#Huntsville, Ala. area clergymen have had enough of #NFL owners' reluctance to employ free agent quarterback #ColinKaepernick in the aftermath of his season-long, silent, non-violent protest of police brutality. So, they're refusing to be entertained by the league's products.
A group of nearly 10 black pastors and Oakwood University president Leslie Pollard announced an "NFL Blackout", a boycot, or "mancot" as they referred to it, of the league. Until Kaepernick, who kneeled during the national anthem throughout 2016 as a member of the 49ers, is signed, the men are encouraging other leaders to refrain from watching NFL games, purchasing NFL-licensed paraphenalia and participating in fantasy football. :
These men will devote themselves to community service, dedicating one to two hours on Sundays for the next 17 weeks to "pouring into" African-American boys and girls, something they'll do even if Kaepernick gets picked up, and prayer for their community and government officials.
