Happy Birthday to Colin Kaepernick!

Lil Wayne may have disappointed supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement but activists still have at least one celebrity standing with them -- Colin Kaepernick.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who turns 29 today, has been increasingly showing his "wokeness" this year as he's been kneeling during the Star-Spangled Banner to protest black and brown people who've repeatedly been shot and killed by white police officers and vigilantes.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," he said during the preseason. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

It seems that he's taking action, as well. This past week, Kaepernick hosted a Black Panther-inspired youth camp dubbed Know Your Nights.

And just as Kaepernick's protest continues to gain momentum, so has his hair. In the beginning of the year, Kaepernick started off with a signature fade. But it wasn't long before his curly fro began to blossom. He even tried out some cornrows for a bit before his fro went full Angela Davis.

Check out the evolution -- or "hairvolution" as TMZ calls it -- of Colin Kaepernick above.
