The KK Project
The story of a present day injustice!
Welcome to the KK Project Page. KK stands for Karen Kaepernick. The "KAREN" Phenomenon is the occurrence of white women calling the police on Black Men for no reason. Inspired by Colin's Kaepernick's expression of peaceful protest, The KK Project tells the story of an entanglement between a Karen, and a Black College Senior that is a Dean's List, Honor's Program student at his university. This student is being attacked and retaliated against for speaking up about an injustice. This student was labeled a "possible active campus shooter" and much more, in this racist, retaliatory attack that includes categories of racism, white privilege, collusion, the first amendment, and the constitution.
The KK Project, is the final undergraduate academic assignment for a Social Change Leadership student located at the NIU College of Education. This dean's list, honor's program student is a part of (6) six academic honor societies, earning a 4.00/4.00 GPA in Social Change Leadership prior to this attack.
