    What is he doing about the "cause"?

All changing the place of the workout did was weed out which teams were actually interested in signing him, they know he didn't have a chance signing with most of the teams.
    Then why did he agree to it in the first place? Obvious answer -- he wanted the publicity of being able to pull out and play the "victim" card. He's a phony.

    You're right that he doesn't need the NFL workout -- he is free to go work out with any team at any time. Why doesn't he do that? I think you're too smart to not see through his shenanigans.

    Think again. Racism is a strong emotion.

    I hate to say it but the guy didn't act like he actually wants to work in the NFL again. You don't come to a workout wearing a shirt saying, " Kunta Kente" on it. Which turned scouts off right there.

    Then tell Goodall and owners to stop running? Running from what? I listened to his tone and it was a total turn off. I think he's happy playing a Martyr at this point. If he thinks of himself as such, then he's delusional.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (An 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    My official proclamation: WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. So why delay the inevitable?

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    It's not so much his shenanigans; it's the league trying to also clean up this image just ahead of the collective bargaining agreement discussions that are right around the corner. This was still a bit of a black cloud so the league can now say, " We set him up with a workout for the teams but he flip flopped it all around to a circus". Which he did. When you want to work for someone, you don't wear a shirt that refers to you as a slave and basically implying the owners are slave masters. That doesn't indear you to the owners.

    Racism is bias based on the idea of the SUPERIORITY of one race over another.
    It is more than bias.

    How specifically has Kaepernick done that?



    Family pick with the beloved parents who raised him.

    That’s a totally different topic from the “cause” you asked about.

    BTW whatever, try hearing his stories about his parents having to defend him against racial taunts they heard because people did not know he was their son.
    His mom had to tell people off at baseball games when he was a kid because of their comments.

    Adopted, loved dearly by his family but constantly reminded he was "different" in his mostly white community.
    That stuff shapes a kid, you have no idea why he is so obsessed with issues of racial inequities.

    Dude might be oversensitive in the eyes of many. Can you not see how that might happen?

    And YOU accuse HIM of racism?

    DUDE IS BI-RACIAL.
