    ...Instead of acknowledging the specifics of the situation, however, Moore lumped Kaepernick in with “other professional athletes” who also work on “social justice issues,” then cast the broad category as deserving of “our attention and action.”

    Players Coalition earns big win on election night in Florida with Amendment 4

    Players Coalition earns big win on election night in Florida with Amendment 4

    Amendment 4 is a significant achievement for a group of athletes that formed in the aftermath of Colin Kaepernick’s protests and splintered to some extent over the many months since.
    sports.yahoo.com

    ...Amendment 4 passed Tuesday night, with more than 60 percent of the popular vote, and will restore the vote to roughly 1.4 million people, as a discrete group that would constitute one of the biggest cities in America. Florida has the highest rate of disenfranchised citizens in the nation.
