People forget, the NFL protests started in our movement too...
The NFL boycott like Ferguson was hijacked. It didn't start with Kaep. It started with the St.Louis Rams. They not only did 'Hands Up Don't Shoot', they refused to stay in St. Louis. The promise of a new $2 billion dollar stadium did not move them. The whole team picked up and left.
The NFL was quick to jump out in front of this... this was waaaaaay bigger than taking a knee. Enter Kaep. Then Deray. Deflect to veterans and the flag. Now the protests are a war of words, tweets and kneeling.
Which do you think the NFL would rather have?
