Cole and Songz show support for Colin Kaepernick.
Colin Kaepernick's protest o the national anthem has garnered plenty of attention. It has earned Kaepernick ardent haters and supporters alike. President Obama articulated his support of Kaepernick's right to protest. Over the weekend, Trey Songz and J Cole showed support by rocking Kaepernick jerseys (now the best-selling NFL jersey on the market) at their respective performances over the weekend.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said. “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.”
