Grammy-winning rapper T.I. wants some spotlight on Atlanta. The King of the South has shared his thoughts on the Peach State not leading the way with its own urban media platform.
Tip went to Instagram Wednesday (May 30) to take note at markets like Los Angeles and New York feeding off the content ATL generates.
This week, T.I. has kept busy sharing his issues with the NFL’s new national anthem policy.
Again… this is about equality!!! Holding America to the same standards of treatment no matter the color of your skin. Why does the NFL think so highly of Tebow when he knelt but thought so little of @kaepernick7 & others when they did it??? It’s this type of hypocrisy we face every day. This is why we protest… to receive the same consideration as the white citizens of this nation. That’s why it’s #USorELSE✊
A few days ago, various hip-hop artists shared their disgust in the NFL forcing players to stand during the national anthem.
This will definitely be a train wreck, or even worse, a plane wreck.https://t.co/uFJsxshfBO

Last Wednesday, the NFL announced his headline-generating new enforcement of making players salute the flag during the anthem.
NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer, it was announced Wednesday. The policy subjects teams to a fine if a player or any other team personnel do not show respect for the anthem. That includes any attempt to sit or kneel, as dozens of players have done during the past two seasons. Those teams will also have the option to fine any team personnel, including players, for the infraction. (ESPN)
