The NFL has entered into a longterm partnership with Jay-Z and Roc Nation, and Jay-Z's fans are furious. Internet activist Shaun King threw subtle shade at Jay-Z on Wednesday for teaming up with the NFL after he threatened to boycott the NFL for blacklisting Colin Kaepernick.

"They made him an offer" is just King's shady way of saying Jay-Z can be easily bought by corporate bigwigs if the price is right.

Jay and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell held a press conference at Roc Nation’s New York offices on Wednesday to discuss the new deal. The rap mogul suggested his critics were misguided.

"I think that we forget that Colin's whole thing was to bring attention to social injustice so in that case this is a success — this is the next thing," he told reporters. "There's two parts of protest: the protest, and then there's a company or individual saying ‘I hear you, what do we do next?’ For me it's about actionable items, what are we gonna do about it? We get stuck on Colin not having a job, you know what I’m saying? And this is more than that."

Jay-Z said he still supports Kaepernick, but there is money to be made.

"I support any protest that's effective," he said. "I'm into action, I'm into real work — I'm not into how it looks from the outside. If protesting on the field is the most effective way, then protest on the field. But if you have a vehicle that can inspire change and speak to the masses at the same time, it's hard to steal the narrative away."

Asked by reporters if Kaepernick has been blackballed from the NFL, Goodell said that “any team” can sign him.

Jay-Z blinked rapidly when a reporter asked him, "I'm sorry to put it this way, but if the National Anthem were playing, would you kneel or stand?"

"I think we're past kneeling. I think it's time for action," the rapper responded.

    Don't ever forget his origins. HE WAS A F*CKIN' CRACK DEALER.
    For those too young to have known or for those who have forgotten, crack dealers wreaked havoc on black neighborhoods and made them ripe for the regentrification (read displacement of black folk) so that rick white real estate moguls could make money.
    Jay-Z has been sellin' out black folk from day one. Remember, it was he who ratted out Gotti and the others who wanted to distribute their own music.

    But the dumb azz beehive still gonna suck up

    Hmm, I am so glad that this Kap situation happened, I will never pledge my allegiance to anything but the MOST HIGH, so I thank you Kap for bringing this to my attention...

    The kneeling was dumb and had zero impact on anything. It did nothing for the plight of black people or black men. Kapernick would take a job in the nfl tomorrow. The “movement” had no purpose or direction. I really wish people would move on from it.

    His deal is bigger than Kaepernick it is good for “him “and “his “Company.. He gets to help choose the acts for the Super Bowl right and he has some sort of management situation. Thats all Business his wife performed like 2x . Sooo Y'all was thinking what?????? lol They didn't support the NFL? ?
    Entertainment industry is for profit those people don't care about American Urban communities besides using them and exploiting them and giving them nothing... How many times do people have to tell y'all to stop celebrating all those individual accomplishment that don't mean nothing for everyone else. LOL when they said Social Justice blah blah blah blah. Its just a cute marketing term. We don't see any black people working. Thats why I respect the Asian business man if you go to his company you will see people who look like him the majority of his workers. They don’t even let others in.

  • Jai

    Either Jay-Z get the money or someone else will. If NFL offered me a deal I dont care what Shaun, Colin or Amy got to say I'm getting my check just like everyone else involved with them.

  • SJ

    He’s under the impression that if he rubs shoulders with white men, then he’s one OF those white men...

    Jay z seems to be big on acquiring white validation and using his “acceptance” into some white circles as a bragging right against the Black community.

  • Fire & Ice

    Sean Carter, Sean Combs and the rest, are only as woke as the next business deal. Jay used the Colin situation to further Jay's best interest.These people can't relate to black anything anymore.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    This is extremely problematic and embarrassing. Just say its about the money and keep it moving. Don't insult my intelligence and try to convince me this is some sort of protest.

    The reality is that the NFL conspired and subsequently blackballed Colin for expressing his First Amendment rights. The NFL never rectified that situation. I don't understand how anyone can not see the blatant hypocrisy in Jay Z's actions.It would be different if Jay Z and the NFL released an actual plan to address the original issue and further detail their plan for dealing with the covert racism within the organization. That would indicate there were actual "actionable items".

    Instead, the NFL chose someone that is largely respected by blacks, both professionally and for the work he has done with BLM and other social issues, to partner with in an attempt to increase viewership and fan participation and eliminate claims of racism. This benefits the NFL far more than it will ever benefit Jay Z or any other black person.

  • Fire & Ice

    Those of you saying if he didn't someone else would have......is exactly why black people collectively aren't considered a threat! Trust if this was an issue relating to the Jewish community...NO major Jewish figure would have done this. All we continue to do is prove that we are up for sale at any cost.

  • Fire & Ice

    Come on with those facts ?

  • Fire & Ice

    That's scary

  • Scromes1212

    The NFL bought Malcolm Jenkins and the rest of that group they put together. Then they bought Kap and his silence. Then they bought Jay smh and all of them got some silly excuse why they took the money. Clowns not even associating with each other anymore. Malcolm and Eric reed All on tv fighting with each other now Kap and Jay on two different pages and Kap can't even speak on it cause of the NDA they had him sign smh Just straight clown sh*t

  • DeeFromLA

    Jay-Z is Clearly about his money, but why didn't anyone get upset with Kaepernick when he took the settlement from the NFL earlier this year. He probably won't play anymore, does the boycott and kneeling continue?

  • DeeFromLA

    You do know Kap took the settlement right?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    As hes should. Two separate issues. He was wrongfully terminated and they interfered with his ability to get a contract with another team. He deserves every penny he got.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I agree?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I try not to be judgmental on here, but I haven't eaten.

    Some of y'all are slow.

    Kaep was kneeling because of the injustices occurring in America not the NFL.

    After he was fired, blacks (and others) started boycotting the NFL because the NFL fired him for kneeling.

    Two separate issues. Thus, Kaep received a settlement because he was fired. Jay Z publicly admonished people for performing for the NFL during the boycott of the NFL. Now, Jay Z has more than likely effectively ended the boycott by agreeing to perform or hire performers for however long his contract last.

  • 100milesperhour

    He's a poser w/the personality of a shoe. People covet his $ but don't see what lies beneath. In interviews, he talks in circles w/o saying sht. The people applauding him are the same ones he insults in his raps. Each song gets more arrogant.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I agree with him on the point of action after protest.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    They dont hear you. If offered a job, Kap would still be playing football.

  • Li-Wright

    Nothing wrong with being a capitalist (even Kap is a capitalist - on Nike's payroll). Why not a black capitalist? Also the NFL needs to keep adding audience. TV viewers are up, attendees are down.

  • Bushbabe

    I don't like Camel man but this should speak vol6 to black people. Be about your money and stop letting white liberals like Talcum King yank your chain. This white man has the audacity to speak on what a black man is doing to make ends but won't show you how to create wealth in your community. This is what these cave demons do. SECURE THE BAG CAMEL AND EFF A WHITE DEMON.

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    They are too caught up in their obsession with this camel and his pony to hear the truth of your words. Im dominican and theres a liquor store in my mamas neighborhood that no hispanic frequents. Even the neighborhood drunk wont buy his beer there. Supposedly back in rodney king riots days the store owner filed a false claim against some kids in the neighborhood and had some choice words for the mexicans and blacks living there. Its been almost 30 years since he saw a penny from the hispanic community i once heard that he told someone that as long as black people smoke and drink he could give a fawk less if the hispanic patronize him. He is still in business just based off the black dollar but we’re wetbags and n!ggers though...

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    Thank you

  • DeeFromLA

    I agree with you, I just saw the comment that it was never resolved and technically a settlement means the case is closed.

  • Gloria

    Say that shit!

  • bb1812

    Jay's a sellout & a puppet now. He knows no real meaningful & lasting changes will happen for the Black community. Yet bc he has given the blessing Blacks will watch games, halftimes. Ratings go up, the NFL wins & Jay collects checks. They're just using Jay but they cant do that without Jay's participation. A mess & a disappointment. JayZ & his white puppeteers; wonder how much he sold his soul for. "I can't believe we made it " -Apeshit/The Carters.

    Thank you! WE stay stuck in the fight and the majority of US don't know how to move past protest into effecting real change. White people know this about us and use it to their advantage keeping us sidetracked protesting the same shyt repetitively.

  • dontgetblocked

    I don't think they'll be having rap acts for their half time shows. The NFL audience will walk away at half time. Jay Z will turn as white as when he was hanging with Gwenyth Paltrow and her ex. Basically, the only color he sees is green.

    Kneeling is an action. I know that JayZ is an activist as well as a business man. So I'd like to see what initiatives he's able to launch with this deal.

  • abby500

    Skip Beyoncé.... seen enough of her

  • currvalicious

    That's why I believe some really too initiatives will come out of this. And it'll benefit the community.

  • abby500

    Here’s what I hear: Blacks are getting f’d over at an alarming rate. So whenever a black sees a chance to come-up....GRAB that come-up!! And maybe help a few blacks in the process.

  • currvalicious

    Exactly, that's how BLM movement got stuck. After all that protesting, & organizing protests, there was nothing to move the momentum forward. No game plan or iniatives beyong the protest. Now that movement has all but collapsed.

  • Jethro

    It is time for action, now let's see some. I'll save any judgment.

  • Renee26

    Let's see what the action is that Jay has in mind... He's speaking like he's gonna influence change while he's sitting at that table

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    This is the *Barneys Department Store situtation all over again*

    When you see Jays name and the term partnered, this is Public Relations Speak for lending his image for a price.

    Jay is Hip Hops version of Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson. You can put lip stick on a pig, its still a pig. So much for people who bought into the whole 40/40 album concept your money fattened Jays pockets.

    How many decades have Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson been in the headlines as "advocates for the community" while collecting checks and getting rich from corporations "partnering" with them to assist in damage control and race relations repair for their exposed racist ways.

    What impact have Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson made in our community in their decades of race relations service.....EXACTLY! Just like Jay, the only impact that will be made is in his bank account.

    Wow. I can't even stand to look at him. And to be honest, I was indifferent to him. The way his comments seemed to belittle Kap is just.... so, damn. So because he is booking the entertainment that is a success over Colin's kneel for injustice on the streets. Colin's kneel is worth more than whatever money Jay made for Blue Ivy's college fund.

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Perfecto!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Usually I would agree, but now since they are on bad terms, I don't think she will.

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    Rihanna would not. The rest can be manipulated.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    If this is really about change then donate every penny to social justice and police brutality charities or charities for black advancement. He ain’t hurting for money.

    He did the same shit with Barney’s and Even. Ragged about it despite Barney’s paying hundreds of thousands to settle discrimination lawsuits and claims.

    This guy has shown time and time again that he’s about him and what’s best for him.

    You mean to tell me that he couldn’t pick up the phone or text Kaep , nothing .

    I’m so confused , he didn’t feel the need to contact Kaep before his decision but felt compelled to contact Kaep 48 hours after the deal after backlash ? Ok sure

  • Rhyme and Reason

    People shouldn’t be surprised, Jay-Z didn’t give that much b4 aging as an artist, and said his life’s story [rise to fame] was charity (paraphrasing)!

    His partnership dissolve with Dash or being a former drug dealer tells his story!

    Power, money and influence is what matters to CAPITALISTS! Roger included he must diminish the importance of players kneeling, so he said so, but...

    He might be in for a surprise, if this doesn’t turn out overwhelmingly in his favor!

    Stay Tuned...

    This ain’t his first time . He did a deal with Barney’s after they were racially profiling customers and racist towards employees. He saw the boycotts and heard the noise but chose to sign with them anyways then tried to do damage control later by saying he didn’t want to rush to conclusions but if there was smoke then why sign at all . Instead read the facts before signing . He has contradicted himself time and time again.

    I won’t even speak on his recent raps being against gentrification in the hood , despite him being front and center of the nets construction gentrification of Brooklyn. That Nigga is an opportunist in the purest form .

    If a rapper signed with Cristal then he would be the first to call them a sellout. Snake shit

  • Rhyme and Reason

    He was brought in to handle Colin, “belittle” because Whites think of us as all the same, followers!

    Kaep is scary because of how well Nike did with him, being honored or featured by Time, by ESPN, and he has followers, players who support his stance. They know rich or not, they’re all -black men] prey!

But yet you call him 48 hours after the deal ?

    FOH with this snake shit. If he really for change then donate all of those millions to the right charities and not his charity but other charities against police brutality or wrongful doing to blacks

    I’m confused on what the issue is and so is everyone else. First it was police brutality, then it was kapernick being fired, then it morphed into wanting him to get his job back (in the same nfl that we’re saying is racist), then it became about nfl treatment of players. There is no clear message and no goal in sight.

  • Diva_woman

    The movement never had a clear message or goal. People want to boycott the nfl, while simultaneously wanting kapernick to be hired in the nfl. How does that make sense. Kapernick was leading people down a road to nowhere. Are we boycotting the nfl or wanting them to hire kap? Why should he play for them if they are racist. Do we want to boycott until they lose money and popularity which would cause all the other black players to lose money and jobs? The whole thing is ridiculous.

    Then short time later Neek found himself back in the same situation be retried again .. so I said hmmmmm. What did meek refuse to do to no make these charges go away permanently

  • bb1812

    Myself & it'd prob be a Destiny's Child reunion as I think on it.

  • Pebbles

    If you look back Jay Z will only be around you if you’re one or the other in your field.

    You either have money, you’re an influencer, and if your all three about your self ... that will get you to the next level with him

  • bb1812

    I actually agree.

    Thank you , will check it out.

    JAYZ is that nigga Alonzo from the movie Training Day, no cap. He the suit wearing version of that nigga Alonzo.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Yep he signed Rick Ross and was around him when he was hot, then when he got called out for being a cop and fell off, jayz was no where to be found. Then Ross got hot again and he re-appeared.

    He did the same with R.kelly, Jayz will stand next to anything that is hot and Drake is 2.0 version of Jay.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Chill , it was a joke, i actually saluted him or her and said well said and spot on.

    Facts , Facts

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Yeah its on entertainment tonIght website. He's trying to spin this shit, but Trav wasnt the only artist he told to skip the Halftime show. He also reached out to Rihanna. Sadly sheeple will eat up his piss poor excuses.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    He had Rih too, but looks like she got wiser, she started following Spotify, so shes probably leaving that Tidal bullshit behind soon.

    One of the only times JAYZ took a photo-op with J.cole was for Tidal press day.

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    I just said this about the stuff they say in these songs. Each song more and more flippant and arrogant

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    And yet the «jayz gun save us » black propaganda continues. Smfh

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    I wonder if he knew this deal was in the making and told Travis's team that he will get him more money later if he refuses to do halftime now.

  • Facts and Receipts

    Both sides have one. Him and NFL I think.

  • JENNYJONES1

    HELL THE NFL MADE KAP AN OFFER THAT HE TOOK AND THEN STFU ABOUT THE NFL AND THEIR OWNERS SO WHY CAN'T JAY Z? AND WHY THE HELL DOES JAY Z HAVE TO CHECK IN WITH KAP TO MAKE A DEAL WITH THE SAME PEOPLE KAP MADE A DEAL WITH........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Junkanoo

    Jay Z fits right in with those white devils in the NFL. I've never got a sense of genuine humanity from Jay Z he's a calculating snake in the grass with a massive ego. I've always thought of money as a tool one of our inventions we've been conditioned to think of as actually being real but its not. Capitalism needs to be replaced by a more evolved means to barter goods and services far too much wealth is concentrated in the hands of a small few enslaving the masses.

  • Solstice

    ??? Blocketh?!?! (snip- I need this for future use please). ???

  • T Willis

    A few things...
    The NFL protest was bullshit from the start (Kaep). The NFL is made up of predominately rich black athletes, so the protesting was only hurt the black NFL players - not the owners. Also, why black folks were protesting the NFL, so were racist yts. So both the “woke”, or conscious blacks, and the racist yts were protesting the NFL?! You couldn’t make this illogical bullshit up if you tried lmao! Why y’all standing (or kneeling) for this nonsense, black millionaires were losing money, and where exactly was this protest supposed to end? How were we supposed to benefit from kneeling? During the past couple of seasons, has Kaep made any progress or change in police departmental policy? Has the protest deterred any racists or cops from violence against blacks? The answer is: no. All this drama and hoopla, causing racial tensions in the NFL, and what do we have to show for it? Absolutely nothing. Racial tensions have only exploded since Kaep, and they’re getting worse. Our streets are still riddled with black and brown dead bodies while y’all up here crying about who is or who isn’t kneeling. This is all misdirection and propaganda. Kaep kneeling didn’t change anything. The only way we’re going to see change is by voting and creating changes in our community. Protesting only worked during the civil rights movement. We are passed that nonviolent bullshit. Capitalism should have shown us why boycotts and protests are no longer effective. The only thing these racist bastards understand is power and money. Not nonviolence and protests.

    We have too black millionaires in the NFL who use their money and their resources to help black communities. And I’ll be damn if I f*ck with their only means of livelihood for some bullshit protest that absolves nothing. I suggest every black person turn on the tv during the NFL season and support our BLACK players.

    As for Jay?... the only ppl shocked by Jay’s true nature are his deluded fans. I’ve known for years who & what Jay is about: himself. That asshole would never ever see a dime from me...

  • MsPam

    TJ Holmes said something stupid about the owners and Jay-Z. He said that the owners wanted street cred and Jay-Z is the one to give it to them. Someone needs to tell TJ Holmes that a fifty years old washed up rapper.

    Jay Z never took a knee to began with. him and Beyonce was having concerts at the NFL stadiums during the whole ordeal.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Lol he is back peddling all over the place, and yes I very much agree with your comment about not even contacting Colin.I mean Jay was wearing a Colin Jersey that he made sure he was photoed in. Jay is a slithering snake.

    Bottom line, though on *Jays end* this is just a business deal to secure half time slots for Roc Artist it has nothing to do with activism.Colins family has already called out Jay publicly for being a liar. It makes Jay a gate keeper for the Half time show.This deal wont last though, its all ready unraveling under media pressure.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

  • doriday

    Kaperniek is only thinking of himself. Jay Z was hired to do a job and that's it and he is getting paid for his services. When he gets paid it goes directly to his bank account. This is about money. That's it.

  • doriday

    Nipsey never paid any ones bills except his own. We are so silly. You paid his bills buying into it the publicity stunts

  • the guest

    The photos are insulting. Sometimes Jay Z, for all his drive, talent, and acumen, can be unbelievably ignorant and desperate. What a slap in the face to Kaep. There should be no deals with NFL until Kaep is hired. My god black folks these days don’t understand how this was a landmark employment discrimination case and everyone should ride it out until he is hired. It’s a protest of the racist white system of retaliatory blackballing against people of African Descent who protest racism.

  • doriday

    To hell with Kaperniek. Kaperniek is an aggravation to the black community. We keep putting him on a pedestal because of these darn publicity stunts. I hope they never hire him again.

    Mark Geragos and Colins family said Jay absolutely did NOT speak to Colin about this deal before hand. Jay and his camp said they did. They were caught in a lie.

    This whole deal with the NFL was poorly managed it brings to mind the Tidal launch. For this to be a win, and for Jay to look like an amazing business man and heroic social activist the (image he has been trying to market as of late) we should have seen pitures and video of Colin Capernick with the Jersey on of a new NFL team he just joined and Roger Goodell and Jay shaking his hand welcoming him back to the league. Bad form all around Jay.

    Remember guys what ever money Jay makes his bosses at Live Nation make even more.

  • Facts and Receipts

    Jay turned down the Super Bowl not to show solidarity for Colin. Bc he didnt like the talent selection process. He admitted this yesterday.

    "The music mogul revealed Wednesday that it was the selection process that turned him off from the 2018 show in Minneapolis, with Jay-Z implying he was offended about being an option rather than the only choice."

  • currvalicious

    I posted a couple times in support of Jay without doing any research. I shouldn't have. After doing so. I am not pleased w/this marriage btwn him & the NFL. He became besties w/Goodell thru Robert Kraft. Meeting Kraft during their support of Meek Mill. This all started over a year ago. So ROC Nation will help provide talent for the halftime show... Why? The NFL's been providing talent for the show since before he was born. ....then they'll be assisting w/social justice. Ok., Kap sacrificed his career basically for that very cause. Why not at least recruit him to be involved in that aspect??? Oh, b/c Kap hadn't even known Jay (one of his most vocal supporters) was even involved w/Goodell & the boys...so this is disheartening to say the least. The aesthetics isn't good.

  • Beloved Jordan

    Thank God Jay z thinks above the average person or he would still be at the back of the line like the majority of the black race. This is a power move we need inside people in to make changes just like Congress, Supreme Courts, Senate. Judges etc we need to be involved ..we need to be the ones creating the policies laws..why would black people complain about the racist NFL and then complain when someone who is from the hood someone who represents majority of the black players of the NFL . I mean black people are you just here for the look of trying to justice n equality or do you really want change.

    Was he given a seat on the NFL Executive Committee lol lol. This is an entertainment contract that *LIVE NATION* ATTONEYS APPROVED.

    The rest is all Public Relations Spin .

  • Beloved Jordan

    We all have to start from somewhere in this racist system..perhaps in the long run he will have a seat perhaps he's opening the doors for that to happen in the future. He has an inside connection to the players to influence them to demand change more $ better contracts. Nigga playing chess not checkers it's about the long game...black people still on that slow dumb shit then getting riled up by what a white man said about out brother man. Luckily Jay z understands the slow growth n mentality of our people n don't let that effect his moves..

    I totally disagree, this is no inside position. Jay is being used as an outside token.

    Tidals coporate HQ, has zero black employees, and even more zero Black Executives. He is not even interested in making progress in a company he holds owership in. This just isnt Jay, its not his genuine self, he is not an activist or advocate for social change.He doesnt care, it just business he cares about his financial gain.It been proven time and time again.

  • ALLMINE?

    Its Jay's job is to make millions too. U can't have all black players and be mad at jay for wanting a check too.?

  • currvalicious

    Who (athlete) doesn't have a contract w/Nike...good thing Kap does have that contract, he has to make a living somehow. I'm not 'hating on' Jay; this just doesn't settle right. He has to explain more succinctly what this deal is actually about. Who will benefit (besides himself & his). How's this deal holding the NFL accountable? Does this deal undermine Kap & the awareness he's brought forth this far? Just so many questions.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    In truth its disappointment NOT hate. Our people have a desire for Black leadership, Malcom, Martin, Marcus Garvey. There is a pain, a hurt in the community - we hunger for inspiration, for change. Tupacs song better days comes to mind.

    Nike "supporting" the Repub party is partly false.

    "What's True
    Individuals who listed their employer as Nike did contribute vastly more to Republicans than to Democrats during the 2018 federal election cycle.

    What's False
    Those contributions were not made by Nike itself as a company and were dominated by donations from Nike's billionaire co-founder Phil Knight, who is no longer actually an employee. Nike's political action committee donated fairly evenly to both Democratic and Republican candidates during the same period."

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    CTG asked Goddell numerous times if a team would be able to sign Kapernick to a deal in which Goddell pivoted the question...After about the 3rd time Goddell said "sure" in the most non-chalant way...I do think that Jay-Z is a sambo for this deal...For you less than a year ago to tell Travis Scott not to do the Superbowl then turn around and shake hands with the NFL commissioner then deal with him goes to show he's a capitalist...This is just like back in the 80's when they would pay Trump to put his name on hotels and he aint have to do anything but stay in the penthouse's...its a slap in the face too those who thought he stood for something...Oh and the lie about getting Kap's permission is a mess...Oh and Kap did settle with the NFL for an undisclosed sum that he earned because the NFL hindered his would have been long standing career and lucrative deals...JayZ is disappointing as hell...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Umm...an entertainment deal is not something that promotes change...jay-z is in charge of the budget to lights and cameras and talent...what the hell does that have to do with being powerful??? Jay Z and his team are nothing but glorified stage hands for the NFL...they aren't in charge of marketing or accounting or even diversity issues...he isn't a spokesperson for disorderly conduct or racism lawsuits against the organization...this is not progression this is a pacifier...there is no power in bulb lights and streamers for a damn half-time show...

    Comes to find out he didnt tell Trav not to the do the Super Bowl in re to any social justice.He admitted that last night too. He told Trav to not do it bc he would have been playing second fiddle to Maroon 5...the headliners. Said with the year Travis had off the Sicko Mode album, he had no biz performing on a stage with an M on it. As if it should have a T on it? Like we talkin about TRAVIS FREAKING SCOTT. He is not nor will EVER be headliner worthy to ME, but I digress.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Why didn't Jay-Z suggest that they partner up with Kapernick or why didn't Jay-Z just bring Kapernick with hiim?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    He took the settlement because an organization locked him out of working a job he was phenomenal at...Kap would have have hundreds of millions of dollars with shoe and clothing deals alone...the NFL hindered his progress so he had a right to sue them...thats like your job firing you for wearing red and your supposed to just sit at home and take it??? NO your gonna sue because you had a right to make money off of a job that decided your wore something they didn't like and let you go then that "job" reaches out to their branches at different locations saying you cant be hired at any of them even if there's an opening in Alaska location...your gonna sue and atleast get your wages for the year back...

    Jay Z you never kneeled you was doiing business with the NFL then with you and Beyonces concerts. You just was playing these ppl, I know but Im glad you telling them to they face. Sadly some of them still dont get it.

    Now let me tell you something, the NFL is not going to let you run shyt. Thats why you keep getting screwed over. Re read your contract and read it carefully, you might of just played yourself. They know how to break that contract when they ready. So be careful.

  • the guest

    No. I’d rather Jay Z be up there without selling out Kaep who initiated this equality revolution in the NFL that Jay Z is capitalize on.

  • EasyBreezy

    Great question! I support JayZ with cautious optimism. He has a year to show and prove he is going beyond the Kap crisis with ACTION THAT ADVANCES THE RESULTS KAP WANTED. Absent that, JayZ is just a "business, man."

    "Jay-Z said he still supports Kaepernick, but there is money to be made."

    Shamefully, this is what it's all about. I wish we could trust Jay-Z to be something other than self-interested. But this is a man who sold drugs to other black people. He ruined lives before so it's reasonable to assume he just sees another opportunity to make money. I hope to be proven wrong.

  • grenadiadrian

    Ever since his interview in Miami when he was still QB for the 49ers, his reps have kept a muzzle on him because they know he's prone to stick his foot in his mouth (A few years ago, his IG post for Houston right after they had massive floods). Chances are if he's "interviewed," it'll be Nessa or "a source close to Kaepernick" doing the talking.

  • Evillene

    He's making money under the guise of being a change agent. He has other avenues to make money. No one begrudges an athlete making a living and pursuing his vocation. Jay-Z is a rapper -- I guess -- so his black @ss should be rapping instead of pretending.

    Jay Z did the Kalief Browder story, the movie 13, his previous album was about black empowerment, he got Meek Mil at job not mention several schloarships he has provided for under priviliged youth.

    again check your facts, he has done the Kalief Browder story speaking about the injustice system, Free Meek Mill, sent underprivliged kids to school and whole previous album was dedicated to educating black people on power moves in this white ran system.

  • Reina1718

    How he sold out Kaep? Lol he took an “undisclosed” amount of money & STILL wants to br in the NFL??

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    "Absent that, JayZ is just a "business, man."" This is true and he has to show and prove. We will see what happens.

  • kboogie

    U hit the nail on the head..... ????

  • ALLMINE?

    He should be making money. That's wtf he should be doing.

  • Mrs. Davis804

    So in essence, we did what we think black men shouldn't have? The comment referenced section 8, foodstamps, etc. Weren't our men still subjugated to WS at that time? I dont see how siding with white women benefits us collectively as you pointed out in your comment about the jewish community.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yeah, and I can't get past him saying 'we're past kneeling. It's time for action.' Excuse me Jay, but kneeling was taking action. Kaep did his individual protest from HIS heart when no one else said a damn thing. THEN everyone else came along. Jay was one of the main ones telling people not to perform. Even had Rihanna saying she turned them down, only for a few months later this dude went and made his own side deal that benefits him and only him. I never cared about him either way, not even when he was hot, but now.... I have no respect for him. AT ALL. And now he's going to tell the Travyon story. He simply is making money off of people when it looks like he was really caring about injustice, he was just laying out the carpet to make his kill.

  • grenadiadrian

    When Kap was the toast of the NFL in 2012-2013, man was only concerned with one thing: HIS IMAGE. Only after he sucked so bad in 2015 when he lost his starting position and was about to be the laughingstock of the league as being the QB who lost his job to Blaine Gabbert (of ALL people!) did he change up, grow out his hair, and put up a fist embracing his "blackness." He knew his 15 minutes were about to fade off so the protest was born and it's more than kept him in the spotlight...it's kept him PAID.

  • gellie

    Siding with white women?? What are you talking about?? What I said is very clear. You have a situation where kids are hungry, fathers are absent or unable to provide. What the hell were they supposed to do, NOT take the assistance? Stop it with the Pickmesha nonsense. Every other community of men took responsibility for their community and protecting the women and children in it. The MEN did it. What have our men done other than blame racism and WS...oh and black women for accepting assistance so they can feed their kids?

  • Jethro

    Robert Byrd died in 2010, Einstein.

    Also, "Unlike other Southern Democrats, like Sens. Strom Thurmond or Richard Shelby, Byrd didn't migrate to the Republicans." - socialistworker dot org/2010/06/30/the-last-dixiecrat

    Once again, stupid, Dixiecrats migrated to the Republicon party.

    Stay willfully-ignorant, troll. Your pay should be docked for ineffectiveness.

  • Mrs. Davis804

    You can pretend it was righteous, but the benign neglect and other factors are still around negatively effecting the same children. Those are not beneficial to the collective. So was it worth it to side with white women who under the vilest of circumstances dont go against their own?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    What does the past have to do with the present? We have those rights that Nina, James and Josephine fought for but little of anything else...there was a difference back then because we didn't have the basic shit that whites had...these entertainers now cant hold a flame to the ones you mentioned...they are self-serving and self-indulgent..being in charge of a light show is not progression...lets not forget the Barneys incident that Jay Z became a "rep" for...he's been making horrible business moves lately and the whole sell your soul thing is real when it pertains to him...

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Everything you wrote is so true! I was ok with him making the deal as a business move, but I didn’t know he would have to publicly denounce, check or belittle Colin as part of the deal!

    Him and Roger think they are shutting down Colin, the protest, players kneeling, but I don’t believe the protest will cease, I won’t be watching!

    It was a COON MOVE, and even white people comment that Jay-Z was bought and sold, and aren’t pleased with the NFL! Treacherous!

  • Reina1718

    Ok what would you do? To help us move fwd?

  • And then there is that!

    Okay so everyone keeps saying everything will be okay as long as Kaep has a job. Say they offer him a job back, he is willing to play for the same franchise that fired him over his protest. So his protest was in vain. If his protest is opening doors for change and they are putting us at the table then I say he won. I would rather see Jay Z and any other black people at the table actually creating change then Kaep going back into a system just to save face. You want change, but you want the white people to change it. But then turn around and say the white people trying to save face. Then a black person does it then you call them a sell out. I promise it is no pleasing people. So to that I say Jay do you boo and push for change inside the boardroom, instead of in interviews, press and talking where the narrative will get lost on the next big sound bite!

  • YellowSauce

    This never had anything to do with us anyways HELLO .............
    Colin AND Jay are BOTH rich and chillin ..... NEXT

  • Reenaface

    Nessa being his handler..... allegedly.

  • gellie

    Wait, what?? White women go against white men all the time. They literally fight ALL THE TIME. And white women actually get shit when they go at their men. We put no demands or expectations on our men. And they STILL complain. They STILL blame us for them not having shit, not building shit, not protecting shit. And then here come the Pickmeshas (YOU) backing them up.

  • Unpopular Opinion

    manipulated that album to appear to be black empowerment.

  • Reenaface

    Just wondering if you caught the Netflix documentary about the Kalief Browder story. I did, I saw Jay-z taking photo OP picks with Kalief and that was it. He did not reach out to Kalief and offer any services to help him, no residential services to get him out of that hell hole neighborhood he was forced to return to, no money assistance nothing. But you know who was there for him upon his release was Rosie O'Donnell and not to toot on her horn too much because she's a toxic person. But she did bring Kalief to The View show when she was on at the time to interview him about his case against Rikers island and she gave him a Macbook to help him with school. He also had her personal phone number and email which he used frequently because Rosie genuinely wanted to keep in touch with him to find out how he was doing with his case which was more than Jay-z offered, his ass just wanted to take pics with Kalief because his case was a hot button issue, he is an opportunist and that is all he will ever be. If anyone is looking to him for inspiration or to lift black people from their plight, you would really need to do your research.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You a man hater... and most of them chick have 10 kids by 15 different “niggas” so go to blame for that

  • Reenaface

    Unless that political change involved changing policy then that doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. Try going against the old order of ways and see if you don't catch a bullet to the head. ie MLK.

  • bb1812

    Man, fook Jay. "We're past kneeling". Who is "we"? Jay never has or ever will take a knee. There is no Jay/NFL deal without Colin taking a knee in the 1st place, but 'we past kneeling'. Oh okay. Bet afterwards Goodell et al had a good guffaw at Jay's big lips, his incoherent way of speaking & how they bamboozled tf outta him.

  • Reenaface

    Exactly. They got Jay-z's ass in charge of music/enetertainment, where all black artists get regulated to. His ass ain't sitting on no NFL committee making decisions.

  • bb1812

    Thank you. Brilliant recap.

  • bb1812

    Exactly. Don't believe anything coming from Jay at this point. But Travis knows the truth...

  • EMILY POST

    Never again. Is right . You have to give the other minorities their respect for making sure to make economics of their people and community a priority.

  • Mrs. Davis804

    Pickmesha? I'm already chosen, raising sons, and speaking from the available economic data that advises there was no benefit to ADOS/FBA from supporting them, even though you feel they got whatever it is they have. I realized long ago that putting conditions on a race of men that can't control their own quality of life, try as they might, is what got us here.

  • Reina1718

    Thank u! & for ppl calling Jay a coon, what do they do to uplift their ppl?? Educate our ppl? Etc

  • Reina1718

    You sound so angry, i hope you help your community out or the lost youth out there.

    Even if that were true, which it probably isn't because it's coming from a clueless moron, the FACT that Dixiecrats migrated to the Republicon Party stands.

    Anything BUT this would have been a step forward. This man took us 100 steps back with this BS move. You can not be serious. When you listened to his response during his BS conference you really could not see pass the BS? He said we need to move to step 2? Did he say what Step 2 was? Did he give any clear directions on what his plan was? This is the same man that has allegedly cheated on B and Nas, 2pac and Dame Dash has already told you how he rock. Now you can add all of black America and Colin Kapernich to this shit list.... Maya Angelou said if someone show you who they are believe them but we just going to keep hope alive and not expect him to say anything profound at all to justify this move he just made. If we don't hold these people accountable for what they do...you will continue to find your self asking this same question with the next black billionaire that put up a smoke screen....I can't even believe I initially fell for this! He is a freaking rapper who sold crack to his momma and I thought he had potential. Im disappointed in myself.

  • Look@m3

    Chile you should watch this Free Meek documentary. ...I don't know what they about to use Meek Mill for but he in deep because that entire documentary was a clean up campaign for his image.I don't believe ANY darn thing that was said in that documentary. Highy suspect!! Im just waiting on someone else to pick up on what I picked up on but no one is talking about it.....This add to my distrust for Jay as well. They pitched a campaign to make the black judge look bad and black cops look bad.......even though they not applying any of these investigations to any of the cops or judges that are wrongfully killing black people.

  • Look@m3

    OMFG.....After watching Free meek I said I need to go back and revisit this Kalief Browder story because I saw something things in this free meek documentary that just was NOT right in my spirit......mmm.mmm.mmm.!!

  • Look@m3

    2pac, Nas,......now Colin and the entire black community in AMERICA. oh and allegedly Beyonce so I think his track record has said enough...

  • Look@m3

    You should definitely watch the Free Meek Documentary then.....come back and tell me what you think the. HA!

  • Look@m3

    Right he said nothing in that NFL conference. Who holds a conference to say absolutely nothing??? and everybody still talking bout he the goat. yeah he the Goat at selling out.

    I need to check out that Free Meek documentary. But yeah, revisit the Kalief Browder story and you'll see that Jay didn't do shit to help that young brother, other than to pose with him for some pics.

    I saw the advertisement, I will check it out.

  • Reina1718

    I mean it JUST got into the works, nothing is done overnight. Your basically saying people dont change.. he is moving BEYOND the kneel... what happens next is what he wants to pursue not to keep kneeling. Harriet Tubman freed slaves & said she could have saved more if only they knew they were slaves.. Colin “talked” no action.. Colin wanted hus job back! He has a Nike endorsement! Arent they racist ?

    I'm exausted.....this has exhausted me. This is all wrong and I dont have the energy today. If you comfortable following a man that says we need to move to step 2 with out laying out a plan then go ahead and keep waiting for jay z to make something happen. We had a whole black president and....nvm. have a good day!
