JayZ’s Football Fumble: Fans Are Confused About His New NFL Partnership

Fans are throwing the flag on JayZ latest play on the football field.  This week, JayZ shocked the nation when he announced his Roc Nation would be partnering with the NFL.  The deal means JayZ will be providing the entertainment line up for the NFL and that includes the coveted Super Bowl halftime show.

A lot of fans are slamming JayZ for being in league with the NFL especially after it blackballed Colin Kaepernick for peaceful protest by kneeling during the national anthem.

The treatment of Kaepernick left a lot of football fans angry and now they’re just confused how JayZ who supported Kap is making deals with the devils that burned him.

Fans aren’t the only ones fuming over the football deal with JayZ. Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid is tackling the music mogul on this move.

Reid told TMZ that JayZ “is selling out and helping “bury”  Kap’s career.”  Reid continued blasting JayZ saying “…It looks like your goal was to make millions and millions of dollars by assisting the NFL in burying Colin’s career.”

It’s obvious what the NFL is getting out of the deal.  JayZ won’t just be providing them with entertainment, but containment of their race relations problem.  The Kap situation left many aware that the NFL doesn’t care about social issues facing minorities.  JayZ is providing some sort of safety net where he’s supposed to help out on social justice issues.

People may be jumping to judgment and blasting JayZ without knowing what his plans or true intentions are.  When asked if he would be involving Kap on plans to work with the league and social justice Jay responded “You’ll have to ask him, I’m not his boss. That’s for him to say.”(TMZ)

Some are defending JayZ and blaming Reid as someone who has no footing to criticize someone as a sell-out since he’s still playing pro football and is part of the problem he’s complaining about.

But one fan put this and all disappoint about celebs and public figures in the proper perspective…

They’re athletes, not revolutionaries…. The sooner black people stop looking to celebrities, rappers, and athletes to be leaders, sooner we can move forward.

No need to figure out why they’re still playing they’re getting paid millions. They ain’t trying to mess that up.

We see celebs on TV, hear them singing the songs that connect with our spirits on the radio or see them act in a role that resonates with our lives and we accept them in our minds as people like us.

JayZ has made it clear he cares about some issues, but he’s not your moral or social leader.  He’s the guy who sells you music.  He’s the guy married to the beautiful singer who sells you music.  He’s in this to make money.  So why are people angry that he strikes a deal with the league some see as the devil to make more money.

We need to stop idolizing singers, actors, rappers, and athletes.  Just like a compass can’t help you find true north,  celebs are not here to point you in the direction you need to go in life. You can love their work, buy all their movies and songs.  But don’t look for them to be your personal heroes and saviors.  They just people trying to earn a buck.  Even if sometimes that means signing a deal with the devil.

    Halle Berry took off her clothes and had sex with a white man because she wants white people to make her feel good. Stacey Dash appeared on Fox News and insulted us because she wants white people to make her feel good. Kamala Harris put thousands of black people in jail because she wants white people to make her feel good. Jay-Z signed a deal with the NFL because he wants white people to make him feel good. In conclusion, most of these black celebrities and boule politicians will do anything the white man tells them to do because they want white men to make them feel good. It’s a real life version of the movie Monster’s Ball. #MakeMeFeelGood

    Jay-Z has always been a monster. He made a rap song called Monster. He sold drugs to us. Then he sold disgusting, devilish rap music to us. Unfortunately we purchased his drugs and his music. His drugs and his rap music has put thousands of black people in prison and in the cemetery. We gave him millions of our dollars. We worshiped Jay-Z so bad, we also gave millions of our dollars to his witch I mean his wife (Beyonce).

    Twenty five years later he signs a deal with the NFL, a corporation that has literally damaged the brains of thousands of black men. Should we blame Jay-Z? No! We should blame ourselves. We are the reason why Jay-Z became a billionaire. We are the reason the NFL makes $15 billion dollars a year. We created those two monsters and now those two monsters have formed a business partnership to further destroy us. The real tragedy is that we will continue to listen to Jay-Z and Beyonce’s music. Most black men nationwide will make appointments to watch the NFL every Sunday. The majority of black parents who have sons will continue to enroll their sons in football. In conclusion, we are our own worse enemies!

    The NFL stands for Negroes Fall in Line. All of the negroes playing and coaching in the NFL are falling in line accepting and eating their peanuts while the white owners eat prime rib and filet mignon.

    Black brothers and sistas, please do not fall for the same trick twice. The NBA, specifically the Brooklyn Nets used Jay-Z to stop the growing protests against the NBA and the massive gentrification in the Brooklyn Borough. The NBA used Jay-Z as a mascot to trick us into thinking that the basketball league respected black people and that Jay-Z owned a large portion of the Brooklyn Nets (Jay-Z only owned 1/15th of one percent of the team).

    The NFL will use Jay-Z in the same capacity. More and more black people realize the NFL is racist and therefore refuse to spend their time and money on the $15 billion dollar a year corporation. Over fifty percent of football players in the NFL are black. Guess what, there are no black owners. That’s not coincidence, that’s intentional, it’s also racist. Jay-Z’s job is to quell the anger, animosity and protests among us and convince us to spend our money on the racist NFL. Once again please do not fall for the same trick twice. Jay-Z is not part of the solution, he is part of the problem!

    Quote from the late Dick Gregory, “When I watch football, I see slavery all over again. Negroes in the field picking cotton with a football.”

    Attention all black parents. If you are considering enrolling your sons in football, you must read the book, “Play Hard, Die Young” by Dr. Bennett Omalu.

    Attention all black men. If you are a football fan, you need to know about the following former black football players:

    1. Junior Seau died at age 42

    2. Cortez Kennedy died at age 48

    3. Korey Stringer died at age 27

    4. Gene Lipscomb died at age 32

    5. Derrick Thomas died at age 33

    The dead football players I just named were black men who died before age 65. Black parents do you still want to enroll your sons in football?

    Jay has a point. It’s time to move beyond kneeling. It’s time to use the NFL, just like the NFL uses African Americans. Since we don’t know Jay’s complete agenda. Let’s wait and see.

    Hes a sellout no doubt. However as was eloquently said and bears restating he aint our savior never was never will be. The only answer is us. Everyday people who have values that dont include money or white jesus. Those of us who value humanity and not things.
