Over the course of the last few weeks, various members of the Niners organization have been very vocal about supporting the fight against racial injustice in America and worldwide.
More specifically, team CEO Jed York has promised to donate $1 million to organizations that are working end racism in the country.
The 49ers’ change in tone is notable given that this is the same organization that let quarterback Colin Kaepernick go after he opted to protest by taking a knee during the National Anthem before games.
Kaepernick has been out of the NFL since 2016. Despite other gestures, the Niners have yet to indicate that they are willing to welcome him back into the fold as a quarterback for the team.
Last year, San Francisco made it to the Super Bowl before eventually falling to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
