Earlier this week, sources told ESPN that Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome are in favor of signing Colin Kaepernick, but that the team's owner, Steve Bisciotti, opposes it, much to the chagrin of Ravens' fans.
Before Bisciotti reportedly came to this conclusion, his organization invited fans to voice their support of Kaepernick. But once fans did just that, the Ravens' headquarters refused to take comments in the former NFL quarterback's support, according to the civil rights organization the Color of Change, as reported by The Root.
That's precisely why the Color of Change launched "The Blackballing of Colin Kaepernick" website for fans to further let the Ravens and other NFL team owners know why they think it's wrong for the QB to be jobless after he knelt during the national anthem last season as a protest against racism and police brutality of unarmed Black men.
And Ravens fans and beyond are definitely blasting the team for ignoring their support of Kaepernick with these heated reactions.
And just like that, the floodgates opened with plenty of people letting it be known that they rock with Kaep.
More and more it's become obvious that Kaepernick is a victim of being blackballed for his stance with Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti being the latest offender.
In other words, the Ravens' headquarters might be able to drown out phone calls, but good luck doing the same on Twitter. You're gonna get this work!
More power to you, Kaep.
They walked into all of this.
