A few months ago P. Diddy was in the running to buy the Carolina Panthers when they were on sale, not he wants nothing to do with the league.
In an interview with BigBoy TV, Diddy blasted the NFL, referring to it as a league which “oppresses black men.”
“I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men,” Diddy said. “I don’t want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can and can’t do.”
Speaking of his efforts to implement change in the sports arena, Diddy lamented, “I hope they do what they have to do to fix it, and I hope they re-engage my dream to want to do that.”
One change that the rap star had wanted to make was to end Colin Kaepernick’s forced retirement. After pursuing a plan to purchase the Panthers along with Golden State’s Steph Curry, Diddy wanted to sign Kaepernick to a contract.
Day after day, the meaning of the word “oppression” gets smaller and smaller.
