Ousted “Black Lives Matter” activist Shaun King (nickname: Talcum X) spread a dubious rumor on Twitter that several top NFL stars are considering boycotting the upcoming football season until unemployed NFL kneelers Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid are hired by a team.
King tweeted, “BREAKING: Several star NFL players have told me they are considering sitting out the season until the de facto ban of Eric Reid and Colin Kaepernick is removed and both men are given spots back on rosters. They aim to get 25% of the players to sit out with them.”
King was immediately shut down by many on Twitter, who did not believe the rumors. It defies logic that any NFL athlete — whose careers are already short to begin with — would give up an entire season simply to protest a new league rule requiring them to stand for the U.S. national anthem.
Standing for the Star-Spangled Banner is a time-honored tradition that every NFL player participated in without question for years until 2016, when Colin Kaepernick decided to hijack a football game by disrespecting the American flag.
“Dude, this story is faker than your blackness,” sports journalist Clay Travis tweeted.

Travis was alluding to numerous reports confirming that Shaun King — who has based his entire race-baiting career on his inauthentic blackness — is actually white.
Out of curiousity… are you still pretending to be black? https://t.co/sZa04UHRUa

For context, enjoy this lovely photo montage of King’s white mom, dad, and brother.
There are also photos of young Shaun before he started identifying as black to take advantage of affirmative-action programs that are supposed to benefit actual African-Americans.
Sports radio host Howard Eskin said King is out of his mind because most NFL players can’t afford to turn down an entire season’s salary to defend the unpatriotic, unpopular gesture of kneeling during the national anthem.
Eskin tweeted: “You must be really naive. The players that make a lot of money won’t give that up and the players that don’t make the multi millions can’t afford it…you are being used for propaganda.
Shawn you must be really naive. The players that make a lot of money won’t give that up and the players that don’t make the multi millions can’t afford it. Shawn sounds like you are being used for propaganda. https://t.co/dtvR3ZLtTm

Chris Bev clapped back:
1. star players aren’t passing up those pay checks
2. star players aren’t talking to you
3. you’re white.”

Predictably, many liberals were excited at the thought that top NFL stars would support Colin Kaepernick’s anti-American protest.
Comedian Chelsea Handler gleefully tweeted: “This would be awesome. I would love to see these guys stand up for their fellow players who are being discriminated against. Hit the NFL where it hurts.”

CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill gushed: “If they do it, this would be MAJOR. Organized people defeat organized power.”

The irony of liberals excitedly rooting for black unemployment can’t be overstated. While leftists have attacked the National Football League as racist for stating that players must stand for their own national anthem, it bears noting that no organization has produced more black millionaires than the NFL.
Moreover, sports analysts say the reason why Kaepernick has not been picked up by another team after he left his lucrative contract with the San Francisco 49ers is because of performance. It has little to do with his race or his anti-American protests, which decimated NFL TV ratings last season.

As BizPac Review has reported, black sports journalist Jason Whitlock, the co-host of Fox Sports 1, said Kaepernick is unemployed because he’s a mediocre quarterback. Race has nothing to do with it.
“This is simply a case of a guy who’s not good enough,” said Whitlock. “His talents aren’t good enough to justify all the attention and noise and controversy. Tim Tebow [who’s white] ran into this exact same issue.”
Many believe Kaepernick sealed his fate with the American public when his charity donated money to a convicted cop killer.
