Malcolm Jenkins stands as one of the most outspoken players in the NFL. The star safety for the Philadelphia Eagles has been vocal about social justice and creating change in the criminal justice system. He has also supported Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the national anthem.
Starting in 2016 and early in the 2017 season, Jenkins raised his fist in the air during the national anthem as a sign of protest. He decided to stop after meeting with NFL officials who pledged to give $100 million to programs that are in place to help the Black community.
