The NFL's backtracking apology forgot one thing: Colin Kaepernick.

Say his name, Roger Goodell.

The NFL would like to apologize for ignoring players who have protested police violence and racial inequality since 2016. There’s just one problem: Colin Kaepernick is still being erased.

“We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a video statement released Friday night. “We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier, and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest.”
