Charlamagne Tha God isn’t feeling Colin Kaepernick’s letter to the New York Jets asking to become a practice team member. During Wednesday’s edition of The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne called the letter “pitiful.”
“It’s tragically said and down right pathetic that Colin Kapernick wrote that letter,” Charlamagne said. “He has let his setbacks become his identity. God has exalted Colin Kaepernick into a position of leadership in regards to activism and it pains me to see him begging to be in a league that he compared to a plantation.
“I hate that he can never speak for himself. He always has someone speaking for him or putting out a message for him and that’s so wack to me. I wish Colin the best in all his endeavors but this begging the same people he called racist for an opportunity is absolutely pitiful to me.”
In case you missed it, Colin Kaepernick is attempting to make the New York Jets practice squad, and J. Cole is down to help. Hitting Instagram, Cole released a letter from Kaep to the Jets’ General Manager, Joe Douglas.
“I asked Colin @kaepernick7 if I could share this letter with the world. He was reluctant,” Cole wrote. “My argument was that I believe the people and all organizations should know the truth about how hard he works and how much he still wants to play. And always has. In the end, he agreed to let me.”
Kaepernick detailed how his abilities could prep the Jets’ defense for future games against mobile quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, and Jalen Hurts in the letter. Kaep also stated he was not attempting to undermine the current starting quarterback, Zach Wilson.
