NAACP Calls For NFL Boycott Over Kaepernick

Just in time for football season, the NAACP is calling for a boycott of the NFL because controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick is still a free agent.

CBS News reports:

Gerald Griggs, the vice president of the NAACP’s Atlanta chapter, said this week that his group is planning a boycott of all things NFL and will continue to boycott the league as long as Kaepernick remains a free agent.
“There will be no football in the state of Georgia if Colin Kaepernick is not on a training camp roster and given an opportunity to pursue his career,” Griggs recently told Fox 5 in Atlanta. “This is not a simple request. This is a statement. This is a demand.”

The story adds the NAACP is planning a protest outside the Atlanta Falcons stadium for the teams first home game.
