Shaq SLAM DUNKS Response To Kaepernick's Protest

When retired NBA player Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal appeared on Fox News recently, he was asked his take as a black athlete on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem protest.

SHAQ: "To each his own. It's something I wouldn't do. His comments were [that] there are injustices. Me, personally, I would probably go about it a different way. My question is, what happened last year? Why didn't you decide to do this last year, or the year before that, or the year before that. I don't know Colin, but to each his own. I would never do that. My father was a military man. He protected this country. My uncles are in law enforcement. They go out and work hard every day. There are just other ways to get your point across."


HOST: "You're an African-American, and a lot of people feel as though, from your perspective, you should be standing with Colin Kaepernick. But you also are pro-military and pro-cop. Can you be both?"


SHAQ: "Yes, I can be both. My thing is, you have to enter onto the scene one way. People like Muhammed Ali and Bill Russell, they were one way their whole career. You can't show us something and then go to another because of certain issues. Again, I'm aware of all the issues, but my question is, why didn't you do it last year? Or why didn't you do it when you first entered the NFL? Again, I don't know Colin. To each his own. It's his constitutional right to do that, but I would never do that."
