Protests against racism, police brutality and President Trump continued to sweep the National Football League on Monday night. Members of the Arizona Cardinals locked arms, while members of the Dallas Cowboys took a knee before the anthem, along with their owner, billionaire Jerry Jones, who had previously tried to convince his players not to protest. NBA superstar LeBron James also celebrated the protests, while speaking Monday.

LeBron James: “I salute the NFL, the coaches, the players, the owners, the fans. Everyone that had anything or any association with the NFL yesterday was unbelievable. There was solidarity, and there was no—there was no divide. There was no divide, even from that guy that continues to try to divide us as people.”
