Time 100 (often written in all-caps as TIME 100) is an annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world assembled by the American news magazine Time. First published in 1999 as the result of a debate among American academics, politicians, and journalists, the list is now an annual event. Although appearing on the list is often seen as an honor, Time makes it clear that entrants are recognized for changing the world, regardless of the consequences of their actions. The final list of influential individuals is exclusively chosen by Time editors with nominations coming from the TIME 100 alumni and the magazine's international writing staff.[1] Only the winner of the Reader's Poll, conducted days before the official list is revealed, is chosen by the general public.[2]

Included in the list eleven times, Barack Obama is the person who has been listed most often.

Spotlight Recipient

Colin Rand Kaepernick (/ˈkæpərnɪk/ KAP-er-nick;[1] born November 3, 1987) is an American football quarterback who is currently a free agent. Kaepernick played collegiate football at the University of Nevada where he was named the Western Athletic Offensive Player of the Year twice and was the Most Valuable Player of the 2008 Humanitarian Bowl. Kaepernick was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Kaepernick began his professional career as a backup to Alex Smith, but became the 49ers' starter in the middle of the 2012 season after Smith suffered a concussion. He remained the team's starting quarterback for the rest of the season and went on to lead the 49ers to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1994, losing to the Baltimore Ravens. During the 2013 season, his first full season as a starter, Kaepernick helped the 49ers reach the NFC Championship, losing to the Seattle Seahawks. In the following seasons, Kaepernick lost and won back his starting job, with the 49ers missing the playoffs for three years consecutively.

In 2016, Kaepernick gained national attention when he began protesting the United States national anthem by not standing while the anthem was being performed before the start of games, motivated by what he viewed as the oppression of black people and other non-white races in the U.S. His actions prompted a wide variety of responses, including additional athletes in the NFL and other U.S. sports leagues protesting the anthem in various ways.
