Kaepernick: Netflix Let Him Influence Casting, ‘Final Cuts’ for Series Dramatizing His Life

October 29, 2021

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, cop-hating Marxist revolutionary and former quarterback Colin Kaepernick confirmed that Netflix gave him unprecedented creative power over his new drama series Colin in Black & White, including input into casting and final cut.

“As a co-creator and executive producer, I was involved in all aspects of the show — from its creation, to its script, to the casting decisions, format, and final cuts,” he said. “The format and structure of the show became critically important because one of my goals was to tell a great story without ambiguity as to the messaging behind it.”

Colin in Black & White focuses on the national anthem protester’s boyhood as the adopted son of white parents. “I had important goals I wanted to achieve in telling this part of my story,” Kaepernick said. “I wanted to create a scripted series around my high school years that addressed race and racism head-on.”

Yes, America is so racist that a second-rate quarterback-turned-multimillionaire social justice activist is handed his own Netflix series and granted unprecedented creative control.
