Colin Kaepernick Says He Hopes For An NFL Comeback

Colin Kaepernick spoke with Ebony magazine about his new Netflix series and his hopes of one day returning to the NFL. Kaepernick’s last professional NFL game was in 2016 following his kneeling protests of police brutality during the national anthem but that hasn’t stopped him from working towards his goal of winning a Superbowl Championship. 

“I am still up at 5 a.m. training five, six days a week making sure I’m prepared to take a team to a Super Bowl again,” Kaepernick told the publication. “That’s not something I will ever let go of, regardless of the actions of 32 teams and their partners to deny me employment. The same way I was persistent in high school is the same way I’m gonna be persistent here.”

Kaepernick has continued to be an advocate for social justice issues off of the field and has recently teamed up with Ava Duvernay to create his Netflix series, “”Colin in Black & White,”. “There are different audiences that the show will speak to differently,” he said. “Part of what the show speaks to is how whiteness shows up…and how we engage with it…but also the pressures, the microaggressions, the racism, and what that shows up as.”

“Colin in Black and White” premieres on Netflix on October 29.
