Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick ripped the National Football League for running propaganda about caring for black lives.
Colin and the BLM movement has extracted major concessions from the NFL this year in the aftermath of the tragic Floyd death.
Colin said, “While the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about Black Life, they are still actively blackballing Eric Reid @E_Reid35 for fighting for the Black community.”
“Eric set 2 franchise records last year, and is one of the best defensive players in the league,” he added.
From The Daily Wire:
Reid was the first player to take part in Kaepernick’s kneeling protest and, when Kaepernick remained unsigned following his decision to turn down a one-year contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers, he co-signed a grievance against the NFL claiming that Kaepernick and players who supported his social justice efforts were being blacklisted from the league.
Kaepernick claimed that the owners were conspiring with each other — and, even, allegedly, with President Donald Trump — to lock him out of playing again in the NFL.
The pair eventually settled. Reid went on to play for the Panthers, but Kaepernick went unsigned. He has now been out of the league since the 2017 season and, despite efforts on the part of NFL commissioner Roger Goddell, remains out of the league.
” I would love to see him in the National Football League, I know there’s tons of fans who would love to see him in the National Football League but where Colin sits right now in America is where he is playing football or not, he started a conversation on a national level,” Goddell said in an interview last week. He did say, however, that Kaepernick “isn’t currently part of the conversation from within the league.”
Reid told Deadspin last week that there has been some interest: “My agents have been in communications with teams daily, but there have been no developments.”
