NFL Funds 'Social Justice Protest Training' for Black College Sports

Rebel Staff

Over the past few months, hundreds of NFL players have been taking a knee during the national anthem before their games. Though they claim to be doing this to protest against Donald Trump and against racial inequality, many have rightfully read it as a show of disrespect against law enforcement, the military, and the American flag. 

Instead of stopping these anti-American protests, the NFL has instead encouraged them by pledging to spend $90 million on funding "social justice causes." New reports have revealed that one of the programs the NFL is funding is social justice training for college football players and other students. The historically black Morehouse College just announced that the NFL will be cohosting a three-day workshop to teach student-athletes how to be “influencers and community leaders with the mechanics to develop their advocacy platform.”

“This historic workshop is aimed at training the next generation of athletes who wish to use sport as a powerful platform for advocacy,” the NFL’s Executive Vice President of Football Operations, Troy Vincent, said in an NFL press release. “Our partnership is designed to equip athletes as influencers and community leaders with the mechanics to develop their advocacy platform."

What a waste of money...

The NFL's ratings have plummeted since the anthem protests began, with Americans deciding to turn off their televisions rather than watch our flag be disrespected. The logical solution to this would be for the NFL to simply ban the protests, but they are so afraid of being seen as "racist" that they are instead fanning the flames by funding social justice nonsense.

It will be very “telling” how many of these overpaid social justice “warriors” actually spend even one minute in Southside Chicago encouraging potential gangbangers to get an education, get a job, and learn to speak proper English… Oh, and if you get a girl pregnant do the right thing and be a “Dad”…

North American Football is in its down- hill days. The Medical proof of concussions and the eventual early death in some cases has most parents unfortunately going to Soccer.
Soon our Feminine Run Education System will outlaw Swings and Teeter-totters for the sissy generations. Just look at our laughable University students to see the future results of these policies.

Like everything else, the NFL has a bureaucracy that has been taken over by leftist Social Justice Warriors that know nothing about the game and its fan base. MBAs and marketing geniouses trying to turn the players into community organizers. Now where have we heard that term community organizer before?
According to a Wall Street Journal study, actual play time averages 11 minutes for the 3 hour plus time taken to broadcast the game. The rest of the time is taken up by advertizing and watching players and coaches standing and loitering around. Not the best use of time.
I have followed NFL for many years but I am now totally indiffent and will not bother with watching the playoffs or SuperBowl. The entire thing is a giant cliche with marketing schemes like the half time show and the stupid and vapid special commercials that idiots are drawn to on Super Sunday. Dogs bringing you a beer or Doritos to your couch on game day isn’t interesting to me.
The NFL has lost a lot of their real fans and trying to capture the millenials is going to be a hard sell . It will survive but their hayday may have past.

The NFL appear to be funding and inciting anti-white racism. What a wonderful friendly organization to belong to.

Karan Singh—Your question as to why the Blacks couldn’t be successful with a rich place like Liberia, reminded me of a Science Video I read and saw last week.
The Blacks have been in Africa for 3000 years; Why have they never built a City?
Then we have proof that they can compete with anyone; In the 1970’s Detroit , they had many middle and upper class neighborhoods which they maintained in a classy way.
Another puzzle for me is the teenage girls that were born and grew up in the US cannot speak English to even a below grade one level. How is that possible?

We’re witnessing the Fall of Roman Empire version 2.0. Same as in those days the destruction is being carried out by country elites funded by our tax dollar.
They take our money then spend it to destroy our culture & society. Stupid are the people who pay them their hard earned money to watch their rigged, vulgar games.
200 years of civilization & 150 years of full freedom, equality & education has still not changed them into decent, moralistic, civilized humans.
Some argue that blacks are still facing racism in US & the protests are the result of discriminatory policies of white people. Then why these blacks couldn’t do anything good in Liberia where blacks were given a very productive country with access to the coast & left in full freedom. Why they still are sucking on US teats after 150 years?
The whole of African continent has been nothing but a leech. In the last 70 years Trillions of dollars have been invested & given in aid to bring civilization, development & prosperity among the african poor, all in vain. Mentally, Socially, Ethically & Economically, they still are (or much worse) than they were 100 years ago. Tragedy is that while supporting these parasites, in a futile hope of uplifting them, the western countries themselves have become the victim & infected to the point of annihilation.

To me they’re irrelevant. I don’t watch the NFL anyway.

I hope these clowns remember that their actions may be used by others in areas they do not agree with , i wonder how many of them will show respect when protests are targeted where they do not like? I bet many of them will take the Hypocritical highway.

Helping them to be a positive influence and a good role model in society is a good idea. But if they turn out hard working and responsible and tolerant the left will condemn and attack them in the future.

TAKE POLITICS OUT OF SPORT I HAVE NOT WATCHED ONE NFL GAME IF YOU LIKE FOOTBALL WATCH THE CFL. THE PLAYERS ARE ACTING LIKE CHILDREN SO TO HELL WITH THE NFL. BESIDES IT’S TOO COLD LETS PLAY HOCKEY
OFF TOPIC
IF YOU HAVE A FRIEND OR RELATIVE WHO YOU THINK WOULD ENJOY THE REBEL MEDIA …. WHY NOT BUY THEM A SUBSCRIPTION ….. I’M SURE THEY WOULD LIKE THE NEW LINE UP … FROM TOMMY ROBINSON’S READING OF THE MORNING PAPERS ,,,, JOHN CARDILLO’S EXCELLENT REPORTING ,,,, THE DAILY TONGUE IN CHEEK REPORTS FROM DAVID MENZIES ,,,, CHRISTOPHER WILSON REPORTS FROM THE LEFT COAST ,,,,, START YOUR DAY WITH MARK LATHAM COMMENTS FROM DOWN UNDER. I CAN GO ON BUT BUYING A SUBSCRIPTION FOR A FRIEND OR FAMILY WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF BUYING A GIFT FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS EVERYTHING, BUYING A SUBSCRIPTION SOLVES THE PROBLEM.

Unlike other races, Blacks would be welcome in most African Countries, especially if they have some money to start a business. Blacks, make the decision if you are unhappy.

… Tired babies sit in high chairs and spill their food on the floor. Start crying and pounding their tray.
… That is “protesters”.
