“Kaepernick, who has never given a full, first-person account of his journey, is collaborating closely with Lee who plans to use extensive new interviews and a vast never-before-seen archive to help Kaepernick tell his story from his perspective,” ESPN reported.
It’s unclear why ESPN’s audience would want to watch a full account of the “journey” of the radical black supremacist who once compared the NFL draft to a “slave auction,” but Lee has previously praised Kaepernick as a modern-day Muhammad Ali.
The project was first announced in 2021 as part of ESPN’s “first-look deal” with Kaepernick’s production company Ra Vision Media. It will be produced by ESPN films along with 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks. Former ESPN personality Jemele Hill, who regularly spews anti-white racism in the media, is serving as a producer as well, unsurprisingly.
