Fans Threaten To Boycott NFL If Colin Kaepernick Isn’t Signed

Fans supporting quarterback Colin Kaepernick are threatening to boycott the NFL if the former 49ers player doesn’t get signed.

A Change.org petition, entitled #NoKaepernickNoNFL, alleges that the NFL is blackballing the star quarterback because of his push for social justice.

“…NFL Owners are not willing to bring Kaepernick into their team because — according to many fans — he is a “distraction“. A man who protested because of injustices towards people of color is pretty much blackballed in a league that is 70% Black,” states the petition, started by news platform Unstripped Voice.

The petition continues, “We understand [the] NFL is very important to you — we also understand the purpose of Colin Kaepernick’s protest is FAR more important than any games you’ll ever watch. Simply put, if things stay the same for the way America — where ‘all men are created equal’ — treats people of color, then your loved ones, friends, and children will eventually be affected as well.”
