Free Agent Britt McHenry Went In On Free Agent Colin Kaepernick Over His July 4th Criticism

It turns out Colin Kaepernick isn't a fan of July 4th.  Big surprise there.

It also turns out Britt McHenry isn't a fan of Kaepernick's take on America's birthday.  So she took to her blog and let the blackballed quarterback have it:

Most recently, on the Fourth of July, there was a tweet asking how Americans could “truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs?”

I’ll tell you how, Colin. Americans can celebrate the official birth of this nation because despite all its flaws, for one day, there’s a reminder of unity no matter how many efforts you make to dismantle it.

While you focus on your philanthropic efforts, which are admirable, perhaps you can also employ that same effort to go into a voting booth. If you’re going to continually complain about the perceived slights and rights you don’t have, perhaps take the right you do have and back it up.

That's probably going to help her land another job in sports media.
