Anyways, let's get to what he has recently said. Kaepernick recently released that he has been receiving death threats. He came out with this statement...
"To me, if something like that were to happen, you've proved my point and it will be loud and clear for everyone why it happened and that would move this movement forward at a greater speed than what it is even now," Kaepernick said. "Granted, I don't want that to happen but that's the realization of what could happen and I knew there were other things that came along with this when I first stood up and spoke about it. That's not something I haven't thought about."
You'd be surprised how quickly people would forget who you even were.
