Fans protested outside of the NFL headquarters in New York City on Wednesday, August 23, demanding that Colin Kaepernick be able to play for a team this season. Any team.


The protesters believe that the star athlete is being blackballed for participating in a protest of his own while kneeling during the national anthem at the start of each game.

Derrick Johnson, NAACP interim president, and CEO, requested a meeting with NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, as he believes it’s “no sheer coincidence” that Kaepernick hasn’t been picked up by a team this season. Johnson added, “No player should be victimized and discriminated against because of his exercise of free speech – to do so is in violation of his rights under the Constitution and the NFL’s own regulations.”
