Man, let’s just get straight to the point here. Michael Vick is the LAST human being who should be advising Colin Kaepernick on ANYTHING, son. Like, this dude can’t be fucking serious, man! Now, maybe Vick is trying to play nice since a dark cloud has followed his entire NFL career. However; the mere suggestion that a haircut would improve Kaepernick’s standing shows that he’s an unadulterated clown. Fam, someone please get Michael Vick the fuck outta here!
So, the tomfoolery began when Vick appeared on Fox Sports 1‘s Speak for Yourself show. When the discussion turned to how Kaepernick could get another job in the league, Vick said the following:
“The first thing we got to get Colin to do is cut his hair. I don’t think he should represent himself in that way in terms of the hairstyle. Just go clean cut. Why not? Perception and image is everything. I love the guy to death, but I want him to succeed in and off the field, and this has to be a start for him.”
Wait, what? Huh? How exactly is he representing himself, Vick? Last time I checked, that’s how hair grows out of a Black person’s scalp. So, is he insinuating that there’s something wrong with the natural state of his hair? Ohhhh, I get it! “Clean cut” is just another way of saying “acceptable for White people.” Yeah, I see what Vick is doing here. Basically, if Kaepernick wants another shot at football, he needs to appease the owners and the coaches. The same individuals who don’t understand his cause in the first place. Shit, fantastic advice, Vick!
To be clear, Kaepernick’s current status isn’t about his ability. Now, is he an elite quarterback? No. But, can someone honestly say that out of the 100+ total QB roles in the league, he can’t lock down ONE roster spot? Man, give me a fucking break, son! This man has played in a Super Bowl, fam! I don’t buy that line of reasoning at all, man.
The fact of the matter is, the powers that be hate what he stands for and don’t want to deal with him. Plain and simple, bruh. Hell, one NFL executive compared Kaepernick to Rae Carruth, a former player who MURDERED A WOMAN! Somehow, kneeling for the National Anthem is equivalent to homicide, man. With that being said, Vick’s comments are completely rooted in racial conditioning. He’s conditioned to think that Black people need to behave in a certain way to be welcomed by White people. By and by, fuck ALL of that, son!
In the end, Michael Vick has some nerve, fam. Frankly, ever since his dog fighting scandal, White people have hated him everywhere he went. Ultimately, the Black community has been the entity who has continued to champion him. In my eyes, he’s spitting in our faces by taking this stance. All in all, I hope he eventually learns the gravity of his fuckery. LC out.
P.S. Kaepernick is righteously petty for tweeting the definition of Stockholm syndrome. In the spirit of Bruce Lee, that’s the art of fighting without fighting. That is all.
