In a show of defiance against Donald Trump and his racist supporters that will sure to send them into a conniption of rage, the singer of the national anthem at the Falcons-Lions game in Detroit took a knee and raised his fist as he sang the final notes.

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.
For the singer itself to take a knee is a potent symbol of what real patriotism looks like.
