According to The Bleacher Report, the former 49ers quarterback is reportedly hashing out a $1 million book contract with Random House imprint One World. One World’s also published books by rapper Jay-Z and Ta-Nehisi Coates.
As Page Six reported, Kaepernick had been seen “taking meetings with publishers in the New York offices of WME” to shop his planned book. He’s also repped as an athlete by agent Carlos Fleming.
Here’s the deal though: One World has yet to confirm or deny his new project.
Ever since last fall, Kaepernick has been the face of the resistance when he vowed to kneel during the National Anthem to raise awareness around police brutality and racial injustice in this country. While he has yet to be signed to a team, the protest he started has transcended him and become a national symbol of peaceful protest against the powers that be.
It has also been polarizing with the likes of President Trump who has race baited and misread the protest as disrespecting the military and the American flag. But those who stand with Colin have made it clear that this is about our country living up to its creed of providing “freedom for all.”
It’s unknown what Kaepernick will exactly include in his book, but we’re sure that the last year has given him plenty to reflect on.
We can’t wait to read it! And we will always stand with you Colin!
Stay woke y’all!
