There’s oppression, there’s social injustice, and these kids live it.
Woodrow Wilson players and coaches
take a knee during national anthem.
Nearly every player and coach on the Woodrow Wilson high school football team kneeled for the playing of the national anthem on Saturday, following head coach Preston Brown’s decision to do so. After Brown told the team and his staff of his plans to protest his concerns over racial inequalities, Phil Anastasia of Philly.com reports, most of them chose to do the same. “I still love America. I still love our military,” Brown said, according to Philly.com. “But this was our way of saying that things have to change in our country. There’s oppression, there’s social injustice, and these kids live it.”
