Colin Kaepernick isn’t done pushing the left-wing agenda and forcing his way into the spotlight just yet. In May the one-time football player and BLM Marxist activist announced the creation of Kaepernick Publications. Now he has released plans for a new children's book series. He is working in partnership with Scholastic to create the picture books, and the first one will be titled “I Color Myself Different.”
Most everyone knows that Kaepernick is not famous for being an all-star football player or an award winning author. He made his millions from spitting on the country that gave him his fortunes and kneeling during the national anthem because he is just so ‘oppressed.’
The first book released by Kaepernick Publications is titled “Abolition for The People: The Movement For A Future Without Policing & Prisons.” The book was edited by none other than Colin Kaepernick himself who has no experience in the writing field.
Now, he has decided that his football career prepared him for a writing career. His first book, which is supposed to be for children, will be edited by Scholastic VP Andrea Davis Pinkney and published in April 2022. If his writing career is anything like his football career, we won’t have to deal with him for long.
Kaepernick posted this on Twitter announcing the new book:
I’m excited to share that I’ll be publishing I COLOR MYSELF DIFFERENT, a children's book, with @KaepernickPub & @Scholastic on 4/5/22! #IColorMyselfDifferent is deeply personal to me & honors the courage & bravery of young people everywhere.

The publication will discuss “a significant childhood memory of when Kaepernick first documented that he was different from his adopted white family.” The book's description states that “During a kindergarten exercise on drawing families, Kaepernick remembers putting down the yellow crayon he had been using to draw his family and picking up the brown crayon for himself. This moment crystallized for him the differences marked by his adoption, and how acknowledging those distinctions could encourage us all to be more accepting of ourselves and each other.”
If we are to be more accepting of each other then why are we pointing out differences in skin color? Because divisiveness sells in today’s world and that is where Kaepernick’s talent truly lies.
“Colin Kaepernick’s inspiring story, with themes of identity, race, and self-esteem, will resonate deeply with all kids,” said President and Publisher of Scholastic Trade Publishing Ellie Berger. “We are privileged to bring this work to young readers around the world for the very first time.”
Pointing out that everyone has different colored skin and should be treated a certain way because of that does not “resonate” with children, that’s the exact opposite of what MLK wanted.
The Senior Management team at Scholastic is majority white, nonetheless Kaepernick had this to say:
I’m excited for Kaepernick Publishing to be collaborating with Scholastic on books with Black and Brown voices at the forefront. I hope that our books will inspire readers to walk through the world with confidence, strength, and truth in all they do.
Instead of imagining a world without police I’d like to imagine a world without Scholastic.
