We’re in the Middle of Civil War ll — NFL owners and Roger Goodell Don't Get It

In response to the debate around standing or kneeling during the national anthem, NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer.

 

Roger Goodell is missing the point. Kneeling during the anthem honors the flag and its intention by raising issues that must be resolved to make our country greater.

 

This dispute has even reached the White House, and it’s no surprise where Trump stands. What is strange is his recent comment that he’s open to suggestions from athletes on who he should pardon next. We see through this. We know it’s merely an attempt to blackmail NFL athletes into standing down on police brutality. But we’re not taking the carrot. We’re taking a knee. Colin Kaepernick took a knee for black men who were lynched by gunshot with no consequences for the executioners. That still matters.

 

At the urging of reality TV personality Kim Kardashian West, Trump recently pardoned Alice Marie Johnson, a grandmother who’d served 21 years of a life sentence for a non-violent drug conviction. While this is wonderful, there are currently over 500,000 men and women in prison for non-violent drug convictions and another 500,000 rotting away in county jails because they can't afford bail.

On top of this, the Innocence Project estimates that between 2.3 percent and 5 percent of all US prisoners are innocent. With the American prison population at about 2.4 million, this means as many as 120,000 innocent people could be in prison right now.

 

This is unacceptable. Justice should not be treated like a lottery. And pardons are not the same as reform.

 

No NFL player should entertain Trump’s request to sell out their soul in exchange for the release of a few unjustly imprisoned people. Instead we much wage war to free the imprisoned and eradicate the for-profit prison pipeline, just like our ancestors had to fight to free the slaves.

 

Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Abraham Lincoln and millions of African slaves and union soldiers all gave their lives so that Americans could to take a knee. Their spirits have been waiting for the day the Confederacy is truly eradicated as it is the root cause of America’s generational race issues. But the NFL’s decision shows that we’re not there yet. So the BnB Liberation Movement is kicking off Civil War II—Cyber Edition.

We are declaring war on those whose economic privilege is deeply rooted in and build upon generational slavery and who make no effort to extend that privilege to those to whom it's owed. The thirteen original slave-holding confederate states must atone for their treason and sins against humanity (cities with Democratic mayors are exempted).
 

When we are victorious, we’ll fund removal of every confederate statue and flag on federal or public lands. We’ll rename all streets and schools named after confederate soldiers and ensure textbooks have accurate information on slavery. In short, we’ll mirror what Germany did to eradicate Nazi history. There will be no compromising on ending the legacy of the Confederacy.  

 

We will not allow Republicans voters to hide behind their elected officials without inflicting pain on their economy. We will not continue to let Trump, Roger Goodell, Jerry Jones and the owners of the NFL to continue to blacklist Colin Kaepernick and terrorize our athletes with the threat of being benched or fired. Our athletes are not pawns to be used in political warfare. They are taking a knee for injustices and need assurance that American society is 100% behind them. So, we are boycotting them and the NFL, redirecting their clients to places that support progressive causes.

 

To the NFL players out there, Kanye West was wrong when he said slavery was a choice. But today you do have a choice. If you don’t support Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid and you let Trump and his racist base win, you’ll be seating yourself in the back of the NFL's bus, while they make billions off your talent and drive.

 

We launched our movement on Father’s Day because the mothers are already organized and marching. And now we need our men to stand up against tyranny, Trump and racists NFL owners who believe that players belong to them. Your actions today will either keep Colin Kaepernick  in street clothes or ensure that he suit up to throw another touchdown. What you do will either perpetuate apathy or embolden a new generation of freedom fighters.

With social media, we can bypass governmental bureaucracy. Democrats and progressives let's show Roger Goodell and Jerry Jones that in 2018, any NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL or WNBA player can—and should—take a knee in protest of police brutality, particularly against unarmed people of color in America.

 

In 2018, pain is a two-way street. Our #FeelThePain travel boycott is designed to block tourism to Red States, cripple their trillion-dollar tourism industry, redirect that money into progressive places, boost our shared economy and unite Democrats and the world against oppression. This boycott will give us—the people—leverage over the outcome. And leverage over the alt right. We'll start the boycott against the true enemy of progress and racial harmony the sons and daughters of the Confederacy and then continue with the NFL when their season starts.

 

We can no longer wait years for government to step in. It took the entire world to stop the Holocaust and South African Apartheid.  And now we need that global help again. You can make a difference today. We ask each of you not to visit or support the places that oppress us, both as an act of solidarity and for your own safety, which we fear could be in jeopardy if you visit the heart of Trump’s America.

 

Red states (and the NFL) clearly do not desire our continued economic support and tourism dollars. So, let’s not give it to them. This movement is growing. When California ends all official travel to the confederate states, others will follow. When New York ends all official travel, even more will follow.

America and citizens of the world, this is our generation’s Montgomery Bus Boycott and South African Apartheid Embargo.

 

We will be the generation to eradicate the Confederacy, dismantle the slavery economy era and unshackle millions of Americans by legalizing cannabis, embracing the shared economy era, making our gun laws make sense and guaranteeing universal basic income and healthcare for all Americans.  


Special message to NFL players:

You played football all your life not only because you love the game but for the financial rewards. But many of you are also suffering. According to the NFL Players Association the average career length is just 3.3 years and a new study reveals that 96 percent of former NFL players show brain damage.

 

Cannabis has been shown to increase blood flow to damaged areas of the brain and can help keep tissue healthier by improving circulation. However, despite all the proven medicinal benefits of cannabis, it’s still a banned substance federally. The true reality is that you are taking all the risks for a short career and a lifetime of headaches and more serious medical conditions. Colin Kaepernick took a knee for the oppressed. Consider also taking a knee for your health. Don't make the impending boycott only about police brutality or NFL owners blackballing Colin and Eric Reid—make it about making the game safer, taking cannabis off the prohibited list, hiring more black executives and coaches and mirroring the NBA’s revenue-sharing model.

 

Currently, Airbnb is valued at $30 billion. We are launching Afrobnb and family to not only get into a very lucrative industry, but to ensure that black destinations worldwide aren’t recolonized by the tourism industry. We’re also launching the Travel in Peace Political Partyto ensure we have a seat at the table when policies are being made. We reimagined Marcus Garvey's vision using today's technology. We welcome all NFL players to join our team, because in 2018, pain is a two-way street.  

Special Message to NFL Owners:

We applaud you for putting your new anthem policy on hold.

 

Of course, the racist and treasonous Trump tweeted the following:

 

“The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love...Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!.”

NFL owners, the tremendous amount of backlash you received from the press and public is nothing compared to the resistance movement that’s brewing. We realize that reality gets distorted from your ivory towers, but make no mistake, America is a powder keg ready for a full-blown Civil War. Don’t become collateral damage in a cultural war that you didn’t start.

 

Either respect the players’ right to protest police brutality peacefully by mothballing your new anthem policy or we will consider it an act of war that puts you on the side of the descendants of our ancestors’ slave masters. We are 45 million strong in America and your actions will be the rallying call to unite the 1.2 billion members of the Pan-African diaspora and our allies. We have NFLFeelThePainBoy.com and #NFLFeelThePainBoy at the ready, waiting for your next action.

NFL owners, if you continue to pacify Trump’s racist agenda, you’ll be igniting the match that sets off our generation's cultural war. We dare you! In 2019, pain is a two-way street.

Lawyer: Trump comments kept NFL team from signing Colin Kaepernick

Steve Gardner, USA TODAY SportsPublished 10:26 p.m. ET May 30, 2018 | Updated 2:51 a.m. ET May 31, 2018

An NFL owner decided not to offer free agent Colin Kaepernick a contract after President Trump called for firing players who knelt during the national anthem. 

Kaepernick's attorney said the unnamed owner made the comments while under oath during a deposition in the collusion grievance the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback filed against the league.

Brandon Weeden was all the proof Colin Kaepernick needed.

According to a Pro Football Talk report, Kaepernick decided to charge the NFL with collusion after the Titans signed Weeden two weeks ago. Kaepernick filed a grievance against the league arguing that the NFL, at the behest of President Trump, had conspired to keep him out of the league after he became the face of the players’ national anthem protests

The Awakening of Colin Kaepernick

In college, Kaepernick began a journey that led him to his position
as one of the most prominent, if divisive, social activists in sports.

By JOHN BRANCH SEPT. 7, 2017

The standout college quarterback went to the meeting alone that winter night, looking to join. The fraternity brothers at Kappa Alpha Psi, a predominantly black fraternity with a small chapter at the University of Nevada, knew who he was. He was a tall, lean, biracial junior, less than a year from graduating with a business degree.

 

“When he came and said he had interest in joining the fraternity, I kind of looked at him like, ‘Yeah, O.K.,’” said Olumide Ogundimu, one of the members. “I didn’t take it seriously. I thought: ‘You’re the star quarterback. What are you still missing that you’re looking for membership into our fraternity?’”

 

His name was Colin Kaepernick, and what he was looking for, Ogundimu and others discovered, was a deeper connection to his own roots and a broader understanding of the lives of others.

No Country for Colin Kaepernick

It’s very possible that the activist-athlete will never take another snap in the NFL.

A year ago, Colin Kaepernick—as an injured San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback during an exhibition game—began his practice of sitting during the pregame rendition of the national anthem. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he said of his protest. Through the season, even as he regained the starting gig for 11 games, Kaepernick continued his demonstration. 

Colin Kaepernick Is Not Supposed To Be Unemployed

As Colin Kaepernick’s job hunt has crept into training camp, the parameters of debate have shifted. Just a few months ago, the contention was over whether or not Kaepernick was good enough to play in the league. That no longer seems to be the case. Last week, reports circulated that Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome were both interested in signing Kaepernick, but were met with resistance by owner Steve Bisciotti, who framed hesitance over signing Kaepernick as a PR concern.
