Jay-Z to become part-owner of National Football League team

Jay-Z's partnership with the NFL is just another reminder that capitalism always wins

Jay-Z's partnership with the NFL is just another reminder that capitalism always wins

Panthers safety Eric Reid, an ardent supporter of Colin Kaepernick from the moment Kaepernick began to protest systemic opression of minorities during the national anthem three years ago, continues to loudly support Kaepernick. Jay-Z said "we're past the point of kneeling" and it's time to move on with "actionable items".

While audio of his questions to Jay were shown in a video clip, the Breakfast Club co-host claims the football corporation edited all of his questions that were directed to Goodell. The entities plan to work together on the NFL's live game experience and Super Bowl halftime shows while incorporating social justice efforts. He was a part owner of the Brooklyn Nets but sold his share in the team in 2013 when he launched Roc Nation Sports, a sports agency, due to a conflict of interest.

Following a preseason game against the Buffalo Bills, Reid continued to blast the music mogul's newly announced partnership with the league aimed at strengthening the "community through music and the NFL's Inspire Change initiative".

"The NFL has a great big platform, and it has to be all-inclusive", said JAY-Z, who has been an outspoken critic of the league in the past.

"To take it back, I think that we forget that Colin's whole thing was to bring attention to social injustice, right?"

Reid likewise has some choice words for ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith, who echoed Jay-Z's call to not get caught up in the fact that Kaepernick is unemployed when assessing the potential benefits of the NFL/Roc Nation deal. You go outside and you protest, and then the company or the individual says, 'I hear you. Jay-Z also reportedly claimed he spoke to Kaepernick about the deal, which Kaepernick's girlfriend said was a lie. Let us know what you think of this development in the comments, and check the inevitable reactions below. "I'm into action, I'm into real work- I'm not into how it looks from the outside". How are we going to stop - cause the kneeling was not about a job it was about injustice.
