NFL Season 2: #WhyWeKneel

    Shares

This is the 2nd season Colin Kaepernick has been banned from the NFL since taking his knee and protesting police brutality in the United States.

Last season we called for a #NoKaepernickNoNFL ban.

This season — to put the “distorted” message back on track — we say #WhyWeKneel.

WE PARTNERED UP WITH THE LAWYERS COMMITTEE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER LAW, which produced 11 graphics you can share on social media, email, etc. that shows FACTS on why we ALL took a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick. If you don’t understand this, then picture if this was your son, daughter, brother, sister, parent, guardian, or any of your loved ones. Will it make sense then?

PLEASE SHARE THESE USING THE HASHTAG #WhyWeKneel DURING WEEK 1 OF THIS NFL SEASON. Here’s the schedule:

  • Thursday (today), 9/6 – 8:00 pm
  • Sunday 9/9 – 1:00 pm (early games), 4:25 pm (afternoon games), 8:20 pm (night game)
  • Monday 9/10 – 7:10 pm (early Monday Night Football), 10:15 pm (late Monday Night Football)

You can save any of graphics below as well and use #WhyWeKneel when you post them online.

These comments from Mark and Tara – those can’t be real right?
Who thinks like that and then actually puts it down as the written word – on this site no less.
I find it regrettable that the NFL has some how attracted this sort of ‘fan’.
It’s football people – nothing else. I love it. This is a shame to the sport. Football is not about patriotism – it’s about football. Celebrities and prominent sports figures use their notoriety to champion causes all the time. Colin Karpernick is no different.
It’s American to practice free speech.
Mark and Tara are practicing it here.
It’s truly American. Some of this speech is ugly (Mark and Tara) and some is righteous and courageous (Karpernick). None of it is ‘’Un- American’

lol, I enjoy the comments from American Autocrats, inc.

American Autocrats, helping a representative democracy embrace nationalist authoritarianism one day at a time.

Kaepernick is a total piece
of shit.
And who cares what the prison population is comprised of.
Prison is for losers. Little Colin should be sent there for reconditioning.
This is America.
If the lil’ monkey doesn’t like it, tell him to leave.
Our country would be better off without scum like it.
Forward this note to him. He’ll probably go crawl behind his mommy’s skirt.

Totally agree.
What’s happening with this country when sniveling little cowards can shun the flag and there are actually other uneducated scum that support it.
