Actress Jane Fonda: ‘Colin Kaepernick Is The Best, Just Keep Kneeling Until You…’
The association welcomed Kaepernick to its yearly Bill of Rights awards occasion where he and different stars, for example, Gina Rodriguez, Jane Fonda and Judd Apatow were regarded for their work this year.
The NFL star, who picked up a considerable measure of attention for his choice to kneel amid the national song of praise at nfl matches, was granted the Eason Monroe Courageous Courage Award, as indicated by The Hollywood Reporter.
The crowd was apparently stunned to see Kaepernick as he was not promoted as being at the occasion. ACLU Southern California’s official chief, Hector Villagra, stated that was a result of the various dangers that Kaepernick has received.
Kaepernick, whose entry was met with deafening adulation from those in participation, made that big appearance for a short speech:
“We must confront systematic oppression as a doctor would a disease. You identify it, you call it out, you treat and you defeat it. We all have an obligation no matter the risk and regardless of reward to stand up for fell men and women who are being oppressed with the understanding that human rights cannot be compromised. In the words of Frederick Douglas, ‘If there is no struggle, there is no progress,’ “ he stated to an overwhelming applause from the crowd.
Later that night, Fonda yielded some of her speech time to discuss Kaepernick.
“Keep kneeling until you can stand up,” she expressed and then started praising Kaepernick. Take a look in the video below:
Jane Fonda is a long-term democrat and she is constantly going against our leader.
