If there’s one NFL star you can depend on to lack all self-awareness while peddling the most idiotic, divisive garbage, it’s good ol’ Colin Kaepernick.
Whitlock rips into him, saying he’s “exposing himself as one of the worst human beings in the history of America.”
“He’s not beyond redemption,” he adds, “but this is a tragic, sad, confused, mean-spirited human being. This is no hero. This is no one that’s interested in social justice. This is an idiot who is mean-spirited, ungrateful, and a blight on the sports world.”
Why is Whitlock saying this?
Apparently, during an interview with another African-American reporter, Kaepernick called his parents "problematic," saying they raised him in a racist manner.
Kaepernick said, “I know my parents love me, but there were still very problematic things that I went through. I think it was important to show that no, this can happen in your own home and how we move forward collectively while addressing the racism that is being perpetuated.”
He continued, telling the tragic tale of when he got cornrows and his white mother said, “Oh, you look like a little thug.”
Whitlock fires back, “If you’re so stupid as to think cornrows make you black ... the only thing that can make you black is the color of your skin. That’s the only qualification.”
He continues that if he’d gotten cornrows, his black father “would have smacked me on sight and would have been like ‘what are you doing? You think you went to college to come out and dress like some thug straight out of prison?’ That’s what parents do.”
Kaepernick had two parents who loved him, raised him, and kept a roof over his head. They wanted him to succeed. His lack of gratitude is so overwhelmingly obvious that it’s blinding.
Whitlock hammers this point home, saying that “these young people that have no gratitude for being Americans and for being born here and appreciate the people — white and black — who sacrificed so that we could live in the land of the free, the home of the brave, the land with all this opportunity — there’s no gratitude for it.”
He explains that it’s because they have “no connection to God. Because when you have a connection to God, you’re overwhelmed with gratitude. You know how flawed you are and so you don’t go on TV and take a dump on Mama and Daddy.”
Whitlock finishes by calling Kaepernick “absolutely sick, and all the people gassing [him] up, they’re sick [too].”
