‘Boycott NFL’ Truck with Football Hanging from Noose

This pickup truck was reportedly photographed somewhere in Central Florida.

UPDATE: OP was a liar. This photo was taken in PA.

The original poster censored the license plate, but from the blue bar on top it looks like it may have been issued in Pennsylvania.

The pickup truck features a hand-written “STAND UP FOR AMERICA” epitaph, with “BOYCOTT THE N.F.L.” below it, written in pieces of tape like serial killers do.

In the truck bed there’s a noose with a football hanging from it.

The hangman’s noose seems to be a not-so-subtle jab at Colin Kaepernick, a former American football quarterback known for his political activism regarding systematic racism against African-Americans and kneeling in protest during the National Anthem.

For many African Americans growing up in the South in the 19th and 20th centuries, the threat of lynching was commonplace. (PBS)

Michael Harriot wrote in one his articles on The Root, that “if one truly wants to understand structural racism, the current controversy in the NFL is a microcosm of how white supremacy manifests itself into policy and action.”

Finally, the day my mother has been waiting for her entire life has arrived. I am officially speechless.
