George Foreman is an American success story, and he’s not checking for anyone that doesn’t give full respect to the flag.
Tuesday’s Offended America Podcast, with Jacob Wohl and Hunter Avallone, featured the two-time world heavyweight boxing champion, supreme entrepreneur, African-American hero and Olympic Gold Medalist. The Foreman Grill king and unapologetic American patriot discussed the controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick’s stance and Kevin Durant’s refusal to go to the White House.
Foreman said, I love the United States, and They [Kevin Durant and Colin Kaepernick] havent been brought up with people who were patriotic to even point them in the right direction.”
George Foreman, a long-time Trump supporter, offered words of hope and encouragement to his presidential friend as well.
This is sure to infuriate many Black folk, but, again that issue with disrespecting the flag is far reaching and very complex.
He added A lot of people died so that they can have that privilege, and said The greatest day of my life was when I put on the colors, representing the United States.

According to Wohl’s Medium page Foreman pointed to the idea that young athletes often seek attention by speaking out about politics. He told the story about how he decided not to visit the Nixon White House, and that he still regrets that decision to this day.
He pointed out that in an attempt to copy Muhammad Ali, athletes often make regrettable decision which appear unpatriotic.
More than race, the world is about money and Foreman, like Trump, is a tycoon, having sold more than 100 million units of the famous George Foreman Grill.

Its obvious that Foreman has some very conservative and old school views. Hes very thankful to a country that has brought him success, but also ignores the trauma African-Americans outside of himself have lived under for so many years.
Some would call Foremans criticism of young black athletes taking a stand coonish or an Uncle Tom maneuver.
Theres no doubt George Foreman knows hes Black and has journeyed through the rocky waters of being a young black man in America and risen to incredible heights.
But somebody needs to remind him that the player revolution is on. And this one will be televised.
