Jay-Z has teamed up with the NFL in a partnership he believes will help propel the league into the future and ensure they understand importance of changing the pervasive culture of police of policing. Video of his meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and members of the media surfaced on Wednesday where Jay tries to explain why he’s past the Kaepernick kneeling…

But not everyone sees the future Jigga Man is focused on — moreover, they believe the NY rapper was just us as a pawn in the NFL’s attempt to cover up the blackballing of Colin. Karpernick’s friend and Carolina Panthers star Eric Reid said as much on Twitter.

And, Kaep’s longtime girlfriend and radio star Nessa Diab let Hova have it on IG.

We will never turn our backs on @kaepernick7 because your idols decided to work with the same organization that is actively keeping Colin unemployed all because he peacefully protested against social injustice in black and brown communities, specifically police brutality. So really, how can Jay-Z and the NFL utter social justice in their partnership while keeping Colin unemployed because of his social justice work? • • It’s typical for the NFL to buy different PR looks to cover up their dirt-that’s nothing new. But what is disgusting and disappointing is Jay-Z let them use him. Whether Jay-Z knew it or not (I don’t doubt his intelligence-so I would think he knew) he helped the NFL bury who he said is an iconic figure, Colin Kaepernick. • • Don’t tell me there’s a “master plan and wait for it” because the ONLY reason anything would ever change is because THE PEOPLE are loud and clear and won’t let the league buy their loyalty with their disingenuous moves. The people are letting the league and anyone who works with them know that they aren’t buying the bs. • • Thank you all so much for showing Colin so much support and love. I know for myself, I can’t thank y’all enough for loving my family. • #imwithkap #nokapnonfl ❤️❤️❤️ • • #RP: @kaepernick7: ‪You never turned your back on me or the people, even when the nfl tried to silence your voice & the movement. You’ve never flinched or wavered. I love you Brother! Let’s get it! @E_Reid35‬ ‪ And to the people – I see you, I hear you and I love you! Thank you for having my back!!!✊🏾‬ • • 🎥: @relrelrelrel @djtonedef

For his part, Colin spoke out and thanked those who have stayed by his side and doubled-down on their support.

Whose side are you on — kneeling or standing?
