Kevin Durant is also featured; so if Kaepernick’s justifiable honors didn’t upset you, Durant’s surely will.
Colin Kaepernick, the most polarizing figure in football, is featured on the cover of GQ magazine as the “Citizen of the Year.” He shares this Annual “Men of the Year” cover honor with three other individuals that include: Stephen Colbert who was named “Bad Hombre of the Year,” Kevin Durant who was donned “Champion of the Year,” and Gal Gadot who received “Wonder Woman of the Year.”
Kaepernick teamed up with GQ in an effort to “reclaim the narrative of his protest.” He aided in assembling a team of ten people from his inner circle that include J.Cole, Ava DuVernay, Harry Belafonte, and Linda Sarsour to speak in greater depth about protest, equality and activism.
Kaepernick who essentially sacrificed his career to jumpstart the morality of America deserves not only this honor but the respect of “reclaiming the narrative of his protest.”
Kevin Durant, the most polarizing figure in basketball, is also featured in this issue as a champion because that’s what he is. Basically, GQ gets it. Good for GQ.
