Colin Kaepernick Covers GQ As 'Citizen Of The Year'

Magazine has named its "Men of the Year" Monday morning.

The list also includes Stephen Colbert being named the Bad Hombre of the Year, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman of the Year, and Golden State Warrior Kevin Durant as the Champion of the Year.

Kaepernick is not quoted in the story, titled "Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced".

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been under fire for starting the national anthem protests that have taken the sports world by storm over the past year or so.

Olivier Giroud says the trust of Arsene Wenger validates Arsenal stay
The suspected injury means he could be a doubt for the North London derby against Tottenham at the Emirates next Saturday. The news comes a real worry for Wenger ahead of the Gunners' showdown with arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur in a week's time.

"As his public identity has begun to shift from football star to embattled activist, he has grown wise to the power of his silence", the article explains.

The men's magazine wrote that Kaepernick's kneeling in protest of racial inequality and police brutality "changed everything".

Durant, who earned his first National Basketball Association title after joining the high-powered Golden State Warriors last season and was named MVP of the Finals, is Champion of the Year, while Colbert, who remains outspoken about politics and President Trump, is the magazine's Bad Hombre of the Year.

While so many have demanded that he do a splashy interview with one of sports media's big names to promise that he really does love football and really does want to play and really can put football first over his activism and whatever other demands they feel they can make of a grown man that they haven't made of other NFL players who are not now employed, Kaepernick has largely stayed silent. Rapper J. Cole says Kaepernick "sacrificed his dream" to stand for something. "He sacrificed his dream".
