Colin Kaepernick is GQ’s Citizen of the Year


0 Comment

Love him or hate him, but Colin Kaepernick still GQ’s “Citizen of the Year.” The magazine is notorious for recognizing hot men with chiseled abs, but this time, it’s about more than that. Notorious for starting the “kneeling instead of standing” movement during NFL games, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is known for his activism. Originally, Kaepernick began kneeling to protest racial inequality and police brutality. GQ interviewed Fayetteville native J Cole in the story, who said that Kaepernick “sacrificed his dream” to stand for something. Since March, the quarterback has yet to have been picked by another team after being cut by the 49ers. Because in what CRAZY world do sports and politics collide??? #jokes
