Super Bowl LIII features two former Northern California quarterbacks in Jared Goff and Tom Brady, but it's another former Bay Area signal caller who has inspired some to boycott the NFL championship: Colin Kaepernick.
"I will not be a spectator, viewer or supporter of the #SuperBowl today in protest of the @NFL’s racist treatment of @Kaepernick7 and its ongoing disregard for the health + well-being of all its players," tweeted filmmaker Ava DuVernay on Sunday morning. "To watch the game is to compromise my beliefs. It’s not worth it. #ImWithKap."
