“No justice, no peace!” is voiced by those still protesting against the social unrest in the world.
Protests for social justice continue in the NFL. Players still take a knee to show solidarity in the fight against police brutality and racial inequality.
Caleb Carroll sang his rendition of the Anthem while playing a baby grand piano. There were relatively few fans in attendance but that didn’t stop the players from representing their rights in an ExSan Francisco 49ers quarterback fashion by taking a knee during the Anthem.
Colin Kaepernick’s legacy continues, even though he is no longer on the football field. Although the head of the football league, Roger Goodell, has since publicly apologized for the huge mistake of pushing Kaepernick out of the NFL, he has not urged his rehiring.
Kaepernick led the 49ers to several winning seasons and a couple of championships. He took notice of the injustices that were permeating society across the nation and used his platform to shed light on the situation in a unique way. Other players joined his protest but were not punished the way Kaepernick was. But as the leader that he was and still is, Kaepernick continues to press on for change.
“No justice, no peace!” is voiced by those still protesting against the social unrest in the world. Large crowds still gather abroad and speak their minds loudly. However, those in the sports world found their silent unique way that speaks volumes.
Broadcast companies such as CBS capture these silent protests for the world to see, including those who sit in prison watching. They take notice of those out in the world who are kneeling down yet standing up for a cause that most in prison can relate to.
