Last night before the start of Super Bowl LIV, Beyonce and Jay-Z were spotted seated while the National Anthem was playing, and many people had their thoughts on it.
That includes Colin Kaepernick.
Jay-Z being seated for the Anthem was quite surprising for Kaepernick because it was just less than a year ago when the hip-hop mogul stated ‘we’ve moved past kneeling.’
“We’ve moved past kneeling, and I think it’s time to go into actionable items,” Jay-Z told reporters when asked about Roc Nation’s entertainment and community outreach partnership with the NFL.
I think it’s time to go into actionable items.”
“We all do different things. We all work differently for the same results. I don’t know what he’s doing and hopefully, he doesn’t knock what I’m doing.”
Kaepernick remembered those comments as well and posted about it on his Instagram story:
“Some of the ways he answered his questions, talking about we’re moving past kneeling, like he ever protested, Kenny Stills stated in August in response to Jay-Z. He’s not a NFL player. He’s never been on a knee. Choosing to speak for the people like he had spoken to the people. … I wonder how many common people that he knows or has spoken to. I wonder if he’s read my Facebook comments or my Instagram comments or some of the things people say to me. To say we’re moving past something, it didn’t seem very informed.”
“I felt like [Jay-Z] really discredited Colin and myself and the work that’s being done in our communities,” Stills added. “What’s fueling everything now is division. I wish it was handled in a different way.”
