This year a lot of people opted out of Superbowl LIII parties and watching the big game to protest and stand in solidarity with former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick- but did that actually make a difference and move the needle? Joining us on Let's Go There, DJ Alex D, discusses the hashtag #ImWithKap that trended on Twitter as many celebs and athletes supported Kaepernick. Rapper Common, comedian Nick Cannon, film director Ava Duvernay and actress Jodie Turner-Smith were among those to post.

Cannon tweeted that he was donating $7 to the Know Your Rights Camp, a free campaign for youth funded by Kaepernick, and challenged others to make a similar donation. For more info: https://knowyourrightscamp.com/
