Frank Serpico stands in support of Colin Kaepernick

Report: African American history museum to host a Colin Kaepernick exhibit

"He's trying to hold up this government up to our founding fathers", said the now 81-year-old Serpico. "We will take a knee, and we will continue to take a knee on the National Football League until they act with one voice".

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color", Kaepernick said past year.

Marshawn Lynch, a running back for the Oakland Raiders and arguably the most high-profile star to join the national anthem protests since Kaepernick participated last season, sidestepped questions about his participation in them during a press conference last week. "There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder".

"What Colin Kaepernick did is try to bring awareness that this nation unfortunately has ignored for far too long", NYPD Sgt. Edwin Raymond, an organizer of the rally, said.

"Until racism in America is no longer taboo, we own up to it, we admit it, we understand it and then we do what we have to do to solve it". Themes that do appeal to the museum, however, include hip-hop, the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, and now, Colin Kaepernick.

The Atlanta NAACP is calling for a boycott of the National Football League and the first Falcons' home game of the 2017 season if Colin Kaepernick is not on an National Football League training camp roster.

Goodell's comments came after several teams considered signing Kaepernick, but ultimately chose to go with someone else.

Some people have called Kaepernick's protests "un-American", but Saturday's speakers thought otherwise.

Raymond is part of a group of officers that has said the NYPD needs to stop using quotas for arrests in minority communities.

Colin Kaepernick's future in professional football remains unclear.

Many on social media have speculated that this is because NFL teams are avoiding him due to his political statement when he refused to stand during the National Anthem last season.
