It's time to call out the hypocrisy of the NFL.


After Colin Kaepernick took a knee to protest racial injustice in America, NFL teams and their owners blacklisted Kaepernick, whom some suspect may never play again.

"Suppose you're considering a job applicant who seems to check all the right boxes. He has the skills you're looking for. He has accolades from experts in the field. It's obvious that he can be of enormous help to your company. Then, in the course of your background check, you learn that he is facing accusations of sexual assault. What do you do?
