TanyaFree.com/Urban Views Weekly Poll

The NAACP has called for a meeting with the NFL to discuss the fate of Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose protest of racial injustice appears to have hampered his chances of playing this season. Kaepernick has yet to be signed to a team with just two weeks before the start of the new NFL season . Many feel he is being blackballed for kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police brutality against African Americans.

Recently, over 1,000 supporters wearing jerseys with Kaepernick’s name were seen protesting outside the NFL’s offices in Manhattan chanting, “boycott,boycott”. Many fans and businesses are threatening to boycott the NFL and not watch any games if Kaepernick is not signed to a team.

What’s your take? How do you feel about and would you support a boycott of the NFL if Kaepernick remains unsigned?

He is not being discriminated against but he is blackballed.An employer has the right to hire or not hire anyone they choose.

I am not boycotting over this. We have much more important issues

This is ridiculous.The NFL does not hire anyone.Teams hire players.

6. Stephen said...

Why aren't his fellow players boycotting? Some are taking a knee,but not jeopardizing their careers. How will this end police brutality?

Why punish the NFL for bad cops and a disgruntled spoiled millionaire quarterback.

12. RobertBrown said...

There is no NFL requirement to salute the flag,but could it be proven that he is being blackballed.No,if he was as good as Cam Newton,he would be playing

13. NFL fan said...

I will boycott any team that signs him.
