The NFL donates billions to racismekampen in the UNITED states

When quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016 began to put himself on his knees under the nationalmelodien for the NFL matches as a protest against racism and police violence against the black, caused a great uproar.

President Donald Trump criticized Kaepernick, and those who followed after, in clear terms, and management in the NFL sought to curb the protests, which divided the waters and threatened their audience shares.

But now he has changed his tune had a different sound.

on Thursday evening, american time did the NFL management out a press release concerning financial support for the fight against racism.

- We, the NFL, condemns the racism and the systematic oppression of black people, said Goodell last week.

- We, the NFL, admits that we were wrong by not listening to NFL players past and encourage all to speak loud about it and peaceful protest, he added, with reference to the ballad of Kaepernick in 2016 and 2017.

Colin Kaepernick left the San Francisco 49ers after the 2016 season, where he had created quite a stir by sitting on his knees before all the fighting.

He laid the year after the lawsuit against the NFL. He believed that no team would want to sign a contract with him, because the league had made him undesirable due to the protests.
