Jay Z On NFL Protests: "It's About Justice"

During Jay Z's 4:44 tour stop in Miami on Monday night. The rap Mogul paused his set to explain why Colin Kaepernick's NFL protest is not about the American flag but about justice and injustice.

"I want y’all to understand…when people are kneeling and putting their fists up and doing what they’re doing, it’s not about the flag. It’s about justice. It’s about injustice," he said. "And that’s not a black or a white thing. It’s a human issue. It’s a human issue. Everybody should feel the same way. If your 16-year-old child left the house and didn’t come back, everyone should be affected. That’s not a black or a white issue. That’s a human issue. That’s a young person who lost their life senselessly." 

JAY-Z has never been shy to express his support for KP with the most recent coming at the season premiere of Saturday Night Live back in October. His support to the black community includes donating over a million dollars to the Black Lives Matter movement, demanding justice for Meek Mill, and financial freedom.

Hov also used the opportunity to address rumors of his 4:44 tour flopping. In his own words, "I can't be stopped."
