The NFL boycott like Ferguson was hijacked. It didn’t start with Kaep. It started with the St.Louis Rams. They not only did ‘Hands Up Don’t Shoot’, they refused to stay in St. Louis. The promise of a new $2 billion dollar stadium did not move them. The whole team picked up and left.

The NFL was quick to jump out in front of this… this was waaaaaay bigger than taking a knee. Enter Kaep. Then Deray. Deflect to veterans and the flag. Now the protests are a war of words, tweets and kneeling.

Which do you think the NFL would rather have?

The NFL protests… Its been a year, a pissing competition between Trump, the NFL and players. Nothing has changed, police are still brutalizing and murdering black people with impunity. Strong, wealthy black men are still on their knees when they have wealth and real means to create lobbyists for black issues such as police brutality or better yet, create their own league as the ultimate sign of protest. But they don’t. Instead the charade continues. If not for the NFL protests viewership would be down. It was already in decline before Kaep took a knee. Trump his billionaire NLF owners will do/say anything to keep you watching… even if it’s to see who takes a knee. And really, what does it mean if they play regardless? People will say they’re increasing awareness. People are aware. The whole world is aware of how police brutalize black people. Ferguson increased awareness. Every high profile police shooting or murder of black people increased awareness… and for all that awareness nothing has changed. And you’re still watching.
