Mark Felicetti is incorrect in attempting to paint Colin Kaepernick as a greedy malcontent (Mark My Words, April 18).
He claimed Kaepernick isn’t making good on his pledge to donate $1 million to charity. The only source he cites is “TheUndefeated.com” However, below is the EXACT quote from The Undefeated’s timeline:
“Jan. 17, 2018: Kaepernick announces that he and a collection of friends will donate the final $100,000 of his $1 million pledge over a span of 10 days. Feb. 1, 2018: Kaepernick extends the donation period into the next month and eventually raises at least $460,000.”
That makes $1,360,000.
