Jemele Hill Wants To Know Why NFL Didn’t Include Colin Kaepernick In ‘Inspire Change’ Commercial

During the Super Bowl, the NFL aired an ad called “Inspire Change.

“While our season is over, our fight for equity is not. It takes all of us to create change and advance social justice,” the NFL wrote on their official website.

The commercial showed NFL players wearing the names of victims of police brutality on their helmets while LaDanian Tomlinson’s Hall of Fame speech played.

After the ad aired, writer and TV host Jemele Hill wondered on Twitter why Colin Kaepernick, the first NFL player to publicly take a stand against police brutality, wasn’t mentioned at all in the commercial.

“In that Inspire Change commercial, the NFL forgot to show the part where they blackballed Colin Kaepernick, have only 3 black NFL head coaches and no majority black ownership,” wrote Hill.

Good question that will likely never get answered.
