We’re loving it! In another show of defiance to the orange a-hole in the White House and his racist supporters, Rico Lavelle, who sang the national anthem at the Falcons-Lions game in Detroit, took a knee as he sang the word “brave” and raised his fist at the song’s conclusion. Yes, he did.

As we reported earlier, all eyes are on the NFL today to see the reaction to President Donald Trump’s relentless attacks on the players and league over athletes kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against racial injustice.

Earlier, we told you about what the Steelers and Raiders did. Also, this morning, at a game in London between the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars, the two teams set the tone for the day by kneeling en masse and standing arm-in-arm in solidarity.

And now we have the national anthem guy making his statement. Are you listening orange a-hole?

As Verified Politics noter, “It’s obvious that the ‘controversy’ of taking a knee for the anthem – itself an act usually associated with reverence and respect – is nothing but a cover for the racism of whites who can’t stand to see black men taking a stand against police brutality and the systematic socioeconomic disenfranchisement of black Americans.”
