One of the 11 photographs of Colin Kaepernick in the December issue of GQ Magazine lists the names of 20 unarmed African-American men and women shot and killed by police.
One of those names is Samuel DuBose, according to our media partners at the Cincinnati Enquirer.
DuBose was gunned down during a traffic stop on a Mount Auburn street in July 2015.
Former University of Cincinnati Police officer Ray Tensing, who pulled the trigger, is free after two mistrials.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters dropped murder and voluntary manslaughter charges against Tensing in July after the second mistrial.
Kaepernick, the former Super Bowl quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, started the kneel-down movement in the 2016 preseason to protest police brutality against African-Americans.
He is without a job and has filed collusion charges against NFL team owners.
"The DuBose family supports Colin Kaepernick and appreciates what he has done," Terina DuBose-Allen, Sam's sister, said Tuesday. "It's not just about Sam. It's about all the other people who aren't even on a T-shirt who have been murdered this way.
"No family member wants to see their loved one's name on a T-shirt because it means your loved one was shot in the head by a police officer. We are not happy that Sam is on a T-shirt."
Kaepernick is being featured in the magazine as its "Citizen of the Year." He continues not to speak publically, but 10 of his confidants spoke to the magazine for a story titled, "Colin Kaepernick will not be silenced."
The T-shirt, titled "Even More Names," was designed by Kerby Jean-Raymond for his brand Pyer Moss. Other names on the shirt include Sandra Bland, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling. It is another in a series of shirts listing shooting victims. The first is called "They Have Names."
