"Colin in Black and White" is a six-part docudrama series on Netflix "recounting his formative years navigating race, class, and culture while aspiring for greatness."
The series will detail "Kaepernick's life growing up as the Black adopted son in a white family living in Turlock, California, as well as social commentary discussing the history of racism within professional sports," according to IndieWire.
Kaeperick's special debuted on the streaming giant on Friday, and one particular scene was panned brutally on social media a day later.
The clip showed Kapernick at an NFL combine or training camp,
An overly dramatic Kaepernick points at NFL coaches, then looks at the camera and says, "What they don't want you to understand is what's being established is a power dynamic."
"Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod, and examine you," the melodramatic Kaepernick states. "Searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary respected, no dignity left intact."
The NFL players – all black – then leave the field and walk back in time to a slave auction with a cotton field background. As the white slaveowners examine the slaves that are chained, a clip of a football coach looks at the wingspan of a football player. Then the screen flashed back to the slave auction, where a slave owner then shakes hands with a current-day football coach.
