Colin Rand Kaepernick is a quarterback in the National Football League. He was picked 36th in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He initially started as a backup quarterback, but after Alex Smith was put out of the game due to injuries, Kaepernick became the starting quarterback for the team for the following seasons. Despite a short career in the league, he holds the NFL record for most rushing yards by a quarterback, in both, a single game (181 yards) and in a single postseason (246 yards).
Kaepernick has been vocal and expressive about racial injustice in the country, and made headlines for kneeling during the national anthem at the beginning of NFL matches in protest to police brutality and systemic racism in 2016. The following season, he was shunned from the team, becoming a free agent. Kaepernick went public with his relationship with Nessa Diab the same year. The couple started the “Know Your Rights Camp”, that educates underprivileged youths about self-empowerment and civil rights.
