Colin Kaepernick's Girlfriend

Colin Rand Kaepernick is a free agent quarterback who used to play 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 got his chance to play when Alex Smith was 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).

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been a major influence both on and off the field. He made headlines when he took a knee during the national anthem back in August 2016, in protest to police brutality and systemic racism in 2016. This was during a preseason game between the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers.

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.
