NFL Sponsors Boycott – J. Cole

Rapper, J. Cole, has called for a boycott against the NFL.  President Donald Trump upset many after he proclaimed that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired.  Numerous NFL players, including members of the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars have responded to Trump’s comments.

On Saturday, MLB player, Bruce Maxwell, became the first professional baseball player to #TakeAKnee during the national anthem.

In the tweets below, J. Cole goes off on the NFL and Donald Trump.  Cole has been showing his support for Kaepernick since the beginning and I love it.  The rapper understands the importance of the greater good and knows that the only way we’ll be able to overcome racism is by coming together.

The NFL boycotted against Colin Kaepernick and now fans are boycotting against the NFL.

Ray Lewis recently took a knee alongside the Baltimore Ravens so there is hope.  Lewis was recently insulted by Kaepernick fans after he explained that Colin’s girlfriend ruined his chance to be signed by the Ravens.
