Jay Z Schools National Anthem Protest Critics: “It’s Not About The Flag, It’s About Justice”

Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z is once again using the stage as a platform to talk about the NFL National Anthem protests. On Sunday night during his Miami tour stop Hov gave his two cents on why players are taking a knee saying it’s not about the flag.

“I want y’all to understand, when people are kneeling and putting their fists up in the air and doing what they’re doing, it’s not about the flag, it’s about justice. “It’s about injustice. And that’s not a black or white thing, it’s a human issue.”

Jay-Z previously through his support behind Colin Kaepernick, the NFL player considered the catalyst of the anthem protests, by dedicating a song to him at the Meadows Festival and wearing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s jersey during the rapper’s Saturday Night Live musical guest appearance.

On Sunday, after Kaepernick was named GQ‘s Citizen of the Year, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation signee J. Cole similarly praised the athlete to GQ. “Colin and I met years ago … I actually went to the first game he really played in, against the Jets. I just happened to be at that game. It hit another level for me the second I learned he was taking a knee,” Cole said.

“Suddenly something that he’s been doing blindly for his whole life — standing for the national anthem — now feels uncomfortable. Why? Because now it feels phony! It feels like, Man, how can I stand for this thing when this country is not holding itself true to the principles it says it stands for.”

Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation

Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!

Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.

The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.

Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
