About the Colin Kaepernick
He was born on November 3, 1987. He has been a player in the National Football League of America. After graduation in 2011, the 49ers selected him in the second round of the NFL Draft. The interesting fact about his story is that his mother was a white American and his birth father was an African American. The identity of his birth father is still unknown. His mother, named Russo, was just 19-year-old when Colin Kaepernick was born to her in 1987. Later; when he was 5-weeks-old, a white couple adopted him. Rick Kaepernick and Teresa Kaepernick became his parents, however, they already had two biological children; Kyle, a boy, and Devon, a girl. The whole family lived in Fond du Lac; later, the family migrated to California when Colin Kaepernick was at the age of four years. In his life, he experienced discrimination on the basis of race, class and culture on this way to success. His life has been an inspiration for the whole world due to his career as an activist as well as a great football player.
