    There comes a time in a person’s life where they’ve had enough.  Whether it’s being financially unstable or being in an unstable and unhealthy relationship, it’s a point that one reaches where a fork in the road comes and they take the road marked ‘Exit.’

    Colin Kaepernick finally reached his fork in the road.

    If you didn’t know who Colin Kaepernick was, you probably do now.  He’s a member of Kappa Alpha Psi® Fraternity, Inc.; one of the 5 historically Black Greek-letter fraternities within the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and a professional athlete who plays for a team within one of the four primary sports leagues in America: The NFL®.

    This league is so gargantuan in America that its flagship championship game is the 4th largest sporting event ever watched in world history.  The National Football League, the league’s official name, has so much power and wealth that it even fought off facts of what 200 lb – 400 lb men colliding with one another at great speeds and with devastating force did and does to its players, particular their brains.  They even made a movie about it.

    The NFL®, in essence, did the same thing that the tobacco industry did when it came to what tobacco did and does to its customers(CLICK HERE to Read More…).
