Colin Kaepernick calls out adoptive parents’ racism as he promotes new graphic novel | CNN:
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick accused his White adoptive parents of perpetuating racism in their household in an interview with CBS’ Adriana Diaz on Thursday.
“I know my parents loved me, but there were still very problematic things that I went through,” the 35-year-old said.

“I think it was important to show that, no, this can happen in your home, and how you move forward collectively while addressing the racism that is being perpetuated.”
Kaepernick revealed that when he had cornrows as a child, his mother said, “Your hair is not professional, you look like a little thug.”
I’ve long been of the opinion that Kaepernick is an ungrateful jackass. This interview and his new graphic novel do not change my mind.
