Colin Kapernick’s popularity has gone through the roof since he decided to sit through the National Anthem. The 49ers quarterback now has one of the top selling jerseys on NFL.com.

Kap has been at the center of a lot of controversy since deciding to protest the national anthem last month by refusing to stand when the anthem was played during the preseason. For Kapernick the protest is a way to speak out against “a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” He has also decided to donate the first $1 million he makes this season to two organizations that promote social change.
