U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoeknelt during the national anthem Sunday night before the Seattle Reign’s game against theChicago Red Stars “in a little nod” to NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the anthem to protest racial injustice and minority oppression came to public notice when he remained seated on the bench before a preseason game against Green Bay. On Thursday night in San Diego, he and safety Eric Reid kneeled during the anthem before a game against the Chargers.
There must have been tens of people at that game. Fight the power, or something.
