Spike Lee Colin Kaepernick
His activism sparked both outrage and support from people across the aisle, and now with just one month until the regular season begins, as a free agent, Kaepernick still hasn't been signed on to a team. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way", Kaepernick told NFL media. But after a preseason that saw multiple less qualified passers land jobs, critics remain certain that Kaepernick is essentially being blackballed for kneeling during national anthems-which he did to protest racial injustice.
Fox Sports 1's Jason Whitlock said Tuesday that the Colin Kaepernick saga is beginning to look like a "shakedown" of National Football League owners.
"It is clear [that] the NFL's intent to make an example out of Colin Kaepernick is rooted in White supremacy, which dismisses the reality of the dehumanization of Black bodies in America", The People's Consortium's president Rev. Stephen A. Green says in the statement.
Aside from the various home-opener demonstrations, a major pro-Kaepernick protest is scheduled to take place in Manhattan outside the NFL league office on August 23.
