In Rome, the Gladiator Games were held to keep the poor, unemployed and oppressed entertained and distracted. Ever noticed how NFL or NBA games are usually the topic of conversation amongst groups of Black men instead of the dire issues effecting our community? Too many of us are distracted. People like @kaepernick7 stick their necks out for our human rights and when they are mistreated we are silent. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated, "We believe strongly in patriotism. It's important to have respect for your country and for our flag..." What if the country doesn't respect you? What is the anthem wasn't written for you? Kaepernick silently protested the national anthem which was written when African Americans were still enslaved. The freedom that was spoken of didn't include us. He is the definition of patriotism. He's seeking "liberty and justice for all" . The racist Americans who have an issue with him are not patriots as they claim. If they were, they would have been kneeling with him for the rights of all Americans. The NFL most likely wants to please the racist fans by not employing him this season. And before y'all start saying Kaepernick is not that good, he's better than other QBs who have jobs. If we don't protest and hit them in their pockets this will continue...they make money through t.v. ratings and ticket sells. This is why the Birmingham bus boycott worked. They don't care until they lose money. If you refuse to boycott, at least speak up for Kaepernick. If we continue to support organizations that don't support us how can we ever progress?
