Jason Whitlock: NFL Players Are Afraid to Speak About Kaepernick’s Idiocy Because of the Backlash
WHITLOCK: " I don’t understand it myself, tucker. Listen, max Kellermann is a good friend of mine. I have a lot of respect for max. Max is complaining how come no one is supporting Colin Kaepernick? I want to understand why NFL players are not offering voices of dissent? 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. If Colin Kaepernick or any of these players, if you’re a starting NFL quarterback, you have a huge platform and the opportunity to on any TV, radio show you want, any newspaper, magazine article you want and you can legitimately voice your complaints, if you protest during the national anthem, of course there’s going to be a massive amount of people that never hear a word you say, won’t understand your message at all and you can’t tell me that there aren’t NFL players that recognize the stupidity of the style of protest Colin Kaepernick has chosen but they’re all afraid to see it because of the backlash. So again, the cowardess or the real feel is the craziness is where it comes from. "
