Congratulations is going out to Colin Kaepernick, what a difference 4 years make!! Kaepernick went from taking a knee to down a ball to taking a knee to uplift people and bring awareness to whats wrong in the world by magnifying injustices. Although he lost his job because of his heroic action, GQ magazine has chosen to show praise to Colin Kaepernick by making him one of their “Men Of The Year: The New American Heros”
Colin Kaepernick Is GQ’s 2017 Citizen of the Year
Though Colin Kaepernick continues his silent protest, he agreed to collaborate with GQ on a special project for our December Men of the Year issue in an effort to, as the piece explains, “reclaim the narrative of his protest.” He helped us assemble a ten-person team of his closest confidants—including rapper J.Cole, director Ava DuVernay, activist Harry Belafonte, and Women’s March co-organizer Linda Sarsour—to speak on the subjects of activism, protest, and equality, and to offer some rare insights into Colin Kaepernick himself.
