Jay-Z Rocks Colin Kaepernick Jersey On Saturday Night Live

Las Vegas left and Jay Z performing at a campaign rally for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in Cleveland on Nov. 4 2016

Most of what felt most current wasn't Saturday Night Live's signature sketch material. She sat on the President's knee and begged him not to tweet mean things.

Hov wore a black custom Colin Kaepernick #7 jersey during his first song of the night, "Bam", for which he brought out Damien Marley.


The display comes after Jay-Z reportedly turned down the opportunity to perform this season's Super Bowl haftime show and opened the door for Justin Timberlake to negotiate a deal instead.

That's not to say that all the comedy parts of the show had no weight. Like when Michael Che unloaded on Donald Trump in way that felt more direct and Last Week Tonight-ish than Weekend Updates of the past. "In one month, you've mishandled Puerto Rico, DACA, the National Football League - it's like whenever anybody darker than your golf trousers has a problem, you're thinkin", "How can I make this worse?'" "It's like whenever anybody darker than your golf trousers has a problem, you're thinkin", "How can I make this worse?'" This, in addition to the Tidal X: Puerto Rico hurricane relief charity set up on his streaming service, marks a banner week for Jay-Z. But there is a thread that joins Kaepernick, Jay-Z and Che. Or, as BuzzFeed recently pointed out, "Black Athletes Are Black People, And Black People Are Dying".
