Colin Kaepernick Implies Mike Vick Has Been Brainwashed by White People



by G. Brown

Usually when the issue of “Black Hair” comes up, it’s about women in the workplace who may be sporting natural locks or braids that are considered ‘inappropriate” for the corporate world.   So how did we leap from White people telling Blacks how to wear their hair, to Blacks telling Black people how to wear their hair for success?

Enter former Steelers, Falcons, Jets and Eagles QB  Mike Vick who decided that all NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick needs to do to land a multi-million dollar contract is assimilate. Vick said while appearing on the FOX sports show “Speak for Yourself”….”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 on and off the field, and this has to be a start for him.”   Clean cut?  So a fro’ or natural represents—what’s the opposite of  ‘clean cut’–a dirty, criminal or thug?

Vick’s comments managed to make him the public enemy of  many football fans  and other former pro ballers.  Wide Receiver Terrell Owens (T.O.) says Vick’s comments about Kaepernick’s  hair  were “ridiculous” and irrelevant saying to TMZ Sports ,”I don’t think that has  anything to do with him not being on the team the way he looks or his hair style.”

And football fans agree Kaepernick’s lack of a contract has nothing to do with his hair and is all about his outspoken stance as a political activist.








Perhaps one of the most emphatic  tweets included this GIF…

Vick seems to have forgotten his own look before the ‘clean cut’ image he now thinks he’s now sporting.  Back when he had long hair that he kept in corn rows, Vick did have an image problem and it had nothing to do with his hair and everything to do dog fighting.  In 2007, Vick was suspended by the NFL for violating player conduct policy when he was tied to a dog fighting operation—a practice that is not only illegal but cruel to the animals. Vick pleaded guilty to the federal charges.  Perhaps Vick was trying to offer some words of wisdom from experience, but it sounded more like a “do what White people want” so you can still have a job.

Apparently, it sounded that way to Colin Kaepernick as well who tweeted a response to Vick’s comment with a definition of  ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ implying that Vick has been brainwashed by White people…

If talent doesn’t get you the job—if know how, skill, hard work and proven leadership doesn’t get you the job,then selling your soul to ‘blend in’ will lose you more than you gain.  Black people have tried bleaching their skin, using harmful products to straighten their hair, surgery to make their noses thinner, implants to change the color of their eyes all to try and be accepted.  If you make changes because you choose to that’s cool, but doing so  in hopes that others will accept you is a slave mentality.  Vick followed up with his comment with a tweet that “I stand by what I’ve said about him…I think he is a great kid who has a bright future…Trust and believe what I said was not in malice.”   Sadly, it was in malice. Sounds like Vick has a case of self-hatred like a lot of brothers and sisters who think if only I were lighter, or White, life would be better.

What do you think…is hair the thing that’s keeping Kaepernick from landing a new contract?  Is Vick right, Black people should assimilate to land a job?  Or are some of the fans right, the only reason why teams are rushing in to hire Kaepernick is because he stood for what he believed by protesting?

    On the one hand, Michael Vick was right for being concerned about his fellow NFL footballer Colin Kaepernick and what not; on the other hand, Kaepernick is a grown man. He can get a haircut anytime he wants; only IF he chooses to. Enough said

    The NFL not only hates black people, they are killing black people. Junior Seau, Dave Duerson, Korey Stringer and Cortez Kennedy were black men who who played in the NFL and died under the age of fifty, FIFTY! Black women, if you truly love the black race and the men in your life, you must do whatever you can to get black men to stop watching football.

    Quote from Dick Gregory, “When I watch football on Sundays, I see slavery all over again. Negroes on the field picking cotton with a football.”

    NFL players Riley Cooper and RItchie Incognito repeatedly said the N word. They are still playing. Colin Kaepernick refuses to stand for the national anthem and he can not get a team to sign him. How many more examples do black men need to realize that the NFL hates black people. #StopWatchingFootball

    BOYCOTT THE NFL! Black men the NFL is racist! They blackballed Kaepernick because he stood up for black empowerment! We can not continue to feed the beast. We can not continue to give our time and money to a business that we don’t own. If it means cutting off the cable cord or the satellite, then do it! #StopWatchingFootball.

    P.S. There are no black owners in the NFL

    I have all the respect in the world for Colin and I agree with Kaiser Soze., Colin’s hair does not have a damn thing to do with it, it is all about his ability to stand up for what he believes in and I am with him one hundred percent! I grew up during the sixties when we had sit-ins to be able to eat at the drug store lunch counter, the Whites did not like it then and some don’t like it now, I say to them again, just get the hell over it!! We are here and here we are going to stay and we will stand up for our rights!! The majority of young people today will NOT stand for the BS!

    Last time I checked, I never saw an afro throw a football. Furthermore, there are white players with long wild hair as well as black players with dreads and they’re all judged by their talent and not their hair. Vick has the slave mentality down to a Third and next he’ll be tap dancing for the cameras in order to get a job. Little does he realize they won’t hire him because of the dog fighting rap because whites value dogs over blacks. So no matter how hard he tries to “assimilate ” he’ll always be black balled.
