Michael Vick who probably knows better than damn near anybody how hard it is to get back in the NFL after being ostracized over killing dogs and running a dog fighting ring. So what was his advice to Colin Kaepernick who is left without a team because he has used his NFL platform to promote social activism??
CUT YOUR HAIR! * rolls eyes in Titus Andromendon*
Along with his growing interest in social issues in 2015, Kaepernick began growing his hair, and by the 2016 preseason games, when he first declined to stand for the national anthem, he had a sizable Afro. According to Vick, the free agent quarterback should “try to be presentable,” even if that means simply wearing his hair more tightly to his head.
After Jason Whitlock suggested to Vick on Fox Sports’s “Speak for Yourself” that Kaepernick needed to speak up about his desire to play football, the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback said, “The first thing we’ve got to get Colin to do is cut his hair.”
“Listen, I’m not up here to try to be politically correct,” Vick, 37, continued. “Even if he puts cornrows in there, I don’t think he should represent himself in that way, in terms of just the hairstyle. Just go clean-cut, you know, why not? You’re already dealing with a lot, a lot of controversy surrounding this issue, and the most important thing he needs to do is just try to be presentable.”
Ok, Mike, I have supported yo black ass through ALL OF YOUR TRIALS and TRIBULATIONS and if you think they LET YOU BACK IN THE NFL because you cut your braids, you are def in the SUNKEN PLACE!
Why doe Kaepernick have to cut his hair when dudes ALL OVER the league are wearing dreads and twist and LOVED by fans all over?? Have you been to Arizona to a Cardinals game? I have and let me tell you how much those WHITE PEOPLE LOVE SOME Larry Fitzgerald! Long ass, nappy dreads and all.
It’s not his HAIR that’s keeping him from a job sweetie, it’s the MESSAGE he has been spreading. Troy Polamalu, Domato Peko, Richard Sherman, Al Harris, David Bakhtiari and Josh Sitton (just to name a few…I can go on FOREVER naming players with crazy hair) all had long crazy hair and nobody ever told them to cut it to be accepted in a league that has forgiven domestic abusers, convicted felons, and that accused rapist Ben Roethlisberger?
While the 49er’s are HONORED for winning an award for Humanity, Kaepernick gets shunned because #BlackLivesMatter is his champion cause. I suggest you go listed to “The Story of OJ” by Jay-Z cause it doesn’t matter if he wears a dread, fro, or a bald fade, he still a NIGGA…and so are you! *Jay Z voice*
