Shaun King, Black Lives Matter activist, and writer has called for a boycott of the NFL until such time as Colin Kaepernick is awarded a contract. In what universe does King think that this is a smart move? Surely he must know that there is already a boycott in place by viewers BECAUSE of Kaepernick’s antics on the field!
Consider that if NFL gave in and hired anyone, no matter how bad or unpopular because of pressure from activists? It would be the end of sports as a competitive event. Soon there would be calls for racial and gender equality (although that might work out bad for BLM).
The fact that they think they have this power is ridiculous. There are far more people in America who love their country and their flag than there are who support the hatred and division of groups like BLM. Just because one gets all the media attention, does not make it the majority.
But of course, the MSM will support them in this. And the NFL will ignore them. And the only thing that suffers will be the game itself. Viewing figures are already dropping sharply due to the over-politicization of the sport…This would be the death knell.
Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King is trying to get people to boycott the NFL until Colin Kaepernick is signed by a team. It’s ironic because lots of longtime football fans are already boycotting the NFL because of Colin Kaepernick.

Shaun King Demands Boycott of the NFL Until Colin Kaepernick gets Signed…
Happy Game Day! Football season is upon us, people. Fantasy lineups are being tweaked, beer is being bought, and wings are getting fried. Sounds like a party. But, every party has its pooper, and that pooper is everyone’s favorite non-black guy, Shaun King. Shaun is sore over Colin Kaepernick not having a team, so he’s calling for a boycott of the NFL until Kaepernick gets signed.
So, I’m asking you to join me in boycotting the NFL this year. We will end our boycott when Colin Kaepernick is signed to an NFL roster. It’s that simple. Listen, we have power,” King wrote. “Our money has power. Our viewership has power. Our buying power can sway what companies do or don’t support. But we have to unify and make this power mean something.
These white team owners cannot believe that Colin took a stance against injustice in America without their expressed permission and blessing.
Is there anything that the left isn’t currently protesting?
