NFL quarterback turned activist Colin Kaepernick finally got a deal to publish a picture book with children’s publisher Scholastic.
While Kaepernick never managed to get a deal with an NFL team, his literary career is about to take off. Kaepernick announced that his planned book “I Color Myself Different” will come out next April.
Kaepernick said, “This story is deeply personal to me, and inspired by real events in my life. I hope that it honors the courage and bravery of young people everywhere by encouraging them to live with authenticity and purpose.”
Kaepernick managed to turn his mediocre NFL career into a successful grifting career. Kaepernick first attracted the nation’s attention by protesting the national anthem by kneeling.
Since he first kneeled in 2016, Kaepernick has repeatedly made the news advocating for different social justice causes. His new children’s book will likely be continuing that advocacy.
Colin Kaepernick’s success in turning social justice activism into millions of dollars is unparalleled. Kaepernick turned oppression into a path to fame and riches, and this book deal is the next step in keeping his activism career alive.
