Jay-Z announced that his company Roc Nation would be partnering with the NFL, and while he still supports protesting, he feels things are “past kneeling”. He says he hopes to work with the league to make substantial changes.
Colin Kaepernick responded via Twitter on Sunday night, saying they have not moved past any of their beliefs.
