If you thought Colin Kaepernick would be happy with the NFL’s level of woke — end zone social justice messages, playing the black national anthem, allowing players to put social justice messages and names on the back of their helmets, midfield unity meetings — you’d be wrong. It’s not enough for the Woke Czar.
“While the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about Black Life, they are still actively blackballing Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) for fighting for the Black community,” the Woke Czar tweeted Sunday. “Eric set 2 franchise records last year, and is one of the best defensive players in the league.”
Kaepernick might’ve been onto something, but then he added Reid is “one of the best defensive players in the league.” Reid, 28, hasn’t made a Pro Bowl since 2013. Let’s look at the safety position right now. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (started 16 games in 2019 just like Reid) is unemployed and a year younger than Reid. Earl Thomas, 31, is coming off a 2019 Pro Bowl appearance and is unemployed and it wasn’t due to his play on the field.
It’s a tough world out there finding employment, but the Woke Czar believes the NFL has it out for Reid. When you see blue checkmarks firing off tweets this week about Eric Reid being blackballed, keep in mind these other guys out here that are just as unemployed as Kaep’s buddy.
