Colin Kaepernick to publish memoir


The activist and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback announced plans to release the book through Kaepernick Publishing, his own newly launched publishing company that is meant to “reinforce the importance of Black ownership” and “give power to Black and Brown voices globally, offering unprecedented ownership options to collaborators and bringing greater diversity and representation to literature and spoken word,” according to a joint release from Audible and Kaepernick Publishing.

Described as “part political awakening and part memoir,” the book will recount Kaepernick’s life experiences that led up to his decision to risk his career and kneel during the national anthem to protest racial inequality. The audio version of Kaepernick’s memoir will be exclusively released by Amazon-owned Audible. The print and e-book version from Kaepernick Publishing will be published in partnership with Melcher Media and distributed by Ingram Brand’s Two Rivers Distribution.

No release date yet, other than “this year”, but I’ll be looking forward to reading it.

Will Bolton Get To Testify Against Trump? All Signs Point to Yes.

Reason Roundup:

Firing Bolton may be the best idea Trump has had in office, and we’re all safer and better off because of it. (It would have been nicer if he had never hired Bolton in the first place, but let’s call that water under the bridge for now.) Bolton turning on Trump once fired just makes it all that much better.

Republicans on social media often rejoice in liberals “eating their own” during online outrage mobs—which, I admit, can indeed be fun to watch. But it’s so much better when the people putting each other on the menu are power-wielding warmongers and corrupt bozos in high office.
