OAKLAND, CA — As the controversy grows over professional athletes choosing not to stand during the national anthem to protest what they see as police brutality and the targeting of minorities by police, one group of teens in California is joining the ranks of those protesting.

On Tuesday, the Oakland Unified School District honor band played the Star Spangled Banner before the Oakland Athletics game and most of the middle and high school students who make up the band chose to kneel during their performance to join the growing protest.
