The name Colin Kaepernick went viral in 2016. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback began kneeling during the national anthem as a form of protest against racial injustice and police brutality in the United States.

That gesture sparked a national debate and, despite his talent, his career would be irreversibly damaged. In 2017, he became a free agent and was not signed by any team in the NFL, a status which has continued to this day.

At the time, Kaepernick founded the 'Know Your Rights' campaign to empower and educate young black people about their rights.

Involved in social advocacy and racial justice activities, the former quarterback became an important figure in the civil rights movement. His latest move was a secret visit to Madrid to meet Real Madrid's Brazilian star, Vinicius Jr. in person.

"My brother Vinicius is changing the world. He's staying great," Kaepernick said on social media.

Kaepernick also watched the LaLiga EA Sports derby between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, which was played at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday, before visiting the Brazilian's home to share his experiences and help the Brazilian continue his fight against racism.

"Today was a very, very special day for me. To hear and know the story of a man who fought so hard against racism was unforgettable for me. Thank you so much Colin. His story is truly inspiring and I recommend everyone to watch his Netflix documentary," Vinicius Jr detailed on Instagram.

"Thank you, Nike, for connecting us. This day and my conversation with Colin will have a great impact on my future life to make this world better and more equal."
