A ridiculous column from David Whitley of AOL Sporting News had people buzzing on Twitter. Whitley compares 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's tattoos to those of prisoners. Sloppy, poor, played-out. Do better.
Kaepernick's parents were among those upset at the column.
Words from our friend Vinny Goodwill.
Just read David Whitley's column...terrible, lazy. I see we can never advance the conversation— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) November 30, 2012
I don't get how a lazy column turns into a referendum on what black folks do wrong or what black athletes do wrong... I quit— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) November 30, 2012
But, for those who don't know about Kaepernick's past, here's an excellent look from 2011.
