Colin Kaepernick is now the most disliked player in the league? Here are all the things HE DIDN'T DO: he didn't sexually assault anyone, or beat up his significant other like Ray Rice and countless others, or use banned steroid performance boosters, he didn't cheat by deflating the ball like Tom Brady. He just kneeled to protest what we all know to be true: police violence against black people. 

Meanwhile, the kids get it. High schoolers in sports teams all over the nation are kneeling with Kaepernick. They are calling it the Kaepernick effect.
