Kaepernick, former NFL player, became a voice for racial injustice when he began to kneel as a form of protest during the US national anthem before every game. Due to this protest, it has led other NFL players to also follow suit.

The mural was of Kaepernick wearing an Atlanta Falcons uniform, which was painted on an abandoned building in 2017, the same year that Kaepernick left the San Francisco 49ers.

There is no word as to who destroyed the mural.
