Kaepernick is getting his own exhibit in the National Museum of African American History.
Kaepernick is the former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and created a wave of controversy about one year ago after he began his infamous national anthem protest, which involved him kneeling during the playing of the anthem.
Support for Kaepernick seems to be coming to a crescendo just three weeks before the official start of the season, with the #BlackOutNFL movement and a planned protest in front of the National Football League headquarters in NY on August 23.
A group of about 75 New York City police officers, mostly minorities, rallied Saturday in Brooklyn to support the quarterback.
"He's trying to hold up this government up to our founding fathers", said the now 81-year-old Serpico.
Facebook takes a harder line on video clickbait following spam complaints
Spammers often use fake video buttons to take users to low-quality websites which could even contain malware. For all the effort put into fighting the problem, clickbait is still one of the worst elements of Facebook .
The unusual show of support from police comes as a second wave of protests, modeled after what Kaepernick did last season in the name of "black people and people of color", is building in the NFL.
Kaepernick, the former 49ers starting QB, is now a free agent after throwing 16 touchdowns to four interceptions for San Francisco in 2016.
When Al Pacino asked Serpico why he made a decision to take on the cause, he replied: 'I guess I would have to say it would be because...if I didn't, who would I be when I listened to a piece of music?' "We will take a knee, and we will continue to take a knee on the National Football League until they act with one voice".
Seargent Edwin Raymond explained to the New York Daily News, "What Colin Kaepernick did is try to bring awareness that this nation, unfortunately, has ignored for far too long..."
Goodell's comments came after several teams considered signing Kaepernick, but ultimately chose to go with someone else.
