Kaepernick is a controversial NFL quarterback who is pretty known about his questionable series of statements and actions. However, he will be honored in the new display that is going on at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall, according to executives that run the museum.

Allegedly he will be displayed in the museum because of his infamous kneeling protest during the national anthem last season before an NFL game. This is reported by managers of the museum.

The Washington Examiner had their take on the story:

Artifacts will be on display from ex-player of the San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protests at the Black Lives Matter compilation at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History.

“The National Museum of African American History and Culture has nearly 40,000 items in our collection,” Damion Thomas, the museum’s sports manager said in an interview with USA Today. “The Colin Kaepernick collection is in line with the museum’s larger collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement.”

The museum is pretty known for their controversy when they fell short to honor Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. His name was mentioned only in connection with Anita Hill. If you have any knowledge, she is the woman who charged him for the act of sexual harassment.

The Washington Times wrote this past month:

The National Museum of African American History and Culture has an upcoming strategy to introduce the beloved D.C. newsman Jim Vance in its display — but there’s still no place left for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Clarence Thomas the second black Supreme Court Justice to ever work in the highest ranked court in the US, and according to some media outlets, he is the most politically dominant African American in America serving in the 21st century.
