Miami Dolphin Kenny Stills is donating the $50,000 he received from the NFL in honor of his charitable work, to Colin Kaepernick’s foundation.

Stills was a runner-up to Philadelphia’s Chris Long for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Long won $250,000 for his favorite charity, and the 31 runners-up, one from each team, received $50,000.

Stills - Admirer - Kaepernick - Movement - Kaepernick

Stills is a big admirer of Kaepernick who started the anthem-kneeling movement in 2016. While Kaepernick has been out of the league the last two years, Stills, and a few other players, have continued his anthem-kneeling movement.

The anthem-kneeling movement was started by Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49er QB, to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

Pride - Flag - Country - People - People

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way,” Kaepernick told after the first game in which he sat for the national anthem in August, 2016. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Players participation in the protest movement dwindled this year, but Stills, and teammate Albert Wilson, continued to support the cause and knelt during the anthem prior to 2018 Dolphins games. Wilson’s season ended on October 24 due to a hip injury, so Stills was the Dolphins lone kneeler the rest of the season. Teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist during the anthem.
