It’s that time of the year again! GQ announced Colin Kaepernick as the Citizen of the Year.
“Much has changed in the four years since Colin Kaepernick was last on the cover of GQ. Back then he was a rippling superhero of a quarterback on the rise,” the magazine wrote.
What a time to be alive to see a high fashion men’s magazine acknowledge Colin regardless (or because) of the year he has been having. Colin was let go from the 49ers this year and yet no team has signed him! Colin is a modern day activist with his devotion to the Black Lives Matter movement, the Know Your Rights Campaign, and his donation to multiple charities to help inner city children.
Kaepernick was the first athlete to kneel during the National Anthem in 2016; his protest was in silence for the injustice and police brutality in America. Since Colin kneeled for the first time, he started a movement within the athletes in different sports organizations to protest and speak out in their own way. Congrats Colin and making a change and for the being nominated as CITIZEN OF THE YEAR!
