NFL Players Protest Racism & Police Brutality by Kneeling During National Anthem

HeadlineSep 10, 2018

In more sports news, NFL players continued to protest during the national anthem Sunday to call attention to police brutality and racism. Among the players to protest were Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, who knelt during the anthem, and Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn, who raised his fist during the anthem. Colin Kaepernick, who first sparked the league-wide protests, tweeted his support for Stills and Wilson, writing, “My Brothers continue to show their unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed! They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. Their courage will move the world forward! Love is at the root of our resistance!”
