LeBron James has been extremely vocal this past week following the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin, and amid the NBA’s walkouts in response. Colin Kaepernick is right behind him.

Kaepernick — who first started protesting during the national anthem exactly four years before Wednesday’s walkouts — wrote a letter to James this week thanking him. 

“Four years ago on August 14, 2016, I began protesting against systemic racism and social injustice,” Kaepernick wrote to James. “Truth is what I sought. Solidarity is what you showed me. Love is what moves us forward. 

“Thank you for staying true.”

James shared the letter on his Instagram story on Friday afternoon.

“Standing/kneeling right next to you brother! Appreciate you,” James wrote on the story.
