Last month, we reported that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick turned on America when he refused to stand as the national anthem played before a game.
Kaepernick tried to defend his shameful show of disrespect by race-baiting.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he said of his protest. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Now, these race-baiting protests have come back to bite the NFL in a big way.
The Gateway Pundit reported that a new poll by Rasmussen found that one in three Americans are boycotting the NFL due to the fact that they are refusing to punish their players for disrespecting the military, police and US flag. 32% of Americans said they are less likely to watch football games because of the increasing number of Black Lives Matter protests by players on the field.
Meanwhile, only 13% said they are more likely to watch the games because of the protests, and 52% said the protests will have no impact on their decision to watch NFL games. Whites are twice as likely as blacks to say they are less likely to watch NFL games because of the protests, with 36% of caucasians saying this compared to only 18% of blacks.

If the NFL wants people to start watching again, they need to make it clear that this race-baiting behavior will NOT be tolerated. SHARE this story if you think Colin Kaepernick should be BANNED from the NFL!
