I think Kaepernick got himself a girlfriend who happened to be an activist and through that he found a way to enrich or build a brand for himself. I've never heard anything insightful about society or current events come out of his mouth. It might be plausible his motives being driven by status are mostly understandable without examining the political landscape.

Several years ago while in his fairly brief professional prime Kaepernick kind of was a polarizing player and quite hated, certainly around where I live. He had a couple games versus Green Bay where he ran for a ton of yardage, which it is believed should not be allowed to happen for a below average passer in the modern game, and I believe his demeanor was a turn off. He may be attuned to factors that could cause certain types of negative attention.
