In the letter obtained by TMZ, it states, “The National Black Police Organization is not in agreement with the NAPO on this matter. We strongly condemn their call for police officers and their families to boycott Nike and its products. Your inclusion of Mr. Kaepernick in your ads seem appropriate to us.”

The NBPA also acknowledged that the 1st amendment, referencing Colin’s silent protest against police brutality and social injustices, which is protected by the first amendment.
