.

“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” he tweeted. “The cries for peace will rain down and when they do, they will land on deaf ears because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back! Rest in Power George Floyd.”
