Colin Kaepernick gets a payday from the NFL and branded as a Sellout by a Star Quarterback.
First, here’s what we know about the payday.
The NFL and lawyers for players Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid jointly announced Friday that they had settled a complaint of collusion by the players, who claimed football team owners blackballed them because they had protested racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the playing of the national anthem before games.
Terms of the settlement, which could include monetary payments to Kaepernick and Reid, were confidential.
Before the deal was reached, Kaepernick’s and Reid’s complaint alleging violations of the league’s collective bargaining agreement was headed to a full hearing before an arbitrator later this month.
Not everyone was celebrating his victory.
He’s straight up calling Kaepernick a fraud, hijacking the civil rights movement.
“If your backdrop is going to be the African American civil rights presence that it brought from the ’60s and you’re going to use that for your own causes, you don’t sell out. ”
He added, “You don’t turn your message into a Nike hoodie.”
Johnson says Kaepernick KNEW he had the NFL on the ropes but he “gave them a way out.”
“Now I don’t know what activist … Martin Luther King or Malcolm X … I don’t know what civil rights leader that you even saw or follow that made you even think that selling out to your oppressor or signing a deal with your oppressor was the way to go.”
Even when he wins, he loses.
