Chuck D Really Have Kaep's Back? Boycott the NFL

Spike Lee Colin Kaepernick

Spike Lee and others plan to rally outside NFL headquarters in NY this month to protest what they call the league's blacklisting of Colin Kaepernick for his political views, but the controversial quarterback also find supports among some of Chicago's activists.

The original petition by Unstripped Voice stated that once it reached 100,000 signatures, it would be delivered to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and every NFL team owner.

"I did not organize and set up this protest", Lee said in a tweet.

The former San Francisco 49er ignited a firestorm previous year when he refused to stand for the National Anthem in protest of what he called the oppression of black people.

Many think Kaepernick is being blackballed after his kneeling protests during the national anthem on the sidelines of NFL games last season. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. The professional athlete is no longer on a team and is now a free agent.

Kaepernick started 11 games for the 49ers in the 2016 season, throwing 16 touchdowns and four interceptions.

"I do not have an update on Colin Kaepernick or our quarterback situation", said Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. "And what has happened to Colin Kaepernick has proven that we have not; that what he has spoken out against has been on our TV screens, has been on our social media, and we have chosen to be willfully ignorant to the realities that exist in this country around racial and economic inequity", she said.
