“You Have The Power To Deny Them Our Attention” — J. Cole Speaks On #TakeAKnee / Colin Kaepernick Protest
J. Cole took to Twitter to share some advice on how to participate in this protest against racism, bigotry and Trump in America.
The rapper best known as J. Cole has been an outspoken advocate for embattled football player, Colin Kaepernick, yet hasn’t really shared his thoughts on anything that’s been going on since Sept. 1.
Well, that is until today.
The Roc Nation franchise player went on a bit of a mini-rant this afternoon in response to President Donald Drumpf’s comments about Kaepernick and other NFL players who refuse to stand for America’s national anthem. Drumpf also had some not-so-kind words for two-time NBA champion, Stephen Curry, that raised the ire from everyone such as LeBron James to coach Steve Kerr to NBA Player’s Association president Chris Paul
Hell, even Stevie Wonder dropped down to both knees in solidarity against racism, bigotry and sexism (Drumpf’s campaign slogan).
Cole was especially incensed that despite the sacrifice of Colin Kaepernick, people were still making this an issue about the national anthem and not about the police brutality, death, racism and injustices people of color have been facing for centuries. Taking to his personal Twitter page, the 4 Your Eyez Only creator broke down his thoughts on the matter and offered some much-needed advice as to how we can come together and make a significant impact on not just the sports world, but the whole world in general.
It is sound advice and we feel that it is best to allow the chart-topping, award-winning MC to do his thing unfiltered and uninterrupted. So, peep what all J. Cole had to say about the topic on the following page below.
