It seems all of Colin Kaepernick’s chances to be signed to an NFL team have disappeared after he decided to ditch his contract with the San Francisco 49ers. The left would like you to think that he is being ‘black’-listed, literally and metaphorically.
However, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy went into detail why the NFL teams are not jumping in line to higher the QB.
“It’s a lot more than just he’s not on the team because he doesn’t want to stand for the national anthem,” said McCoy. “That may have something to do with it, but I think also it has a lot to do with his play. I’m sure a lot of teams wouldn’t want him as their starting quarterback. That chaos that comes along with it, it’s a lot.”
Now another pro-footballer, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, is blasting the racism narrative too.
According to Lewis, the Ravens were going to sign the controversial quarterback until his girlfriend, radio host Ness Diab, decided to tweet a racist meme of Lewis on August 3; Diab compared the football legend to Samuel L. Jackson’s character in Django Unchained hugging owner Steve Bisciotti, compared to Leonardo Dicaprio’s character in the film.
“We were going to close the deal to sign him,” Lewis said on Inside the NFL. “Steve Bisciotti said, ‘I want to hear Colin Kaepernick speak to let me know that he wants to play football.'”
“And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day,” added the former NFL star.
“[Kaepernick’s] girl goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed,” Lewis explained. “Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: ‘How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'”
Lewis was then asked had Kaepernick’s girlfriend not posted the racist tweet, would he have been signed? To which he replied:
“Then he’s flying him to Baltimore. … I am sitting with all three of them and we are all having a conversation about bringing Colin Kaepernick in.”
Did you catch that? It is his racist girlfriend who is keeping him unemployed, not the NFL…
Two days before Diab sent out the racist meme, Lewis posted an emotional video on Twitter telling Kaepernick that he respects him and prays for him often.
“I wish you the best in life; I hope you chase whatever God got for you to chase. And once again, I applaud what you stood up for,” said Lewis.
“And if people really wanna help you, if they really wanna help you, man, they’ll pray for you, brother,” he said. “They will lead you the right way and stop encouraging you to be caught up in some of this nonsense.”

Her tweet was hardly called for. Especially towards a man who is trying to help him out. She bit the hand that was trying to feed Kaepernick… this couple is getting what they deserve.
