Sports Journalist: NFL Players Are Afraid to Speak About Kaepernick’s ‘Idiocy’

Sports journalist Jason Whitlock appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday to speak about the lack of response to NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s protest against the Star-Spangled Banner in the name of oppression against the black community in America.

Whitlock — who is African American — said he doesn’t understand Kaepernick’s method of protest and says he thinks many NFL players would agree with him. “There’s NFL players, black and white, that know if you really want to address police brutality, social injustice, inequality in this country, protesting the national anthem is the perfect way for your message to get completely lost,” he said.

The journalist continued to speak out against the “idiocy” and “stupidity” of what Kaepernick is doing. Watch the clip above to see what he really thinks of the national anthem protest.
