The NFL this season has proven to be an ongoing battle after President Donald Trump fired shots against NFL players for taking a knee in peaceful protest against police brutality.

Colin Kaepernick started the protest last year when he took a knee during a San Fransisco 49ers game. For that Kaepernick was kicked off of his team and has been unable to get on any team in the NFL.

Celebrities like John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Zendaya, Jesse Williams and many others who came alongside Kaepernick in support of his protest.

ESPN host Jemele Hill is also received harsh treatment for her tweets calling the President a racist that resulted in an apology. but two weeks later Hill is suspended from her show for urging her followers via Twitter to boycott advertisers of the Dallas Cowboys. The reason being that owner Jerry Jones has ordered his players to stand during the National Anthem or they can face being benched.

With all that you wonder what else can be done to come against all of this injustice. Well, rapper Diddy believes the solution is to buy the NFL league.

It all starts with Diddy commenting “Facts” on a tweet by Keith Boykin’s explaining that 70% of the NFL consist of Black players.

 

Soon after Diddy tweets about having a dream to own an NFL league but now wanting to own one saying, “A league where you can be yourself. Have a retirement plan.”

He finally ends with this:

If Diddy bought the NFL league, what would that look like? Would there be change? Comment down below.

    I think it should be a conglomerate effort. We have enough black multi-millionaires and one or two billionaires to make a difference. And we got some support from white millionaires (hopefully none who are sexual predators) who are like-minded, I think this is a marvelous idea. I doubt if they could actually buy the NFL but create a league of our own. I would love to see that happen.
    SN: Now I hope in their endeavor, there are no bones in the closets, we all know what happened to Bill C when he wanted to buy a network. in the words of Treach from NBN “we can throw those skeleton bones in that closet doe.” We don’t want those bones to come falling out before they get to the finish line.

    What an absolute joke. You people don’t live in reality, do you? Over 90% of NFL revenue comes from corporate sponsors and TV contracts. Who owns those corporations and media outlets? Yup, white people. C’mon man!

      Black folks keep these “sponsors” in business. Although we are a small percentage of the population, we are the largest consumer group and we purchase any and every thing that sells. (That’s not necessarily a good thing, but it is what it is). Getting sponsorships is a small thing, they will get onboard when they see the $$ they could make, trust that. The only color the mass majority sees is green.

  4. I say kneel anyway. Let us see how successful these slave owners are when all blk players take a knee. I hope they call his bluff.

    I say, Do it!!!!!! Players should not be held hostage by the “slave master for a paycheck”. I would call the NFL’s bluff or whoever and kneel. #45asswipe talking about fans should boycott the NFL, how about the black and brown players boycott the NFL. Let’s see how much money is lost this season when they lose games this season. Drastic times call for drastic measures.
