Outspoken left-wing activist and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is raising eyebrows with a graphic novel entitled “Change the Game.”

In the book, Kaepernick describes his white adoptive parents as loving, but ignorant and out of touch with their son’s black identity.

Many people have criticized Kaepernick for seeing racism in everything, including his own parents who were willing to adopt and love him.

Despite intense backlash, Kaepernick has doubled down on the novel during interviews.

“It is very difficult for people to have a nuanced conversation around it,” Kaepernick said. “The people that love you and that you love can also perpetuate very problematic elements.”

Here are some of the responses:

Indeed, it really takes a special kind of entitlement and selfishness for someone like Kaepernick to speak like that about a family that loved him. This really is a classless thing to do.

Kaepernick might get along well with Prince Harry, another privileged celebrity who recently wrote a book slamming his own family. It seems like this is a trend among woke, entitled celebrities.

Kaepernick’s parents made a lot of sacrifices in order to raise him, so the fact that he is speaking about them this way publically is really just disturbing.
