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."

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.

Whitlock tweeted that James's response was "not helpful", "Twitter trolling" and "shit stirring."

"This isn't helpful. It's twitter trolling. It's using this man's tragedy to build a brand as more outspoken than Michael Jordan. There are all kinds of ways to draw attention to this tragedy. Suggesting that we are hunted everyday/every time is just shit-stirring."

Arbery, 25, was shot and killed by Travis McMichael, 34, who, along with his father, former cop Greg McMichael, 64, pursued the former high school football player through an upscale majority white neighborhood.

The McMichaels would later say they believed Arbery was burglarizing homes in the neighborhood.

A grand jury will decide whether to charge the McMichaels with murder. There have been no arrests.

Donald Sterling In George Orwell's classic novel 1984, citizens lived under constant threat of a totalitarian government that sought to control their thoughts -- even in the privacy of their own homes.

In his strongly worded piece for ESPN.com, sports writer Jason Whitlock examines the events that led to the downfall of billionaire Donald Sterling, the LA Clippers' octogenarian owner who became a victim of an invasion of privacy by a media conglomerate that threatens freedom of speech and the right to privacy.
