After making former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick's life a living hell for his peaceful protests on the field -- the NFL has issued a statement saying that they are supporting the Black community -- and the Black Lives Matter movement.

"This is a time of self-reflection for all – the NFL is no exception. We stand with the black community because Black Lives Matter," the statement shared on the league's social media accounts reads.

"Through Inspire Change, the NFL, Players and our partners have supported programs and initiatives throughout the country to address systemic racism. We will continue using our platform to challenge the injustice around us," they continued.

"To date we have donated $44 million to support hundreds of worthy organizations. This year, we are committing an additional $20 million to these causes and we will accelerate efforts to highlight their critical work.

We know that we can and need to do more."

If only they'd listened to Kap.
