Colin Kaepernick’s protest of police brutality is headed to Time magazine.
The San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback drew national attention and caused a ton of controversy when he chose to kneel instead of stand during the national anthem.
The magazine, which hits news stands tomorrow, features Kaepernick kneeling with the caption “The Perilous Fight.”
It promises to discuss how the “National anthem protests led by Kaepernick are fueling a debate about privilege, pride, and patriotism.”
Many other athletes have joined Kaepernick’s protest including players from the Seattle Seahawks, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins.
A Time source said, “After Colin Kaepernick’s protest, the movement has become widespread and public facing, from the rest of the NFL to high schools and colleges across the country — and that is why Time put him on the cover.”
