Rally in support of National Football League quarterback Kaepernick planned

Rally in support of National Football League quarterback Kaepernick planned”

Spike Lee is promoting a planned rally for free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

According to a social media post by Lee on Tuesday, the "United We Stand" rally for Kaepernick, organized by several civil rights groups, will start at 5pm (2100 GMT) on August 23 outside the National Football League headquarters on Park Avenue in New York City.

Colin Kaepernick #7 of the San Francisco 49ers during game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 23, 2016 in Santa Clara, California.

Lee tweeted an advertisement for the rally scheduled for August 23 outside the NFL's headquarters in New York City. "However I Still Support My Brother And His Stance On The Injustices In The USA", Lee said in a separate Twitter post.

Furthermore, the filmmaker says he won't even be able to make the rally due to his schedule, which includes the Thanksgiving Day premiere of his Netflix series "She's Gotta Have It".

Kaepernick, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, became a topic of national conversation past year when he chose not to stand during the national anthem. Many believe (130 thousand have reportedly signed a change.org petition) that Kaepernick's act of kneeling during the National Anthem is the reason he has not been signed to play for any NFL team this upcoming season.
