Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick encouraged players participating in protests during the national anthem to “continue to fight” just weeks before the start of the NFL season.

The message from Kaepernick comes just days after the NFL announced a partnership with rapper Jay-Z, which includes a social justice initiative. Jay-Z said at the press conference that the country had “moved passed kneeling.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Kaepernick’s allies, including his girlfriend Nessa, accused the rapper of selling out.

Kaepernick tweeted: “My Brothers @E_Reid35 @KSTiLLS @iThinkIsee12 continue to fight for the people, even in the face of death threats. They have never moved past the people and continue to put their beliefs into action. Stay strong Brothers!!!

He was referring to Eric Reid (Carolina Panthers), Kenny Stills (Miami Dolphins), and Albert Wilson (Miami Dolphins).

Reid said Jay-Z is “despicable” for signing the NFL deal.
