The first trailer for Colin Kaepernick’s upcoming Netflix series, Colin in Black & White, has dropped. In the trailer, Kaepernick says the system doesn’t always allow people to speak their “truth.”
“Life puts us on a path, sometimes winding. But always ours,” the national anthem protester says at the outset of the trailer.
“Believe in your path, and by doing that, we can become who we’re destined to be,” he adds, but not before the trailer shows a white school teacher looking disapprovingly at a teenage Kaepernick as he walks in school sporting a cornrow hairstyle. In another scene, a pretty young black woman walks up to a young Colin, but she is quickly shooed off by a white girl and guy putting their arms around a downcast Colin as his narration insists, “In this game, it feels like the only choice we have, is theirs.”
