By Bigoa Machar

With all kinds of reactions to President Donald Trump’s Twitter remarks towards Steph Curry and the various NFL players choosing to protest during the American national anthem, J. Cole took to Twitter to address the situation. In a long series of Tweets, Cole commended those players participating in the protest, praising their bravery and courage. “God bless every player that finds [the] courage to kneel today.”

Cole then went on to discuss how those at home can make their voice heard. He stressed the importance of viewership to the NFL and how changing the channel is the most impactful way of protesting.

Cole also took the time to talk about Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback that made waves last season by starting the anthem protest. The North Carolina rapper called for the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) to investigate whether or not Kaepernick’s protest played a factor in him being currently unemployed. “Hire 3rd party investigator approved by NFLPA to determine if [Kaepernick] was denied a job unfairly as punishment for his stance. (I know, I know)” (Read More)
