Way to help send us back to 1949, Colin…
Despite championing the Black Lives Matter movement for months, the San Francisco ’49ers quarterback dropped the ball when it came to electing Hillary Clinton to the Presidency this week… because we’re hearing he didn’t vote at all!
Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday, Colin defended his decision to ride the pine during the biggest moment in modern American history, saying:
“I really didn’t play too close of attention because I’ve been very disconnected from the systematic oppression as a whole. So, for me, it’s another face that’s going to be the face of that system of oppression. And, to me, it didn’t really matter who went in there. The system still remains intact that oppresses people of color.”
It “didn’t really matter”?? How’d that pay off, Colin?
Sure, it’s impossible to tell if Hillary really would have become an advocate for people of color or not… but at least she’s not actively, openly racist!
Plus, his vote could have potentially helped repeal the death penalty in California — which is something we’d imagine someone so vocal about institutional brutality against African Americans would support…
What do YOU think of Colin’s decision not to vote AT ALL??
