In 2016, Kaepernick became the face of protests against police brutality when he knelt during the national anthem."Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens," Kaepernick said in a statement."We seek to give new perspective to the differing realities that Black people face. We explore the racial conflicts I faced as an adopted Black man in a white community, during my high school years. It's an honor to bring these stories to life in collaboration with Ava for the world to see."

Kaepernick is a punk with no skilz. Good for a few years, defenses figured him out. He dropped to a knee to plan for his future. It was all a big 'Look at Me' sham. No organization wanted to sign a 2nd or 3rd string QB with that kind of baggage. A Marxist self-propagating POS that has helped divide the country.

whatttt 😂😂😂 More idiots I love Ava’s work!!!! Remember when he played the worst game ever played by an NFL quarterback.....ever? WHY? Disrespecting our National Anthem doesn't make him special. Everyone's doing it. ABC is really reaching for ratings. Good luck w/ that. I won't be watching. Dear Lord, ignore him! He will go away!

They should of left his ass with his crack mom. Now he is turning on his own parents . Rich white parents. He was so oppressed as a black man. That he went to great collage and became the worst quarterback in the league that has to count for something He's a very handsome and intuitive young man.... I feel he has more to say?

A veterans take on the flag and kneeling 😂😂😂😂😂 I see a lot of White people haven't learned to keep their racist opinions to themselves. If yall would have let him kneel peacefully without bitching-- the country wouldn't be in disarray. Can't wait to See this... Sick of this guy. Bet I am not alone. he bacame an 'activist' shortly after dating Nessa Diab. the brains in the relationship.

I don't get these dumbasses.I believe they've been putting stuff in the water all along.People are shot out. That's great that you were adopted by good white people It will be great, can't wait. Grew up in bad neighborhood. Got successful, then started sucking and then pissed it all away. The end So his privileged years?

Pass. I don't need to see the story to still know this guys an asshole. No one CARES. Go look at NIKE and how this fool hurt them. But then again, ABC is dead after what they did to Roseanne. The NFL didn’t turn its back on him. He opted out of his contract with the 49ers looking for a bigger payday. He overestimated the value of his abilities. If a team felt he could help them win, they would have signed him.

What a horrific life he had to endure! Why? Colin isn't black. Again I say gonna flop Hell no. Hard pass. No one cares America has been sooooo mean , he should leave the country , that would show us Not limited enough. Absolute zero chance a watch this BS. Well that’s fascinating. Oh, hell yes! Nice! I can’t believe that evil white family stole him from a strong African king and queen.

Try doing a documentary on a true genocide & issue going on in our country. Something our nation is guilty of.. but you won’t ever see this on ABC Just a drop in the bucket! White privilege ? who the fuck cares? Isn't this the same Kaepernick that refused to vote in 2016🤔 The same Kaepernick that sued and settled with the NFL for a undisclosed amount of money and had a all-star team of lawyers 'none' of whom were African American🤔

WOOOOF!!! No thanks!!! Kaep couldnt play anymore. Wasnt 'blackballed' 🤦🏻‍♂️ nice! I can't wait to see this series. Kap don’t do it.

Ava DuVernay Is Directing A Netflix Series About Athlete And Activist Colin Kaepernick“He would grow up to play in the Super Bowl and realize you never stop fighting for your dreams. She would grow up to tell stories that matter to millions,” Netflix tweeted. I wonder if she'll show that he never took a knee or mention black lives until AFTER he was demoted to second string behind the lousy Blaine Gabbert, and never during his Championship games or Super Bowl runs. I'm taking bets. What. A. Story. Between this, and breaking news about Kim Kardashian’s new net worth, I have to ask myself - what happened to Forbes?
