Is the NFL using Meek Mill to pander to millennial

Boycotting Rebel Alliance members is only one aspect of my plan to defeat the Rebel Alliance.Re-educating millions of millennials about the importance of traditional family values must become the second major facet in defeating this alliance. The Rebel Alliance members like Disney and the NFL have thrived because millennials as a group, think that the gay rights movement is the new civil rights movement, so they support companies like Disney that support the LGBT community. Let’s look at how the NFL is helping to trick young people into thinking that they really care about issues such as gay rights.

“Patriots owner Robert Kraft calls for criminal justice reform after visiting Meek Mill in prison” – Los Angeles Times, April 11, 2018

I’m about to share with you a scam that the Rebel Alliance is using, which is called the Meek Mill Scam. I will illustrate how Corporate America is currently using this con game to try and attract millennials to their brands. Lastly, I will show you how if this nation is not careful, the Meek Mill Scam will lead to the destruction of not only the Black family but also could cripple the Church’s ability to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

To show you how the Meek Mill Scam works, let’s look at the high incarceration rate among Blacks. Did you know that approximately 12–13% of the American population is Black, but they make up 35% of jail inmates (U.S. Department of Justice, 2014)? On one extreme, we can blame this problem on the criminal justice system. On the other extreme, some have blamed the deteriorating family structure that many Blacks are often raised in for the high amount of Blacks that end up in prison. Let’s look at how the NFL is using the high incarceration rate among Blacks to help build their brand.

Initially, I couldn’t understand why a group of billionaires would try to help rap star, Meek Mill, get out of prison when he got locked up for violating his parole. One of those billionaires who reached out to Meek Mill was New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft. Mr. Kraft visited Meek Mill in prison in April 2018. After visiting Meek Mill, Robert Kraft had this to say about this rapper from Philly, “Every time I see him, I just come away more impressed. He’s very intelligent. And makes it clear to me we have to do something with criminal justice reform.”

The Patriots have won five Super Bowl championships under Mr. Kraft’s leadership. You can trust his advice on how to build a winning football franchise. If Mr. Kraft doesn’t believe that both a man and a woman should be raising a child, I don’t think you can trust Mr. Kraft’s advice on parenting.

I believe one of the reasons Robert Kraft went to visit Meek Mill in prison is because he is trying to further the narrative that the high numbers of Blacks who end up in prison are too often victims of a racist criminal justice system. Keep in mind that, Robert Kraft, is the same individual who helped sponsor the Gay Bowl 17 and who has been an outspoken gay rights advocate. I believe people like Robert Kraft are smart enough to understand that you can’t successfully promote gay rights and campaign for more Black fathers in homes at the same time. This is one reason, Mr. Kraft wants you to believe that about 70% of Black kids who are growing up without a father in their homes has little to do with the fact that we see so many Blacks locked up behind bars.

“Meek Mill sat courtside at the Celtics game—next to Robert Kraft” – The Boston Globe, May 3, 2018

Whether you believe Meek Mill should be in prison is not my point. The question is, why do we see so many Blacks like Meek Mill being incarcerated, and what can we do to solve this problem? If you believe that solving this problem involves helping more Black kids grow up with fathers in their life, you might be asking yourself, “If Robert Kraft wants to help young men like Meek Mill, why is he such a big advocate of a lifestyle that causes a child to grow up without either a mother or father in their home?”

I believe Robert Kraft is using Meek Mill to continue to make Blacks feel like victims of racism as he panders to a generation of young people who support businesses that care about social justice issues (I (Kymo Dockett) do understand there are some serious problems with the criminal justice system that need to be fixed). Robert Kraft knows that criminal justice reform and gay rights are emerging as significant social justice issues that are important to the millennials. Meanwhile, the NFL doesn’t want groups like the NAACPBlack Lives Matter orUrban League to wake up and start noticing how the LGBT community is helping to push traditional family values out of this country and how this disproportionality is affecting Blacks.

The NFL understands that once someone has a victim’s mentality, they will start to play the blame game and will never do anything to better their chances of success. In this case, the NFL doesn’t mind Black people blaming institutionalized racism for their problems as long as they don’t blame the NFL for their part in helping to break up the traditional family. How is the NFL helping to break up the traditional family? They are helping to further a culture where it is becoming politically incorrect to suggest kids need both a mother and father.

What do you think would happen if Black people work towards building stronger families instead of blaming the criminal justice system for the growing number of Black people in prison? This would cost organizations like the NFL millions of dollars as they cater to the LGBT community. If Black people help solve their high incarceration rate problem by making sure more fathers are in their homes, this will prove that traditional marriage is way better for our society than gay marriage.

Even though people like Robert Kraft probably know that all children need a mother and father, the NFL and other companies will continue to accommodate the LGBT community because there are millions of dollars at stake if they don’t. You might be telling yourself, “There can’t be that many homosexuals who are watching football.” The group the NFL and other members of the Rebel Alliance want to court are millennials. Most major companies can’t efficiently court millennials if the millennials think someone’s business doesn’t agree with homosexuality.

Here are five facts about millennials that probably cause Robert Kraft to visit Meek Mill in prison:

  1. As a group, Millennials currently have the most spending power (There about 90 million millennials in America).
  2. At least, 74% of the people born after 1981 are classified as “millennials,” according to the Huffington Post, support gay marriage.
  3. Some 56 percent of millennials see the NFL as anti-gay.
  4. According to Google, 47% of consumers under the age of 24 are more likely to support a brand if they have seen an LGBT themed ad.
  5. From Nielsen data, in the 2016-17 regular season, NFL TV ratings among millennials declined 9 percent.

Why are there so many companies pushing Christian values out of America? If you say that Corporate America is doing all they can trying to pander to the millennials, you are correct. The typical millennial is so on board with the gay rights movement that many of them will stop supporting the NFL if they refuse to support the homosexual agenda. Therefore, this is one reason people like Robert Kraft has no problem fighting against religious liberty bills or making black kids feel like they don’t need a father raising them in their homes. If the NFL continues to be labeled as bigots by the LGBT community, Robert Kraft knows that millennials will find other things to do on their tablets or smartphones other than watch the NFL.

The NFL can’t afford to lose their millennial audience. Why? Most of the 18% of the TV audience the NFL lost during the 2016 and 2017 NFL season have come from Baby Boomers who don’t want to watch a group of Black athletes kneeling during the national anthem. The NFL must do all they can to recruit a younger audience if they’re going to reverse the trend of declining TV ratings, even if this means the New England Patriots owner goes to visit Meek Mill in prison and diminish the negative impact of the decline of the Black family.

“NFL Commissioner: We’re focused on adjusting for millennial audience” – CNBC, January 23, 2018

How do I know that greed is driving the NFL when it comes to helping someone like Meek Mill? If the NFL cared about Black people, they would have some program designed to promote fatherhood within the Black community. Instead of associating with rap artist likeMeek Mill, they would develop a partnership with organizations like Focus on the Family. The NFL will not promote fatherhood because this will offend the LGBT community. If the NFL offends the LGBT community, then they will lose a significant piece of their millennial audience.

So, let’s do a quick recap. Because the NFL is so afraid of losing millennials, they don’t care if Christians have the right to free speech. If they did care about Christians having the right to practice their religion, they would not be fighting against religious liberty bills. I already made the point that the NFL doesn’t care anything about Black people. If they did, they would be promoting the importance of traditional family values.

The NFL doesn’t care about the LGBT community either. They are just using them to attract millennials. So, who do they care about? You guess it. The NFL only cares about the NFL. Meek Mill will not be the last star the NFL will try to use to make themselves look good in front of the millennials.

The NFL must do all they can to recruit a younger audience if they’re going to reverse the trend of declining TV ratings, even if this means the New England Patriots owner goes to visit Meek Mill in prison and diminish the negative impact of the decline of the Black family.

Don’t be fooled by the NFL’s elaborate scam. When Robert Kraft visited Meek Mill in prison, that was a small part of a larger scheme designed to help Robert Kraft to win both on and off the field. Not only is Mr. Kraft about to help the NFL pull off one of the biggest con jobs millennials has ever fallen for, but he is going to do this at the expense of the Black community.

Maybe the NFL knows that millennials don’t recognize that in supporting gay rights, they are pushing Black people into a deeper ditch as a community. Guess what, it is the Church’s job to expose this con game. Please know that if we boycott companies like Disney, but we don’t educate millennials about the importance of traditional family values over the next five years, we will probably end up wasting our time.

Millennials, you have the power to influence Corporate America in whatever agenda they help push. Please, use your power wisely. At the end of your reign, there will be winners and losers. I pray one of those winners would be the Black community. Millennials, we are about to see whether Black lives matter or if you are going to fall for the Meek Mill Scam.
