Colin Kaepernick Named GQ’s Man Of The Year

Published: Monday 13th Nov 2017 by Sam

When NFL star Colin Kaepernick took a knee to protest police brutality, few could have predicted the movement that would commence.

Countless others, from fellow sportsmen to singers, begun doing the same as a means of sharing the frustrations with the racial injustice in the US.

While countless praised Kaepernick’s efforts, there was blowback – some of which threatened his career.

However, he’s remained steadfast and for that reason GQ have bestowed upon him the honor of ‘Man Of The Year.’

Kaepernick has largely avoided media discussion about his actions, but tells GQ that he embraced this because he wants to “reclaim” the narrative of why he is protesting from the like of US president Donald Trump, who he believes is exploiting it to drum up division.

    He’s fine. He could be my man if I didn’t have an old man already. If he fixed his crooked nose he would be a 10 for me but right now he is a 7 and I’m cool with that.
