NFL to Cut Breast Cancer, Military Charity Funds to Pay for Proposed Social Justice Activism

The NFL announced this week they will pay $100 million over 7 years to social justice causes.

This comes after players continue their kneeling protest of the US National Anthem.

But players are reporting the league is taking money from breast cancer and the military to pay for the funding.

According to one of the athletes at the forefront of the protests, San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid [#35 in the photograph below], the windfall will come at the expense of the league’s planned financial support for breast cancer and military charities.

“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm conveyed to us—based on discussions that he had with the NFL — that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” Reid told Slate.

Salute to Service supports military personnel and raises awareness of their sacrifices.

“So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one,” he continued.

The player protests, sparked when former 49ers player Colin Kaepernick began protesting racial oppression in America, originated in the liberal city of San Francisco, which found itself in the news this week as a jury acquitted an illegal immigrant who was deported five times for the death of Kate Steinle.
