OJ did a long interview with the Buffalo News and they asked him about Colin Kaepernick.
Simpson generally agrees with the president about Colin Kaepernick and other players who’ve demonstrated during the national anthem before games.
Kaepernick in 2016 started a controversial movement while with Simpson’s hometown 49ers. The quarterback knelt during “The Star-Spangled Banner” to protest racial oppression.
Trump has slammed Kaepernick, other athlete protestors and the NFL. The president has called for those players to be fired and for fans to boycott the league for allowing displays of dissent.
“I think Colin made a mistake,” Simpson said. “I really appreciate what he was trying to say. I thought he made a bad choice in attacking the flag.
“I grew up at a time when deacons were in the KKK. I don’t disrespect the Bible because of those guys. The flag shouldn’t be disrespected because of what cops do. The flag represents what we want America to be.”
Always remember this is a man who said….
“I’m not black, I’m OJ”
