LOL! #KapSoBlack Takes Over Twitter
In the middle of the heated debate over San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the national anthem, Twitter took a moment to have a little fun when the NFL star rolled out a glorious afro.
Thursday night, folks wondered if Kaepernick would continue his anthem protest during an away game in San Diego, and he was a man of his word. The QB took a knee during America’s adopted song, and was even joined by his teammate Eric Reid.
While many had a lot to say about Kap’s continuing demonstration, what caught folks eye was his huge afro. Almost immediately, #KapSoBlack began trending with folks humorously discussing the Kappa Alpha Psi member’s unapologetic Blackness.

But seriously, Kaepernick is so serious about his fight for justice and his unapologetic Blackness, the brotha just promised to donate a $1 million from his salary to community organizations.
How dope is THAT? We can dig it.
