Week 6 of the Negro Felon League season has come and gone and the end result was more half empty stadiums.
Numerous photos showing poor stadium attendance were seen all over social media. Years ago these stadiums would have been packed full of fans. Now they are barely able to fill half the seats.
Here’s a few of them.

You know who isn't winning? The NFL. This was kickoff time in Jacksonville. Look at those empty seats! pic.twitter.com/fd7CwOuHk4

There were a few items of interest pertaining to the Jacksonville Jaguars game. Not only did it have the smallest home attendance for a game since 2009, but somebody flew a plane over the stadium with a banner calling on people to boycott the team and the league.
In California, someone paid for an electronic billboard encouraging people to boycott the NFL.
And it gets better.
There is actually a group of Blacks in Philadelphia protesting the NFL because Colin Kaepernick hasn’t been signed by a team!
This NFL is in trouble. They’ve tried to play the middle ground on this national anthem issue and have pissed off both sides. They’ve angered the majority White fan base for not forcing their million dollar monkeys to stand while it’s played. They’ve also pissed off a bunch of Blacks for simply asking but not requiring the players to stand. This request has apparently been perceived as institutional racism by these Blacks.
And to think, all that was required for this situation to go nuclear was for Donald Trump to use the term “son of a bitch” to describe the players who weren’t standing for the national anthem. The cultural significance of what is happening cannot be overemphasized enough. As more and more White people tune out of these breads and circuses our people will be in a better place to focus on issues of real significance.
