Activist and former quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been mocked online after he compared the NFL’s draft process to a slave auction during his new Netflix special.
Mr Kaepernick made the claim during an excerpt of his newly released documentary “Colin in Black & White.”
What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic,” Mr Kaepernick said during the short clip.
“Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary respect. No dignity left intact.”
The excerpt went viral online, with many people pointing out there is a major difference between the NFL’s draft process and America’s slave trade.
