Colin Kaepernick risked his career to stand up against police brutality, particularly against black people and other people of color. He protested peacefully by taking a knee during the national anthem to stand up for our rights. Because he took that stand for us, a stand for equality, for equal protection for all under the law, for equal justice, he has been blackballed by NFL ownership and management. This is an undeniable fact. In only 6 seasons in the league, he has already led his team to a Super Bowl. Last year, coming off of shoulder surgery, he threw 16 TD's and only 4 interceptions and was voted the Most Inspirational and Courageous player on his team by his teammates.
League ownership and management is attempting to silence him and any other player who thinks about duplicating his protest in the future. They're sending a message to him and all of us, a larger segment of their fan base than they realize, who supported not only his right to protest but also the cause he champions. Well, it's time for us to send a message back to NFL ownership and management. We have a voice and that voice is our collective purchasing power. Sign this petition to pledge that if Colin Kaepernick remains unsigned heading into pre-season camp, you will boycott the NFL. That boycott will include not watching any NFL games or programming on TV. It will include not purchasing the Sunday Ticket on DIRECTV, the Red zone package on any platform and the NFL Mobile packages. And it will include not purchasing NFL merchandise or game tickets. NFL ownership is sending us a message. Sign this petition to send one right back to them.
