Colin Kaepernick has another project. One of many.

- A landmark case: In first-of-its-kind Montana climate trial, judge rules for youth activists
His latest is a children’s book called “I Color Myself Different” that was published this week. It’s based in part on Kaepernick’s life and focuses on adoption, Black and brown love, and accepting ourselves and each other.
Kaepernick answered written questions from USA TODAY Sports about his new project. Interestingly, he declined to answer questions about football and a possible return to the NFL.
“Truthfully, the concept for this book had been on my mind for quite some time before I actually sat down to write it,” Kaepernick wrote. “My goal with ‘I Color Myself Different’ is to inspire and empower children — especially Black and Brown children — to move through the world as their best and true selves, to move through the world with confidence and agency in all they do. Tackling themes like identity, adoption, and self-love, ‘I Color Myself Different’ is actually based on a true story from my childhood.
