(Right Country) – It’s pretty amazing that one of the left’s biggest poster children for oppression and racism is a half-black man who was adopted by white Christian parents and paid millions to run around on a field with a ball.
And then landed lucrative contracts just for speaking out about this perceived “oppression.”
That’s right, we’re talking about former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who became famous not for his football skills, but for kneeling during the national anthem of the country in which he was able to live such a lavish and privileged lifestyle.
Now, he’s struck yet another no doubt high-paying contract with The Walt Disney Company for a docu-series on what we can only imagine is his not-too-eventful life.
“The Walt Disney Company today announced an overall first-look deal with Colin Kaepernick’s production arm Ra Vision Media,” a press release stated.
“The partnership will focus on telling scripted and unscripted stories that explore race, social injustice and the quest for equity, and will provide a new platform to showcase the work of Black and Brown directors and producers,” the release said.
“The first-look deal will extend across all Walt Disney Platforms including Walt Disney Television, ESPN, Hulu, Pixar, and The Undefeated. Kaepernick will work closely with The Undefeated, which is expanding its portfolio across Disney, to develop stories from the perspective of Black and Brown communities,” the release said.

The first piece of content related to the deal will be a docuseries about Kaepernick.
“Using extensive new interviews and a vast never-before-seen archive that documents his last five years, Kaepernick will tell his story from his perspective,” the release stated.
Kaepernick’s notorious kneeling stunt sparked a national debate, widening cultural divides and arguably contributing greatly to today’s unrest and anti-American vitriol.
It has now become almost expected for professional athletes to kneel for the flag themselves.
“We’re looking forward to working with Colin to elevate important stories of lives too often unseen and to deliver them to a vast audience across The Walt Disney Company,” SVP and Editor-in-Chief of The Undefeated Kevin Merida said in a statement. “We want to continue to call attention to the issues of racial injustice that America is wrestling with, and do that in new, compelling ways.”
