    A group of NFL players from across the league have gathered for a 70-second video demanding that the NFL deliver a clear message about racial injustice in the wake of the death of George Floyd.The video starts with Saints receiver Michael Thomas saying, “It’s been 10 days since George Floyd was brutally murdered.”Then comes DeAndre Hopkins to ask, “What will it take?”“For one of us to be murdered by police brutality?” Browns receiver Jarvis Landry adds.“What if I was George Floyd?” Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson asks.“If I was George Floyd,” Giants running back Saquon Barkley also asks.“What if I was...

    Dallas News ^ | 01 22 2020 | Dana Branham
    A public-service announcement honoring the life of Botham Jean will be shown during the Super Bowl as part of a partnership between the Jean family’s foundation and the NFL, according to the family’s lawyer. The 2-minute video was released online Wednesday and shows the “human cost of police brutality” from the Jean family’s perspective, said attorney Lee Merritt. Jean, 26, was fatally shot in his own apartment in 2018 by former Dallas officer Amber Guyger, who was convicted of murder last year and is now serving a 10-year prison sentence. Merritt said the video, produced by Jay-Z’s company Roc Nation...

    Jay-Z is unhappy with the way Colin Kaepernick handled his workout on Saturday -- our sources feel Colin "turned a legitimate workout into a publicity stunt." As we previously reported, Colin bailed on the NFL's workout Saturday and held his own workout instead. Colin claims he wanted transparency -- insisting the NFL would not allow him to have media at the workout. Sources close to Jay-Z tell us ... Jay is unhappy with the way things went down because he feels the league was genuine in trying to give Colin an opportunity. Colin went through with his workout at a...

    Details on Colin Kaepernick’s Saturday workout at the #Falcons facility that has the feel of a Combine:— It begins at 3 pm— Interview is at 3:15 pm— Measurements, stretching & warmups are next.— Timing & testing at 3:50 pm— QB drills at 4:15All parts recorded for 32 teams.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 13, 2019 Reid, who plays for the Carolina Panthers, is one of several critics to express skepticism that Kaepernick’s league-arranged workout is a genuine path back to the NFL. “I’ll believe it when I see it,” Reid told reporters on Wednesday. “At this point, it feels like...

    This Colin Kaepernick workout situation has been haphazard and it's hard to know exactly what to make from it. Beyond that, where did it come from? Dan Patrick has a source who believes Jay-Z was behind the decision for the NFL to grant him this workout: Patrick said: "According to my source, Jay-Z said that he took a reputational bullet for the Commissioner when they had that press conference [with] his new role in the NFL. Social agenda. Social injustice. He was gonna help with the entertainment for halftime. All of this. My source said that Jay-Z was pressuring the...

    An attorney representing former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sharply criticized rapper Jay-Z on Tuesday after Jay-Z met with NFL officials to speak about social justice issues while Kaepernick remains unemployed. SNIP Mark Geragos, who is representing Kaepernick in his dealings with the NFL, told ABC News that the partnership amounted to crossing an "intellectual picket line." "This deal between Jay-Z and the NFL crosses the intellectual picket line," Geragos told ABC. "I can confirm to you that the deal was already done prior to any conversation that [Kaepernick] had with Jay-Z and he certainly didn’t have any conversations...

    New York Post ^ | Phil Mushnick
    This week, the NFL, with its $42 million-per man at the wheel, committed another act of putting up while shutting up. It named Jay-Z and his entertainment/rep company Roc Nation to “enhance the NFL’s live game experiences and to amplify the league’s social justice efforts.” Jay-Z also will contribute to and supervise Super Bowl halftime acts. Of course, having named the fabulously wealthy and popular rapper its “social justice” monitor, no one from the NFL — certainly not Goodell — would dare read the lyrics of the scores of numbers that have brought Jay-Z his fame, fortune and, now, NFL-assigned...

    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

    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...

    On Tuesday, as the Mummers Parade festivities were moving from your television screen to drunken celebrations down on Two Street, a scandal began unfolding involving a local Mummers troupe and its purported use of blackface. Except — says the performer being accused — there was no blackface. The skit in question came to us courtesy of Finnegan New Years Brigade Comic Club, which previously ran afoul of public opinion with a 2016 routine making fun of Caitlyn Jenner.

    Jay-Z, Meek Mill and sport and business leaders have pledged $50m (£38m) to reform the US criminal justice system. The Reform Alliance, which was inspired by Meek Mill's recent stint in prison for a minor probation violation, hopes to free one million prisoners in five years. The owners of the New England Patriots and Philadelphia 76ers, Robert Kraft and Michael Rubin, are co-founders. Reform says it wants to help people who are "trapped in the system". The group's "mission" is to "dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system, starting with...

    Jay-Z isn't the only person upset with Travis Scott for agreeing to perform with Maroon 5 at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. Rev. Al Sharpton slammed Scott, claiming that Scott essentially turned his back on the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality against people of color by agreeing to perform at the NFL's biggest night. "I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that...

    A top Hollywood publicist says the excitement in Los Angeles over Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke is at a level he hasn't seen for a national liberal politician in years. Danny Deraney, whose clientele has included A-listers like Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Madonna, told NBC News in another profile of O'Rourke that he has effectively swept the famously progressive town off its feet: Danny Deraney, a Hollywood publicist who has worked with celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Madonna, said he hasn't seen Los Angeles this excited about a national politician in years. "Barack Obama kind of swept everybody...

    When First Lady Melania Trump said in an interview during her African trip that she “could say I'm the most bullied person on the world,” or at least “one of them, if you really see what people are saying about me,” the media guffawed: what would she know about bullying, being a privileged white woman and all? Of course the media immediately validated her claims by criticizing everything she said - and wore - during her trip: On Saturday, Twitter users compared Melania’s Egypt outfit — a Ralph Lauren jacket, wide-leg pants, and a Chanel blouse — to the clothing...

    When Beyonce and Jay Z are performing, all eyes are glue to the stage. Unless, that is, Barack Obama is rocking out behind you. Fans were delighted to spot the former U.S. president unleashing his best dad moves with wife Michelle beside him in a private booth at the FedExField in Landover, Maryland on Saturday. Throwing their arms in the air during Jay's track N****s in Paris, the former first couple were on their feet and clearly loving every moment as their old friends lit up the stage.

    In what may be the most reckless bit of leftist posturing yet, billionaire multimedia mogul Jay-Z has none too subtly asked his followers to kill George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin five years ago. Jay-Z apparently added a line to a new release by the hip-hop artist Drake. “I got your president tweeting/I won't even met with him/Y'all killed X and let Zimmerman live/Streets is done.” “X” refers to rapper XXXTentacion who was gunned down in South Florida last week. “Drake” was trending on Twitter Friday morning as was “Scorpion” as was “Zimmerman.” The...
