It turns out that Colin Kaepernick supports murderers of law enforcement. Is anyone surprised? This has-been football quarterback is still pushing the “radical activism” that started the kneeling protest in the NFL.
“Assata’s Daughters” teaches girls 4-19 to participate in the Black Lives Matter Movement and is in support of cop-killer Assata Shakur.

FROM THEIR WEBSITE: Assata’s Daughters is a grassroots intergenerational collective of radical Black women located in the city of Chicago. We identify our work as part of the larger Black Lives Matter movement. Our programs aim to escalate, deepen, and sustain this movement for collective liberation. We believe it is our duty to fight for our freedom. We come together in struggle as radical Black feminists and organizers, under the shared respect, love and study of Assata Shakur.
We fight for strong, well-resourced communities that keep people safe and make police and prisons obsolete. We fight to abolish anti-Blackness and all forms of oppression.
Colin Kaepernick said Friday he has raised $20,000 for Assata’s Daughters, named after convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, through matching donations from his celebrity friends as part of his Million Dollar Pledge.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback announced that comedian Hannibal Buress and actress Yara Shahidi would both donate $10,000 to Assata’s Daughters, which says it “carries on the tradition of radical liberatory activism encompassed by Assata Shakur.”

The pledges were linked to a previous donation made by Mr. Kaepernick, who announced in April he would give $25,000 to the Chicago-based group as part of his campaign to give $1 million to organizations “working in oppressed communities.”
Ms. Shahidi, star of the ABC-TV comedy “Black-ish” and the spin-off “Young-ish,” thanked Mr. Kaepernick for giving her the idea.
“I decided to donate to Assata’s Daughters, which is an amazing organization based out of Chicago,” said Ms. Shahidi in a video posted on Mr. Kaepernick’s Twitter feed. “And I just have to say thank you to Colin for such an amazing idea, but also in engaging all of us and helping to contribute to our world.”
