Earlier this week, The Undefeated blogsite conducted a push poll on Colin Kaepernick disguised as a man-on-the-street interview, and it didn't go as well as the libs had hoped. The ESPN affiliate is backing Kaepernick's anti-American protests 100 percent and obviously hoped to use random people to support its cause.
An interviewer for The Undefeated asked people if Kaepernick is being blackballed and if they plan to boycott the NFL until he gets signed by a team. The results were underwhelming, as the interviewer only got one person to say the word blackball. The video was only two-and-a-half minutes long, indicative of how few people The Undefeated found to support its agenda. The interviewer likely expected to run up the score in liberal Washington, D.C., but that's not what happened." The one person who claimed blackballing said:
A lot of them brothers is with him but they afraid of their contracts and their salaries and they might get blackballed, too. But a lot of them pullin' with him, too. Go, Kap. I'm with ya.
Another Black man complained that Jay Cutler -- "one of the worst quarterbacks in the league" -- got signed by Miami, but Kaepernick is still unsigned. He called it "collusion."
One of the two white persons interviewed in the push poll said: "He's being discriminated against for what he did last year, whether you agree with it or not. Some of these other guys that they got playin', you know, aren't as good as him and haven't shown anything."
That's about as good as it got for The Undefeated. Here's the comment that hurt the most -- from an African-America man:
When he did get in and his stats were kind of inflated because he had to throw. So from that perspective I look at it him as a marginal backup quarterback. He's not a starting quarterback.

Not finding much support on the blackball charge, the interviewer shifted to the topic of boycotting the NFL. An African-American man said, "Well it might be goin' a little too far." An African-American woman added, "No. I mean they still get paid regardless."
One Black man said, "Stop spendin' money with the NFL."
An African-American man disagreed and delivered this zinger:
I have to say from a business perspective, no. I know brothers and sisters lookin' at me like I'm crazy, but from a business perspective that's gonna kill your business because anything anti-American in this time, it's not conducive to having a productive business.
An African-American man said, for him, a boycott would be conditional on whether it or not his favorite team, the Ravens, were involved. "I may not consider boycottin' this year. Maybe if it was more personal to my team, I may be a Raven's fan, I would be boycottin' for sure."
Another African-American man explained what Kaepernick did, but stopped short of advocating a boycott. "And he took a simple knee, and you know from the time when we were kids we took a strong knee in football. That man took a strong knee and respectful. He just askin' for a conversation, you know."
Once more we see the liberal ESPN social justice agenda at odds with the man on the street.
