I ain’t with supporting—the NFL don’t really support black people. They’re not really supporting [Colin] Kaepernick. When I say they don’t support black people, they not supporting, like, Kaepernick said he was standing up for people who were being shot down—black and brown people. The NFL basically blackballed him. They’ve shown how they feel about us, for real. I respect the NFL players, but the owners, man, they ain’t shown nothing. I love Travis Scott, but I really don’t want us supporting none of that stuff.
