NY Daily News' King Protests Kaepernick Jobless Status by Boycotting NFL 'Bigots'

Written by  Jay Maxson

How bad is media bias on the subject of Colin Kaepernick? It's so bad that a newspaper writer is now boycotting the NFL because the controversial quarterback doesn't have a job. It's just another day in the life of New York Daily News senior justice writer and Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King.

King is a diehard football fan and NFL season pass customer who has until now "religiously" watched every single game. "It's an escape for me," he wrote on Tuesday. "Day in and day out, as I fight against injustice, watching a great game allows me to decompress from the stress of the cases I'm working on or writing about." He'll need to find a new outlet for his stress this year, all because Kaepernick offended millions of veterans, police officers and patriots by refusing to stand for the national anthem last season.

But I won't be watching the NFL this year. I can't, in good conscience, support this league, with many of its pro-Trump owners, as it blacklists my friend and brother Colin Kaepernick for taking a silent, peaceful stance against injustice and police brutality in America. It's disgusting and has absolutely nothing to do with football and everything to do with penalizing a brilliant young man for the principled stance he took last season.

Wow, how does he have a credibility? this guy is the Male Rachel Dolezal, he's White and trying to play it off like he's a black guy. NFL owners, mostly want to win, and that means having quality players, with the different ways players make fools out of themselves, I doubt NFL execs would single out Kaepernick.

Gee, actions have consequences. Go figure. I wonder if the NFL is watching their audience/receipts? Perhaps the
principled stance didn't sit well with the OTHER 300 or so million Americans. Now this second rate quarterback can devote his full time to protesting or perhaps, like so many of the Left he would like to explore his options in Canada.

he dose not have a job cuz he did what he did and that's that ! no one wants him on there team the fans do not want him on there teams and that's that ! this is a man that had every thing given to him with a silver spoon and he treats us like that ! and as far as this reporter goes may be he should stop with the cry baby shit grow up and see it for what it is ! football is a business and if a player makes it so the team can not make money then you let them go ! fans are what it is all about and if they don't go to the games or watch it on TV the spencer's will pull out

Daily news king is nothing more then a political and racial bigot trying to jump on the "blame the white guy" theme. If he truly wanted to take a stand against racism then he would have spoken out against the hate groups like BLM, Nation of Islam as well as the new black panthers. But again he just a racial and Political bigot whos playing to the leftist nut jobs.

He was disrespectful as an athlete to thousands of people and young children. There are hundreds of young athletes that would love to play in the NFL and thru Colin's action and in-action on the playing field he has now allowed one of those rising stars to play NFL. It is time Colin retired anyway. He is the only person that made that decision that affected his job status. DO NOT BLAME OTHERS FOR HIS POOR PERFORMANCE ON THE FIELD !!

Its one less embarrassing player off the field bad enough these players are not even good players and getting stupid salaries. If kapernick had heart for the game be wouldn't have that stupid stunt. And who is this asshole kingpin thinks he is. Take your fake American piece of crap and move out of here.
