Is Jay Z right about the NFL?

Is Jay Z right about the NFL?

JAY-Z is hoping to “inspire change” with his new partnership with the NFL, and his first move is to put on a free concert and sell merch. The NFL and Roc Nation have announced that, in support of the social justice platform Inspire Change, Meghan Trainor, Meek Mill, Rapsody, and DJ Pharris will be performing a free concert at Grant Park in Chicago on Thursday, Sept. 5. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to social justice organisations, and parts of Trainor and Mill’s performances will be live streamed on NBC and NFL Network’s pregame coverage from 7:30 to 8:10 p.m. ET, before the first game of the season kicks off between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field.

Those are the key parts of the information, what isn’t clear is if the NFL should be working with one of our most prominent business man and artist. Black Twitter isn’t happy and so we wanted to talk about it.

Is Jay Z’s partnership with the NFL going to repair the relationship with the black community?
