Kaepernick began sitting, then kneeling during the National Anthem in 2016, played his last game on January 1, 2017, and has yet to be signed by a team.
Reid said Goodell is using Kaepernick in the video to “legitimize their disingenuous PR while simultaneously perpetuating systemic oppression, that the video he’s using fights against, by continuing to rob Colin of his career.”
“It’s diabolical,” Reid said.
“While the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about Black Life, they are still actively blackballing Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) for fighting for the Black community,” Kaepernick tweeted. “Eric set 2 franchise records last year, and is one of the best defensive players in the league.”
