Snoop Dogg was the guest on today’s episode of UNDISPUTED with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe and Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing National Anthem protest and his recent praise of late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro came up as topics. Snoop says he feels like Kaepernick needs to make a choice about whether he wants to be a football player or a revolutionary, but that kinda sounds like a cop-out to me.
Snoop’s point is that now that Kaep is starting for the Niners, it will somehow be too difficult for him to continue his protest. I say, bullshit. This guy gets paid millions of dollars to run an NFL offense, I’m pretty confident he can multi-task. I don’t think it’s necessarily true that he didn’t have a plan when he started his protest, and I think that what he has already done is plenty considering the country is still talking about it.
As for his praise of Fidel Castro, that’s far more complicated. Even if you appreciate some of Fidel’s revolutionary aspirations and philosophies, it’s very hard to praise a guy who is responsible for inflicting decades upon decades of pain and suffering upon his own people. I think Shannon articulated this pretty well when he talked about how many American’s don’t really understand the Cuba situation and only see Castro as this revolutionary hero who stood up to the mighty empire of the United States. It’s so much more complicated than that and I don’t know that Kaep fully grasps all of that history.
