In the week of the first presidential debate, neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton but Colin Kaepernick occupied the cover of Time. On Tuesday, Kaepernick was asked if he saw the 98-minute back-and-forth.
“I watched a little bit of it,” Kaepernick told reporters, via Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group. “To me it was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates. Both are proven liars and it almost seems they’re trying to debate who’s less racist. At this point . . . you have to pick the lesser of two evils but in the end it’s still evil.”
Plenty of people feel the same way as Kaepernick. Regardless, in a nation of 319 million people, these are our two primary options.
At a time when the country seems to be more divided than ever, we seem to be destined to become even more divided, regardless of the outcome of the election.
