Blacks who stood up for O.J. Simpson may now regret it. The embattled ex-NFL star and actor continues to shun Blackness after receiving support from the Black community following his polarizing murder trial.

During a recent interview with The Buffalo News, Simpson shared his thoughts on Donald Trump and Colin Kaepernick.

When asked about Kaepernick’s choice to kneel during the national anthem, Simpson blasted him for protesting.

“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.”

Simpson continued by saying, “I grew up at a time when deacons were in the KKK. I don’t disrespect the Bible because of those guys,” he said. “The flag shouldn’t be disrespected because of what cops do. The flag represents what we want America to be.”

But while Simpson did not have a problem blasting Kaepernick, he praised Trump.

“The one thing I can say about The Donald is The Donald is fun,” Simpson said. “Well, for a dude — and I consider myself a dude — Donald is a man’s man,” Simpson said.

Simpson ignored Trump’s bigotry, hate and incompetence to speak highly of the current president. On the other hand, he took aim at a Black man for taking a stand against injustice.

Jay-Z’s “The Story of O.J.” is the perfect theme music for Simpson’s life. He’s a Black man who hates being Black and will do anything to regain the respect of White America.

However, White America will never forgive Simpson for being a suspect in the killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
