Yeah, I don’t think so. Sitting on your ass and donating to organizations named after cop killers isn’t much of a citizen.

GQ Magazine has named former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick as its “citizen of the year.”
The GQ cover features Kaepernick, and says in the top right corner, “Men of the Year: The New American Heroes.”
The quarterback has not played during the current season since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers. His supporters have complained that he has not been signed by a new team as a result of his decision to kneel in protest during the playing of the national anthem.
“In 2013, Colin Kaepernick was on the cover of this magazine because he was one of the best football players in the world,” GQ said. “In 2017, Colin Kaepernick is on GQ‘s cover once again—but this time it is because he isn’t playing football. And it’s not because he’s hurt, or because he’s broken any rules, or because he’s not good enough. Approximately 90 men are currently employed as quarterbacks in the NFL, as either starters or reserves, and Colin Kaepernick is better—indisputably, undeniably, flat-out better—than at least 70 of them.”
