Stephen A. Smith blasted Colin Kaepernick for being a “flaming hypocrite” after the NFL star didn’t exercise his 15th Amendment right to vote in the 2016 election.
Colin sparked a ton of controversy with his protest of the National Anthem and even I have to admit I am taken aback and disappointed to learn he didn’t even vote. Really, bruh?!
Stephen A. almost blew a gasket as he slammed the San Francisco 49ers QB:
As far as I’m concerned, Colin Kaepernick is irrelevant. I don’t want to hear from him again. I don’t want to hear a damn word about anything that he has to say about our nation, the issues that we have, racial injustices, needing change, etc. He comes across as a flaming hypocrite. As far as I’m concerned, I’m not interested in a damn word that he has to say. I hope he goes away. He’s lucky to be in the league right now. He’s 0-3 as a starter, completing 52 percent of his passes. He doesn’t look good at the quarterback spot. I don’t care about rust or anything else.
My days of rooting for him have come to an end, and here is why. As an African-American in this country you have to be sensitive to the fact that Civil Rights legislation was passed in the mid 1960’s, ok? When we talk about the battles that have been fought, the things that have happened to people, what they’ve had to endure, the fact that folks ended up dying for the right for him to have the right to vote in this great country of ours, you have the opportunity to vote. And what exactly is voting all about? Ladies and Gentlemen, you know what voting is? Do you not understand that that’s the reason why we’re the greatest country on the planet Earth?
