In what has to be the dumbest statement yet from a defender of Colin Kaepernick, a Fox Sports pundit has made a suggestion on how the NFL could be forced to give the wiseass militant a job provided that enough pressure is brought to bear.
Skip Bayless believes that all black players should boycott week one of the upcoming NFL season as a gesture of solidarity behind the oppressed multi-millionaire.
Just get a load of this, especially the black dude who is lumping every black football fan in America in with Kaepernick – talk about sweeping generalizations.

Bayless can maybe be forgiven for his idiotic statement considering that he is the only white man among a panel of angry blacks demanding that Kaepernick be given an Affirmative Action appointment to some team due to his skin color.
It is truly something to behold watching these people as they trash the NFL owners, implying that they are akin to slave owners who are strictly enforcing discipline on their plantation.

According to Breitbart News “Skip Bayless: Black NFL Players Should Boycott First Game of Season to Get Kaepernick Signed”:
Tuesday on Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed,” co-host Skip Bayless suggested “it would have an impact” if black NFL players united to sit out the first game of the upcoming season to get free agent quarterback signed to a team.
“If the black players would unite, and say, ‘We will not play game one this year,’ I promise you, it would have an impact and would get something done,” Bayless predicted.
It is an idea that is soooo Kaepernick. Screw your teammates and your fans to make a political statement regardless of the consequences.
You do have to admit though that such a move would get the league’s attention, especially after the millions who haven’t already been sufficiently alienated by the national anthem protests and cop-hating retaliate by boycotting the following 17 weeks of the season.
