Many players in the NFL continued with their protests on Sunday continuing to defy President Trump and the owners who back him. However, there was one particular scene at the Baltimore Ravens Stadium that had people buzzing. Jamalh Bryant organized a gathering outside the Ravens stadium to take a knee during the national anthem in support of Colin Kaepernick.
Watch as the protesters take a knee at 4:40 in the video when the national anthem plays:

After the national anthem ended, the protesters gathered and prayed, saying:
“I pray that you’ll give liberty and justice for all. Make America great for the very first time. I pray that you will stop mass incarceration and unclog the prison pipeline. Give our young black and brown boys and opportunity to excel and do well. We stand on the shoulders of the ancestors who were killed and lynched. So that the next generation might, in fact, have access to democracy and live out the unfulfilled truths in the constitution.
I pray for every player that makes a knee in courage and for every person who will find strength to look in the face of white supremacy and racism so that we will be able to say to the next generation ‘We took a stand so you won’t have to take a bow.’ It’s in the name of an innocent black man named Jesus who was killed by the government that we pray and we find our strength, amen.”
According to the protestors, they took a knee to “stop police brutality and racism,” but one man in front stole the show.
