If you missed Colin Kaepernick’s new Netflix series, “Colin in Black and White,” you didn’t miss much. The series is getting terrible reviews.
Sports journalist and culture critic Jason Whitlock called the series “absolutely embarrassing.”
Watched all 6 episodes of the Netflix Kaepernick series. Kap and Ava are too stupid to be embarrassed, but make no mistake, this series is absolutely embarrassing.

How bad is it? One critic said Kaepernick “Continues to show time and time again that he is one of the biggest scumbags in all of the world.”
The series is about Kaepernick coming of age from a mixed race baby adopted by white parents to a failed NFL quarterback. Actor Jaden Michael plays young Colin.
The series was developed by Kaepernick, co-creator Ava DuVernay, and showrunner Michael Starrbury.
They attempt to portray Kaepernick as a modern day civil rights hero, but they fail miserably because he can’t get out of the way of his own gigantic ego.
Kaepernick is still bitter that no NFL team wants to sign him to a contract.
In one episode, Kaepernick compared the NFL combine to the slave trade (yes, he went there).
“What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic,” he said.
“Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary respected. No dignity left intact.”
Then a group of players walk off the field and line up near an auction platform.
A bit overly dramatic? Yes, but we’re talking about Colin Kaepernick. This series exposes Kaeprnick for who he really is: an unrepentant narcissist.
Colin Kaepernick compares the NFL combine, which allows all players of all races a voluntary chance to become multi-millionaires, to slavery. Anyone still defending this imbecile lacks a functional brain. pic.twitter.com/rMaKi7c6xh
