NFL Networks Protest In Support Of Kaepernick

Wednesday, August 23 at 5:00 PM

NFL Networks

10950 Washington BLvd.,, Culver City, California 90232

This L.A. NFL protest is in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in New York City.

There is no doubt that Kaepernick is being blackballed by NFL owners for exercising his first amendment rights in a non-violent peaceful statement. Kaepernick was trying to draw attention to racial profiling, police abuse and the disproportionate amount of people of color being killed unjustly by law enforcement nationally.


The NFL is a form of the modern-day plantation, most of the players are black and the ownership is all white. They're treating Kaepernick like a runaway slave, making him an example so other players get the message. Do not get too uppity or we will blackball you. The parallels are very much like slavery, except the players are million-dollar slaves under contract who have made billions for the NFL.

African-Americans, Latinos and anyone who believes in social justice should boycott all things NFL. Kaepernick stood up for all people of color when he didn’t have to and could lose millions of dollars in salary and endorsements. Kaepernick wasn’t in danger. He has lead his team to a Super Bowl appearance and has enough money and fame to deal with the police if he had too. It’s African-Americans and Latinos who continue to be in danger of being unjustly killed by police. It’s our sons and daughters. Kaepernick realized that and took a knee for us and used his platform to highlight those facts nationally. Najee Ali National Action Network.
