Martin Luther King III Calls For NFL Boycott Until Colin Kaepernick Signs
Just like many others, human rights advocate Martin Luther King III wants Colin Kaepernick in the NFL!
TMZ recently caught up with the son of Martin Luther King Jr., who explained that if the fans were to stop watching the NFL, Colin Kaepernick would probably be on an NFL team right now. He also believes that King III has been “blackballed” by the league simply because he still has the ability to play at a high level.
“What would change it overnight is if the public decided, ‘Okay, we’re not going to watch,'” Luther King III said. He added, “The industry did blackball him, which is not good,” MLK III says … “He certainly is one of the most talented quarterbacks even today, probably.”
As we previously reported, Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2016 season. It was the time he protested during the national anthem, which drew a ton of attention. Kaep started his movement to following the events of a police shooting in 2015.
King III explained that although the “industry did blackball” Kaepernick, “there might be some owners that are empathetic,” sharing that he “had heard that a couple of owners might employ him.”
