However I Still Support My Brother And His Stance On The Injustices In The USA— Spike Lee (@SpikeLee) August 8, 2017Lee has been openly questioning why the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been a free agent since opting out of his contract in March.“How Is It That There Are 32 NFL Teams And Kap Is Still A Free Agent? WTF. Smells MAD Fishy To Me, Stinks To The High Heavens,” Lee wrote on Instagram in March after having brunch with Kaepernick. “The Question Remains What Owner And GM Is Going To Step Up And Sign Colin So Their Team Has A Better Chance To WIN? What Crime Has Colin Committed? Look At The QB’s Of All 32 Teams. This Is Some Straight Up Shenanigans, Subterfuge, Skullduggery And BS. Ya Dig?”Kaepernick drew the ire of some die-hard NFL fans last season when he refused to stand for the national anthem. Although the star reportedly won’t continue his protest this season, he has been passed over by teams including the Seattle Seahawks and the Miami Dolphins.“The Dolphins aren’t anti-Black, they’re anti-idiot,” Fox News host Jesse Watters said of the team’s choice to go with Jay Cutler on “The Five” Monday, Aug. 7. “[Kaepernick] lacks respect and he’s bad for team chemistry and he’s bad for the franchise. … Colin Kaepernick wore a [former Cuban prime minister Fidel] Castro T-shirt, they’re gonna boo him outta there.”[email protected] on @Kaepernick7 controversy: “The @MiamiDolphins aren’t anti-black.

Cole blasted at his concert ahead of meeting with the QB, according to Billboard.“Baltimore, the type of s— that’s happening here, don’t you think somebody should risk they’re whole livelihood and their whole life to talk about this s—?” Cole said during thie 4 Your Eyez Only tour stop Sunday, Aug. 6. “Even if it cost them they money, they job, they life? Don’t that sound like Colin Kaepernick? Don’t that sound like what he doing? And he trying to come to Baltimore, the city that seems to need that s— for real.” read more
