U.S STAR MEGAN RAPINOE KNELT DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM IN SUPPORT OF COLIN KAEPERNICK

Megan Rapinoe who plays as a midfielder for the U.S national football/soccer team knelt during the United States' national anthem on Sunday night before a soccer game in Chicago.

Rapinoe has however admitted the move was intentional. Indeed, it's in support for Colin Kaepernick who has sat during the U.S national anthem in protest against racial injustice in the U.S.



She said: 


"[It was] a nod to [Colin] Kaepernick." 
"I am not going to stand up and show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick said last week.

A bittered police union also threatened to stop staffing the 49ers football games if the team doesn't take action against Kaepernick. 

B*tches take action against your trigger-happy killer cops(staffs/pigs) that are killing innocent blacks and molesting black women... Funny thing, these shameless a-holes then claim they did these things because they fear for their lives... FOHBs!!!! #Laffs.


Shaun King, a prominent Black Lives Matter activist praised Rapinoe, who is Caucasian for kneeling.

He tweeted: 
"I actually think what [Rapinoe] did tonight was HUGE. A pivotal step. It shows this protest has not only crossed sports, but culture as well." 

To which Megan replied
It's nice to see stars, celebrities and all care...
Kudos Megan Rapinoe!
