Colin Kaepernick To Release New Memoir This Year\r\n\r\nFormer NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick announced plans to release a new memoir to be released this year through his newly formed company, Kaepernick Publishing.\r\n\r\nIn a exlcusive interview with USA Today Sports Kaepernick the yet to be named memoir will detail his motivation and methods behind his activism. \r\n\r\n"I learned early on that in fighting against systematic oppression, dehumanization and colonization, who controls the narrative shapes the reality of how the world views society,\u201d \u201cIt controls who\u2019s loved, who\u2019s hated, who\u2019s degraded and who\u2019s celebrated.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe 32 year old Kaepernick still has dreams of returning to the NFL. He has been unsigned since 2017 after he protested police brutality against African Americans and other social injustices by kneeling during the national anthem as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.\r\n\r\n\u201cMy desire to play football is still there,\u201d Kaepernick said. \u201cI still train five days a week. I\u2019m ready to go, I\u2019m ready for a phone call, tryout, workout at any point in time. I\u2019m still waiting on the owners and their partners to stop running from this situation. So I hope I get a call this offseason. I\u2019ll be looking forward to it.\u201d\r\n\r\nSince being shun by the NFL he made a major impact in the African American community and prominent cultural figure. He helped shine a light on social injustice on a national stage. Other players, and celebrities have followed in his footsteps by starting organizations to address the issue. Kaepernick has been advocating for self-empowerment for black and brown people through his Know Your Rights Camps.\r\n\r\nSHOULD AFRICAN AMERICAN FANS BOYCOTT THE NFL IF COLIN KAEPERNICK DOES NOT GET SIGNED?\r\n\r\nThe book and publishing company \u2013 he'll also release an audio version and content from other authors through Audible. Rumor has it that Kaepernick may have commanded a seven-figure advance had he shopped his memoir on the market. \r\n\r\nTo read the full Colin Kaepernick interview visit USA Today.
