In case you don't think racism is alive and well today:
Michael Rose-Ivey, who plays football for Nebraska, was surprised at the tenor of responses he received after he and two other players took a knee during the National Anthem.

He said, ""Some believed DaiShon, Mohamed and myself should be kicked off the team or suspended, while some said we deserved to be lynched or shot just like the other black people that have died recently," the Cornhusker remarked as he choked up. "Another believed that since we didn't want to stand for the anthem, we should be hung before the anthem for the next game."

A prime example of why they took a knee in the first place.
