Diddy’s dream to own an NFL team one day has been shattered all because of one weak policy promoted by the league. Diddy expressed his discernment with the NFL’s most recent policy change in regards to the national anthem.
Read on to see what Diddy is saying about the NFL and the national anthem…
CelebNMusic247.com has learned via Diddy, that he finds the act to be another format of oppression plagued upon the Black man.
Last month, the league released an official statement outlining the new rule, which states that players are no longer required to be present on the field during the national anthem, but shall a player be present they are required to stand.
If an NFL player refuses to stand for the anthem, then they need to sit or kneel in the locker room or the team will be subject to a fine and “appropriate discipline” by the commissioner.
Diddy weighed in saying:
I really wanted to go in there and be a part of the NFL, and try and be a positive change. This last move… I don’t even want to own an NFL team no more. I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men,” he said. “I don’t want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can and can’t do.
Last October, he took to Twitter to express his desire to take over the entire NFL league and even immediately placed a demand for its bid. This occurred very shortly after the NFL revealed their plan on reinforcing a rule upon players to stand up for the anthem.
Forward to now, the Bad Boy mogul didn’t find the present NFL a fit place for players to freely be themselves in lieu with siding with their own people. He points out this is in direct reference to the Black men of the NFL.
At one point, Combs was highly interested in purchasing the Carolina Panthers from Jerry Richardson, but these days, the business mastermind wants absolutely no parts in this arena of sports unless things go into reverse since the league has placed an unruly restriction upon players.
Diddy owns a core concern about the condition of the NFL due to the reality that a high percentage of players are African-American.
Did you know that approximately 68% of players are African-American, this according to NFL surveys?
This statistic remains grand, yet it is not a position of authority in the league. Maybe the answer to the problem is more black-owned teams? Diddy’s desire to become an owner of the franchise is not just another business endeavor, but a foreseen historical act. The NFL has never seen the light of day for a black franchise owner.
The hip-hop mogul and judge of The Four continued in conclusion of his decision:
To all my brother that are out there, I got Y’all back. My feelings are hurt. Because I’m such an NFL fan, and I hope they do what they have to do to fix it, and I hope they re-engage my dream to want to do that.
Shall the Hip-Hop mogul take on the challenge, he most likely would have duplicated and implemented a civil Black mentality sprinkled with the logic that would accommodate the league’s player majority.
