Stephen A Smith Goes Off On Colin Kaepernick For His Pro-Fidel Castro Comments


One thing is pretty clear, Stephen A Smith is not a fan of Colin Kaepernick.

Earlier in the week, Kaepernick defended his choice to wear a t-shirt depicting a meeting between Castro and Malcolm X with Miami reporters over a teleconference call.

Kaepernick reportedly praised Castro for ivnesting in Cuba’s education system, as opposed to the American investment in the prison system.


He spoke to reporters after the Dolphins 31-24 victory over the 49ers and explained on his remarks, which he said were taken out of context:

“I agree with the investment in education. I also agree with the investment in free universal health care as well as the involvement in helping end apartheid in South Africa. I would hope that everybody agrees those things are good things. And trying to push the false narrative that I was a supporter of the oppressive things that he did is just not true.”

Kaepernick also received a lot of criticism earlier this month. He didn’t vote in the recent election, saying it would be “hypocritical” of him to cast a ballot.

On Monday, ESPN’s First Take debate panal of Stephen A Smith and Max Kellerman ripped Kapernick into shreads about his comments.
