Colin Kaepernick‘s girlfriend Nessa cannot believe that Jay-Z has partnered with the NFL….after it ruined the athlete’s career.
Any negative energy that Jay Z is getting for working with the NFL is crazy! Using his platform as an entertainer to get inside to make change is fair. Who cares if he gets $! We know that if he’s present, we’ll see some progress!!
Nike did it and was celebrated! Same energy.

So the NFL is forming an entertainment and "social justice" partnership with Jay-Z and his Roc Nation agency.
Jay Z hasn't spoken with Colin Kaepernick about this and yet says he was an "inspiration."
If this isn't Black capitalism exploiting the movement I don't know what is.

Jay-Z teamed up with the National Football League to help it rectify its mistakes and use its resources to bring positive change in the communities most affected the injustices Colin has been defending selflessly and tirelessly.
Nessa, Colin’s other half, sees it differently.
We will never turn our backs on @kaepernick7 because your idols decided to work with the same organization that is actively keeping Colin unemployed all because he peacefully protested against social injustice in black and brown communities, specifically police brutality.”
So really, how can Jay-Z and the NFL utter social justice in their partnership while keeping Colin unemployed because of his social justice work. It’s typical for the NFL to buy different PR looks to cover up their dirt-that’s nothing new. But what is disgusting and disappointing is Jay-Z let them use him. Whether Jay-Z knew it or not (I don’t doubt his intelligence-so I would think he knew) he helped the NFL bury who he said is an iconic figure, Colin Kaepernick.
Don’t tell me there’s a “master plan and wait for it” because the ONLY reason anything would ever change is because THE PEOPLE are loud and clear and won’t let the league buy their loyalty with their disingenuous moves. The people are letting the league and anyone who works with them know that they aren’t buying the bs.
Colin agrees with her…
