This season, NFL viewership ratings are down. According to Sports Illustrated, the ratings drop is because people have stopped watching the games because Colin Kaepernick and other players are sitting for the National Anthem.
On a conference call with Miami Dolphins reporters, Colin addressed SI’s analysis and offered the following response:
“They’re not watching football because of my stance about fighting systematic oppression and wanting the same equality and freedom for all people? I would say they probably need to look in the mirror at what they value. You know, if they’re OK with people being treated unfairly, being abused, being harassed, being terrorized, then the problem is more with what they’re doing in their lives than it is about watching football games.”
We still can’t get over the fact that even after causing all of this commotion — Kaepernick didn’t vote.
