San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has taken the sports world by storm with his kneeling during the national anthem protest. Now other players in the NFL, and WNBA has joined his protest for equal rights in America.
Now this trend has taken to the high school level as one of the players on Bethesda Chevy-Chase kneeled on the ground while the national anthem was playing at the B-CC versus Northwood game.
This isn’t the first time this has happened. Watkins Mill players protest the national anthem during the game against Damascus on Sept. 16. Other high school football teams around the country are trying to take stand for all the police brutality and racial inequality that America has experience.
What’s been going on for the past month shows the powerful effect sports has on the world.
