    That's exactly the point the article makes :facepalm: They promoted Blackness the same as Colin ...


    "he’s being blackballed because the NFL has (for decades) persuaded its patrons that what he is doesn’t exist: a three-dimensional, wholly human Black athlete"

    The Seven Lamest Excuses Black Folk are Using to Watch the NFL this Year


    ... THIS IS ABOUT WEAK *** BLACK PEOPLE

    As a Black man that could have been Philando Castile, married to my Black Wife that could have been Sandra Bland, with Black children that could have been Tamir Rice, I feel like I’m in the f*cking twilight zone and can’t understand why we are even debating if whether or not we should be supporting the NFL when it has been reported several times that the league itself has persuaded owners to steer clear of Kaepernick ...
