Colin Kaepernick, a former NFL quarterback known for his anti-American and anti-police activism, is making headlines again.
This time, it's for his seemingly desperate attempts to rejoin the NFL—a league he once labeled as "racist". Of course, Kaepernick is facing backlash for the move.
Notably, Radio host Charlamagne Tha God, criticized Kaepernick's efforts as "tragically sad and downright pathetic," especially given that Kaepernick is asking to be part of a league that he compared to a "plantation".
The Irony of Kaepernick's Request
Colin Kaepernick has been a polarizing figure, especially for his kneeling protests during the national anthem to protest so-called "police brutality".
His activism led to a lot of debates but also made him a controversial figure in the sports world.
Now, he is seeking to return to the NFL by sending a letter to the New York Jets' General Manager, Joe Douglas, asking to be part of the team's practice squad.
The irony is palpable: Kaepernick is almost begging for a spot in a league that he has openly criticized as racist.
Charlamagne Tha God's Take
Radio host Charlamagne Tha God didn't hold back in his criticism of Kaepernick's recent actions.
On his show, the Breakfast Club, Charlamagne described Kaepernick's letter as "tragically sad and downright pathetic".
He went on to say that Kaepernick has let his setbacks define him and criticized him for not speaking for himself but letting others convey his messages.
Charlamagne's sentiments echo a broader feeling that Kaepernick's actions are contradictory and raise questions about his sincerity.
Colin Kaepernick's desperate attempts to rejoin the NFL have stirred up a new wave of criticism. His actions are seen as ironic and contradictory, especially given his past criticisms of the league.
We honor the dedication and resilience of our law enforcement agencies and military, who serve and protect our nation every day. Kaepernick's story serves as a reminder of the importance of consistency and sincerity when advocating for social issues.
