From the Washington Examiner:
Artifacts from former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protests will reportedly soon be on display at the Black Lives Matter collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History.
“The National Museum of African American History and Culture has nearly 40,000 items in our collection,” said Damion Thomas, the museum’s sports curator, to USA Today. “The Colin Kaepernick collection is in line with the museum’s larger collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement.”
Oh, so this is a Black Lives Matter thing.
Still waiting for news on the Clarence Thomas exhibit in said museum.

But Clarence Thomas was excluded. Wonder why.

Apparently Clarence Thomas has the wrong sort of artifacts?
You gotta wonder, what sort of artifacts do they even plan to include.
So a bench & a clipboard? https://t.co/7UZeWP5ezO

Artifacts? A piece of grass where he placed his knee? Or the bench he rode?

That speaks highly for the "important" artifacts that must be inside that museum, whats next the gun that shot the Dallas cops?

The "cops-as-pigs" socks, the Castro t-shirt or perhaps a representative Confederate flag since it's "just a piece of cloth"?

They had to know this wouldn’t be overly popular with sane Americans.
