New children’s book uses Colin Kaepernick in the ‘stand against racism’

Sep 21, 2018 by

Brooklyn author Anastasia Higginbotham’s new children’s book, “Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness,” makes use of a contemporary, and controversial, figure in its theme of battling racism: former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Higginbotham has even made a cardboard cut-out of the football player — taking a knee, of course — for her readings/presentations to to children.

“Colin Kaepernick kneels for justice; he kneels for an end to police brutality; he kneels for equity in education and economic justice,” Higginbotham reads to a small group of kids. “So I’m going to kneel next to him as I read.”

One may wonder if there are any pictures in the book of the QB donned in his “cops-as-pigs” socks, or his t-shirt featuring Fidel Castro.
