Free agent NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is taking all of the attention making the GQ cover to address the controversy surrounding rap star Meek Mill. The publicized Black Lives Matter activist has stepped forward to speak up for Mill.
On Monday, Kaepernick went to Twitter to suggest Meek’s legal nightmare is a frequent occurrence for black Americans.
Sadly there are Black folks going through the same radicalized injustice(s) within the justice system that Meek Mill has experienced for over a decade EVERY SINGLE DAY. This requires more than just gradual reform in laws—It requires a swift overhaul. pic.twitter.com/Mt13BwnIvJ

Last night, hip-hop veteran T.I. revealed the personal impact a massive pro-Meek Philadelphia rally had on him.
Now I ain't soft or "emo" by far but this shit brought tears to my eyes for so many reasons. 1.Because I know that my lil bro don't deserve what he going through right now. He's changed so much,done everything in his power to prevent this & should be released immediately. 2.Because THIS is the unity,love,& support so many of our brothers behind the walls need desperately while most will never see it!!! But now today because of Lil bro they'll get a glimpse of what it feels like & that HOPE will inspire them to push forward to receive they're moment in the sun. Just one more of the MANY WAYS my lil bro is creating change & unity within His community. THIS IS STRONG💪🏽!!! 🗣FREE MEEK
According to reports, the FBI is looking into the judge responsible for sending Meek to prison.
Judge Genece Brinkley is reportedly being investigated by the FBI for possible relationships she might have in Philly — including to a local music mogul she allegedly asked Meek to sign with — as well as a possible “extortionate demand” … according to the New York Post. Per the report, undercover agents have been in the courtroom following Meek’s case since April 2016, and the Philly music mogul, Charlie Mack, allegedly once told Meek he knew the judge and could help him with his case. Mack denied that claim to the Post. (TMZ)
