For over a month, athletes across the U.S. have been sitting and kneeling during "The Star Spangled Banner" in a nod to footballer Colin Kaepernick's well-documented protest against police brutality.

Now, cheerleaders are joining in on the action.

The Howard University Cheerleaders knelt while the National Anthem blasted from speakers during the AT&T Nation's Football Classic at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. Saturday afternoon, CNN reported.

Howard is one of the country's few historically black universities, with notable alums such as New York City's first African-American mayor, David Dinkins, and Congressman Elijah Cummings.

If a WNBA team kneels during the National Anthem, does anyone notice? Thank you all of you useful idiots kneeling, and/or fists raised. You are giving us what we want.

President Trump!

One of the saddest parts of this is that they truly believe they are being targeted in this manner (e.g. police brutality) and that these are the biggest problems they face. The biggest problems they face are the result of being lied to and used politically by people who don't really care about anything but their vote. We've had 8 years of Obama, but nothing has been done to help the people in Chicago who live in neighborhoods where it's terrifying to walk down the street. They've been used by an entertainment industry that makes literally billions propagating a very negative type of black ‘culture’ that hurts black youth. The list is long.

These people are confused. Kneeling is not a traditional sign of defiance but rather the exact opposite.

If the were truly brave and committed, they would turn to the music and/or flag and give it the one finger salute.

And the divide that was a chasm has become a gulf.

Thanks for your leadership Obammy.

Why is bigotry a prideful trait in blacks?

It is ironic that bigotry itself is color blind.
