Jerry Rice is team All Lives Matter. The NFL Hall of Famer did his best I’m not Black I’m OJ Simpson impression by going on Twitter to chime in on Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand during the singing of the National Anthem at NFL games.
“All lives matter,” tweeted Rice. “So much going on in this world today.Can we all just get along! Colin,I respect your stance but don’t disrespect the Flag.”
The additional irony here is Rice quoting Rodney King, whose brutal beatdown was caught on tape, yet the all the officers were acquitted. This of course led to the infamous L.A. riots.
Was Rice aware of this when choosing his words? We’re going to guess not.
Rice also says he respects Kaepernicks stance—but can he really do so while saying “all lives matter”? As expected, Twitter is now in full attack mode thanks to the tone deafness and tap dancing coon nature of Rice’s message.
