  1. The NY State Teachers Union is not to be trusted with their endorsement of Poteat, Miller, and McDowell. I suspect an incentive was provided in exchange for the endorsement.

BOYCOTT FOR BLACK LIVES T-SHIRT  BUY HERE

Colin Kaepernick has committed no crime other than spoke truth to power about the injustices to black people in the United States. For this, he should not be punished by blackballing him from the game of football. If people want change, we must Boycott! It’s up to us to protest but not just physically; with our money. If black lives don't matter to them, then our black dollars shouldn't either.
