Read Time:3 Minute, 22 Second

Before the release of the upcoming Netflix biography series “Black and White Colin”, in a rare interview, Kaepernick detailed the intensive training system he is still undergoing.

“I still get up at 5 in the morning and train five or six days a week to make sure I’m ready to lead the team to the Super Bowl again,” Kaepernick, who became a free agent in 2017, told Ebony Magazine.

“No matter what actions the 32 teams and their partners take to deny me employment, I will not give up on this matter. Just like the way I insisted in high school, I will stick to it here.”

The 31-year-old’s promise to return to the NFL marks the continuation of his message published in November last year, in which Kaepernick tweeted a section of himself training with former San Francisco 49ers teammate Eric Reid The video titled: “Rejected 1,363 days of employment. Still working with @E_Reid35 and still working hard 5 days a week. #StillReady #StopRunning.”
Kaepernick and Reid resolved their collusion complaint against the NFL in February 2019, claiming that the team prevented them from participating in the game. Reid returned to the league, but was released by the Carolina Panthers in March 2020.

“I have confidence in my identity”

The new Netflix series will focus on Kaepernick’s teenage years and will premiere on October 29.

Kaepernick, who was adopted and raised by white parents, plays a role in the play, hoping to use his teenage experience to explore the issues of race and identity in society.

“The show will talk to different audiences,” Kaepernick said in an interview with Ebony.

“When you see blacks and browns, especially young blacks and browns, the message is to be loyal to yourself, believe in yourself, have confidence in your identity, and don’t let anyone take it away from you. at this point.

“I also think that when we look at the wider society, part of what the show tells is how white people appear… and how we interact with them… there are also stress, micro-aggression, racism, and those manifestations.

“I hope this is an opportunity for white people to examine their behavior… how do they emerge in society and how they get out of this situation with blacks and browns, what actions they can take to improve the systems and powers they have The dynamic and oppressive nature of status.”

Kaepernick struggled against the San Diego Chargers in 2011.

In addition to training and Netflix biopics, Kaepernick has also participated in various other off-site projects-youth camps and publishing and media companies.

Kaepernick and his partner Nessa founded the “Know Your Rights Camp” (KYRC), a free campaign for youth aimed at “promoting blacks and Browns through education, self-empowerment, mass mobilization, and the creation of new systems. The emancipation and well-being of the community” to promote the next generation of change leaders. ”

His production and publishing companies-Ra Vision Media and Kaepernick Publishing-aim to promote diversity across media platforms.

Ra Vision Media promoted a platform “showing the work of black and brown directors, producers, creators, and storytellers”, and Kaepernick Publishing, established in 2019, allows “black and brown writers to control their narratives and retain ownership”.

Kaepernick Publishing’s first book-“Abolition of the Death Penalty for the People: A Future Movement Without Police and Prisons”-edited by the former 49ers quarterback, will be released later this month.

Kaepernick greeted the fans after the game.

“You will have to continue to deny me and do so in a public manner,” Kaepernick added in an interview with “Ebony” magazine.

“You will expose yourself because of this, but it will not be because I am not prepared or not prepared.

“But in this process, I won’t let you bury my future. I will continue to work on acting and production, continue to work on “knowing your rights” and make sure we have an impact. I think this It’s the beauty of our collective—we are not one-dimensional.”
