Kaepernick praises Castro, then plays in Miami

Kaepernick praises Castro, then plays in Miami

Well, the man has plenty of cojones.

Brains? Not so much.

  2. Kaepernick barely praised him at all, and only in the context at taking a swipe at a U.S Government policy.

    My guess is that Kaepernick barely knows anything about Castro one way or the other. Whether that means a man of his age who was born long after the Cuban Missile Crisis not knowing much about Castro means he has very few brains is another matter.

    This, to me, was a clear case of a reporter (who is of Cuban Heritage and is a sports reporter) who took offense at Kaepernick for previously (not in Miami) wearing a shirt with a picture Malcolm X meeting with Fidel Castro.

    I think this clearly is a case of this reporter who wanted to be offended and, not surprisingly, finding a reason to be offended.

    His view that because Kaepernick wore that shirt that he must approve of Castro, is a logical fallacy known as 'hasty generalization.'

    So, in my opinion, this reporter: brains? Not so much.

    Of course, that is also a hasty generalization. But then, I'm mainly making a joke and I'm not offended by anything here, except from those who mindlessly agree with this reporter's attack on Kaepernick but haven't read the actual incident of their meeting as he reported.

  3. I'll also point out this seems to be the reaction of some of those who don't like Kaepernick:

    Kaepernick comments on the U.S with a criticism that may not be fair depending on the full context: "Kaepernick is terrible, hang him!"

  4. The 49ers are 1-10. The only people who are going to hang him are the season's tickets holders.

    (Although he did play well yesterday.)
