USA: Hundreds take a knee in Minneapolis ahead of Super Bowl

Hundreds of protesters ‘took a knee’ in front of the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis to demonstrate against police brutality, systemic racism and corporate greed, amongst other things, before the Super Bowl on Sunday. The protest was organised by over 20 groups and was named the ‘Super Bowl Anti-Racist, Anti-Corporate Rally.’ The “taking a knee” gesture started over a year ago, when former San... Еще Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to kneel instead of stand during the pre-game national anthem, in a passive form of protest against alleged police brutality of African-Americans. Since then, many athletes have adopted this protest during sports events. US President Donald Trump said he would like to see kneeling players fired during a rally in Alabama last September. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump said.
