Jay-Z’s recent partnership with the NFL has sparked a big conversation surrounding Colin Kaepernick, the protests of the NFL, and kneeling during games.
Over the years, J. Cole has stood by Kaepernick as he was blackballed by the NFL following his decision to kneel for the National Anthem.
Yesterday (Aug 14), was also the three year anniversary of the first time attention was brought to then San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick during a pre-season game.
Following a post by Kaepernick highlighting criminal reform since that day, J. Cole had a message to the NFL that many of us continue to echo today. He should be playing on a professional football team today.
“Thank you @Kaepernick7 we ain’t forgot,” he wrote. “@nfl let the man work.”
