Hip-Hop has A Knee In the NFL the New National Anthem of the Policy

For the culture.

NFL owners unanimously approved a new policy regarding the players behavior during the National Anthem at the beginning of this week.

According to ESPN, the policy states that if players or any other team personnel walk down to the National Anthem, they will be fined. However, they have the option of staying in the locker room without penalty. The NFL will consider any attempt to sit or kneel during the hymn does not show respect.

The former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick ignited a movement when she chose to kneel during the hymn in August of 2016.

"I'm going to continue to stand with the people who are being oppressed," Kaepernick told the media. "For me, this is something that has to change. When there is a significant change and I feel that the flag represents what it is supposed to represent, and this country is the one that represents the people the way they are supposed to, I'll stand."

Over the past two seasons, hundreds of players kneeled down upon his knees to protest against racial inequality and police brutality.

This week the new policy angered the people through social media platforms. Run The Jewels' El-P hit Twitter on Thursday (May 24), to reveal the NFL offered him and his RTJ counterpart Killer Mike "zero dollars" to play "the Legend" during the Super Bowl LII.

The NFL has been garbage. they asked for the rights to play the legend tells that in the stadium during the superbowl. we said no because fuck it. operate as an essential public utility. they are not. they have gone with the top of a channel. fuuuuuuck.

and just in case anyone is wondering how much the nfl wanted to pay us for the use according to the legend, which would be equal to zero dollars and the strong suggestion that we take the opportunity to enrich a private, racist, and for the benefit of the company masquerading as a nonprofit. blow me.
