Even before Black athletes began speaking out in disagreement with Colin Kaepernick‘s silent and harmless protest in response to police brutality and shootings, the tap-dancing coon parade has been growing in numbers. We’ve taken a look at the 12 Biggest Coons In The Game, aimed at Black entertainers and figures who love to shuck and jive.
The number of people we could name has grown just this month alone, with beloved Hall of Fame boxer George Foreman and Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy joining the fray to throw jabs at Kaep. It isn’t just baffling that these Black figures spoke their opinions, it’s the fact they’re aiming their criticism at a man who is actually risking all he has to help others that look like them.
Then there’s a bevy of Black public figures who did their little shuffle foot routine when President Barack Obama was in office, and it goes without saying that we’re surely going to miss some people because it’s been THAT many over the years that jumped the Black pride ship.
Hit the flip to see the 12 Biggest Coons In The Game, along with the varying reasons we’re slapping them with the white bread and red kool-aid designation.
