Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is back.
Not back in the NFL. Back in GQ. And he’s the ‘Citizen of the Year.’
In the article’s introduction, the editors of GQ compare Kaepernick to Muhammad Ali and Jackie Robinson, and name Kaepernick “indisputably, undeniably” one of the 20 best quarterbacks in the world.
The article goes on to feature interviews with 49ers safety Eric Reid, Kaepernick’s girlfriend Nessa Diab and rapper J. Cole, who says Kaepernick has the “biggest balls in sports.”
The article also features pictures of Kaepernick dressed like a black panther while wearing a Cartier watch and tuxedo pants, a picture of him raising a fist like Tommie Smith while wearing a black Calvin Klein tank top, a picture of him wearing a designer jacket and a t-shirt with the names of African Americans who were killed by police, a picture of him wearing a different designer jacket with his last name on the back, a picture of him wearing a dashiki, a picture of him jumping rope while wearing designer sweat pants, a picture of him holding a jump rope while he’s shirtless, a picture of him running with children, a picture of him standing with children, a picture of children hanging from his arms and a picture of him and a kid high-fiving.
