Kaepernick Donates $25K to Charity Honoring Fugitive Cop Killer
As if things can’t get any worse for Colin Kaepernick, he piles on himself.
In another self-inflicted move to apologize for the loving white people who adopted him, Kaepernick rebels.
This time the moron decided to make a further statement against the police. And he let his money do the talking.
According to The Daily Mail,
Colin Kaepernick’s $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer has been revealed.
Kaepernick’s foundation made the donation to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughters, named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, in April as part of a $1 million charitable pledge.
Given the backdrop of Kaepernick’s current struggles, it’s difficult to believe that he would make such a bonehead move.
The facts prove the lie of Black Lives Matter. So he can’t pretend he doesn’t know the stats. Protest done.
But Holy Mother of Ice T, why donate to a charity named for a cop killer, Assata Shakur?
Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster. They sentenced her to life in prison, but she staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba.
Anybody wonder why Obama didn’t ask for her extradition when he normalized relations with the communist country?
Kaepernick wants remain relevant and to show Leftists–particularly blacks–that he is ‘down’ for the cause. Thus, he pledged to donate $100,000 per month for 10 months to ‘organizations working in oppressed communities’.

Assata’s Daughters was founded in 2015 to ‘develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata
Let’s just say this won’t look good on Kaepernick’s resume.
Regarding his donation at the time, Kaepernick said the following:
“I am planning to take it a step further, I’m currently working with organizations to be involved, and making sure I’m actively in these communities, as well as donating the first million dollars I make this year to different organizations to help these communities and help these people,” he said.
Kaepernick added: “I’ve been very blessed to be in this position and make the kind of money I do, and I have to help these people. I have to help these communities. It’s not right that they’re not put in the position to succeed, or given the opportunities to succeed.”
The tally through June is $700,000:
Colin Kaepernick is currently a free agent, but he’s been busy lately. Since pledging to donate $1 million of his salary to various charities in the wake of his national anthem protests, Kaepernick has donated $700,000 so far. This week, he announced the latest round of organizations that he’ll be donating to: American Friends Service Committee, Assata’s Daughters, Grassroots Leadership, and Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure. Much like the 20 other organizations he’s donated to, they’ll each get a portion of the $100,000 he’s been pledging each month.
I’d like to challenge Kaepernick to repeat this donation, since he now has no team. Let’s see just how far his philanthropy goes, now that he has the salary of mere mortals.
