This past week, president Donald Trump made negative allegations against the NFL, NBA and other sport leagues. With this it created a controversy staged protest through games this past Sunday.

It all started ever since the 2016 preseason game when 49ers quarter back Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the singing of the notional anthem, 1 year later players today are still kneeling along with whole teams.

Players all around the U.S have been kneeling to give attention to racial inequality and police brutality, after the multiple amounts of games of boycotting it President Donald Trump came out and said during  a rally in Alabama to protesters during the national anthem to “get that son of ***** off the field right now” ” out! he’s fired! ”

The next day after, at least one player from each team or entire teams showed a form of protest by either kneeling, locking arms or not showing up at all. For example the steelers, the steelers decided to stay in the locker rooms during the singing of the national anthem, only one former marine from the steeler line up showed up during the national anthem standing outside of the locker room entrance.

Even NBA players around the U.S have been making comments and statements

“Its pretty cool… I don’t like football much but they’re creating a movement from the bottom up.” Says Michael Vicencio current freshman.

NBA Super star LaBron James came out to say “…Because we know this is the greatest country in the world. It’s the land of the free. But we still have problems just like everybody else and when we have those problems, we have to figure out a way how we come together and be as great as we can be as a people. Because the people run this country. Not one individual. And damn sure not him.”

But with all this controversy comes consequences. The NBA came out to say that any player or staff apart of any team would be suspended and or fined.
