Everything you need to know about Kaepernick lies in his relationship with Assata Shakur aka JoAnne Deborah Byron often referred to by her married surname Chesimard. She “is a former member of the Black Liberation Army, a black nationalist urban guerrilla group, who was convicted in 1977 of the first-degree murder, under New Jersey’s “aiding and abetting” statute, of State Trooper Werner Foerster during a shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973.
She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba, where she was granted political asylum.” as per Wikipedia.
She remains on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Terrorist List for Act of Terrorism – Domestic Terrorism; Unlawful Flight to Avoid Confinement – Murder and her alias’ are:
Assata Shakur, Joanne Byron, Barbara Odoms, Joanne Chesterman, Joan Davis, Justine Henderson, Mary Davis, Pat Chesimard, Jo-Ann Chesimard, Joanne Debra Chesimard, Joanne D. Byron, Joanne D.

THIS is one Kaepernick’s mentors. He has donated directly to one of her activists groups Assata’s Daughters and Assata Shakur’s (no relation to the late rapper) Daughter states per the Washington Times:
“Assata’s Daughters has been upfront about its admiration for Shakur, saying on its website that it “carries on the tradition of radical liberatory activism encompassed by Assata Shakur.”
“Basically our organization is a part of a much larger movement that is fighting for the abolition of prisons, police and anti-blackness itself,” said Assata’s Daughters adult coordinator in a video.
Assata’s Daughters described its role as “one of helping to escalate, deepen and sustain the Black Lives Matter movement.”
“We believe it is our duty to fight for our freedom,” the group says on its website. “We believe it is our duty to fight for freedom. We come together in struggle as radical Black feminists and organizers, under the shared respect, love and study of Assata Shakur.”
The Colin Kaepernick Foundation donated in April $25,000 to Assata’s Daughters, a Chicago “direct action” resistance organization honoring Assata Shakur, who escaped prison and fled to Cuba after being found guilty in the 1973 murder of Officer Werner Foerster.
The grant includes $2,500 for CopWatch, a program that trains volunteers to follow and video police, and $15,000 for teen training, part of the group’s commitment to “develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata.”
And for those who think Kaepernick didn’t know who he was funding….he retweeted the terrorist a HAPPY BIRTHDAY on July 16th.
Now this all makes a little bit more sense. If you believe the NFL and the fabric of American Patriotism is under attack, drop a comment below and let us know.
