According to his supporters, unemployed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed not just because of his taking of a knee during the national anthem, but because he was doing to protest racial inequality. And they believe the reason he hasn’t been signed by an NFL team as of yet is that the league is racist. In truth, Colin Kaepernick’s difficulty in finding a new job stems from the fact that last season he demonstrated a disrespect for America, the league, Fans, and the TV networks.
Keep in mind that he wasn’t fired from the 49ers, Kaepernick opted out of his 49ers contract in March and became a free agent. And because he hasn’t been signed by any other team movie director and activist Spike Lee is promoting a “United We Stand” rally at NFL headquarters in New York in support of quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
