During a meeting between NFL owners and players, free-agent safety Eric Reid criticized owners for failing to support Colin Kaepernick as he became one of the faces of the league's protest movement. "I feel like he was hung out to dry," Reid said of his former teammate during the meeting, per the New York Times' Ken Belson and Mark Leibovich. "Nobody stepped up and said we support Colin's right to do this. We all let him become Public Enemy No. 1 in this country, and he still doesn't have a job." ✊ #IStandForColin #ImWithKap #ImWithEric #InKapWeTrust #ColinKaepernick #Kaepernick @kaepernick7 @e_reid35

This is the bullshit that no one wants to talk about. They are co-opting the movement to dilute it. Pay attention! #staywoke #Kaepernick #meekmill @meekmill

The NFL draft is tomorrow. 49ers pick at #9 and Raiders at #10. I’m a football fan myself - curious to hear if you were in charge of drafting who would you draft? Pick your top 3 mock draft in order from pick 1 to 3. Both Niner & Raider I want to hear your reason why the first pick. GO! 🏈 📸: KaeperNEEKS @ni_co_lo

Amnesty International awarded #ColinKaepernick its Ambassador of Conscience Award on Saturday for his public protest against racial and social injustice. "The Ambassador of Conscience award celebrates the spirit of activism and exceptional courage, as embodied by Colin Kaepernick," Salil Shetty, the human rights group's secretary-general, said in a statement. "He is an athlete who is now widely recognized for his activism because of his refusal to ignore or accept racial discrimination." The award is Amnesty International's highest honor, according to its website. Past winners include #NelsonMandela, #MalalaYousafzai, #U2, #AliciaKeys and #AiWeiwei. #Kaepernick was presented with the award at a ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Keep politics out of sport is something often bandied around, generally when the message is one that some people don't want to hear.
@Amnesty International awarded Colin @Kaepernick7 its Ambassador of Conscience Award on Saturday for his public protest against racial and social injustice.
Protests and sporting boycotts against apartheid in South Africa such as the Lions tour to South Africa cancelled in 1986 added serious weight to the economic boycotts that came into place and in the end Nelson Mandela was freed...
Keep on keeping on Kaep ✊🏾 & congratulations on your award! 👏🏾

This week we discuss the news that @adidas is flirting with the idea of signing @kaepernick7. But only IF he gets signed by an @nfl team. The idea being that they want it to be ALL about his skill and athleticism, and not wanting the public perception to be that they signed him for his controversy and newsworthiness.

@nike hasn't been having the best weeks lately. Their head of diversity called it quits after surveying the problems they've been having within the company. Makes you wonder how bad things really are there at @nike World HQ.
Brands like @supremenewyork and @vans show improvement in favor amongst teens. Wonder if kids nowadays have more disposable income than ever before?
And in This Week in Stupid, we try to call former @fatjoe business partner, and co-founder of Up NYC, Scott Spina, who was charged with, and confessed to, fraud. He allegedly took customer's credit card information to obtain over $750,000 worth of money and goods. He's even accused of promising to seed athletes and celebrities shoes and never following through. So much for being the plug. He does call back and directs us to talk to his lawyer... #Ooouuu.

To end the show, the we try to get to the bottom of @guru_knows secret that he mistakenly volunteered on the show last week. Allegedly there's audio of a sneaker deal, involving him, that went horribly wrong.

And we’re back, did Nikki box her self out of the top spot ,tambourine players. will Colin Kaepernic continues to take a knee if signed , @genarlow and @k._white_ join to discuss their non profit #brokenroadstoredemption #atlanta #culture #podcast #hiphop #politics #music #nikiminaj #tambourine #blacklove #kaepernick #billcosby
