  • 'We've come so far': how black quarterbacks defied a racist past to become the NFL's future

    As the NFL celebrates its centennial season, a rising vanguard of African American quarterbacks is shattering stereotypes at a position once considered off-limits to black players From his seat at M&T Bank Stadium during last weekend’s NFL game between the Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals, Cyrus Mehri knew he was witnessing something special. In a matchup of the youngest African American starting quarterbacks in the Super Bowl era, 22-year-old Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, the top pick in this year’s draft, threw for 349 yards in only his second professional contest. Not to be outdone, second-year Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, also...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Antonio Brown’s Patriots career is over after one game. ADVERTISING After a controversial day, the Patriots released the wide receiver from their roster. “The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown,” Patriots spokesperson Stacey James said. “We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time.” The news broke Friday, just moments after Brown shared some posts on social media that indicated something was about to take place. He posted a photo of himself and Tom Brady to...

    The Houston Texans’ new wide receiver, Kenny Stills, took a knee during the national anthem before his first game playing for the team on Monday. In footage captured of the moment, Stills could be seen kneeling while “The Star Spangled Banner” played ahead of the team’s matchup against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. The move comes roughly a week after the athlete was traded to the team from the Miami Dolphins.

  • It’s Time for Colin Kaepernick to Move On: How Jay-Z was canceled for saying as much

    National Review ^ | 08/19/2019 | Kyle Smith
    Colin Kaepernick. Remember him? Below-average quarterback. Above-average poseur. Not “activist,” not really. Activists actually say stuff. Kaepernick almost never says anything. He’s like the Queen or most popes — you have to read the deep-background musings of supposed members of his inner circle to get a clue as to what he might be thinking. Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016, when anyway he was merely the disappointing starter on its worst team, and given that dozens of quarterbacks have entered the league since then and that he’s been gathering rust like the Tin Woodman for three years, he...

    We regret to inform you that Jay-Z has been canceled. No, it’s not his future ­album, or his next concert, that has been canceled — but Jay-Z, the human being. He has been axed, nixed, non-personed. On Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Jay-Z announced a partnership between the league and the legendary rapper’s entertainment company, Roc Nation. The partnership would be part entertainment and part activism and involve the NFL’s “Inspire Change” campaign, which will promote criminal-justice reform and better police-community relations. The online backlash came ­almost instantaneously. The ­anger at Jay-Z involved his support for Colin Kaepernick, the...
  • The NFL’s Newest Best Friend Forever: Jay-Z

    08/17/2019 5:00:14 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 40 replies ^ | August 17, 2019 | Carl Horowitz
    When it comes to racial shakedowns, few organizations succumb on a grander scale than the National Football League. This tendency was on full display on Tuesday when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and black rapper/business mogul Jay-Z announced a multiyear partnership “to enhance the NFL’s live game experiences and to amplify the league’s social justice efforts.” More plainly, the league is about to entangle itself further with political radicalism. Goodell and company may believe that the pact is good for public relations, but they could not be more wrong. The NFL for many years has been a prime target of black...

    RUSH: Jay-Z being hired by the NFL. We were going to get into this yesterday and of course time expired before I had a chance to get into it. And here’s what happened: Jay-Z’s real name is Shawn Carter. He’s the husband of Beyonce. And they’ve put together a massive musical empire. His net worth reportedly is a billion dollars. You should know that’s not enough to own an NFL team. You need more than that to be approved for ownership. It’s not enough anymore. So the NFL has hired Jay-Z essentially as music director for the Super Bowl halftime...

    Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he's ready to return to the NFL in a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday. The video starts with a countdown saying, "Denied work for 889 days." The quarterback turned political activist has not been offered a contract with an NFL team since being released by the 49ers after the 2016 season when he made headlines for kneeling during the national anthem at games. The 49ers went 1-10 in Kaepernick's 11 starts that season, and he threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns with four interceptions. Despite not being in the league...
