Woman becomes first NFL cheerleader to take a knee during national anthem A cheerleader for the San Francisco 49ers’ has knelt during the US national anthem, in an apparent mirror of the protest movement begun by the quarterback Colin Kaepernick to raise awareness about racism and police brutality. The woman appeared to take a knee before the team’s game against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, according to a widely circulated photo posted on Twitter and reports. I dont know what to say really. At a time when the US faces its ultimate threat from a migrant train of Honduran women and children we see this. The President has enough on his plate without having to abuse teenage cheerleaders. Now is the time for all Americans to come together and support White America. None of this divisive rap please.
