The stars of the NFL have proven just how powerful actions can be when they all joined together in unity across the league during the singing of the National Anthem.

The New England Patriots, Houston Texans, Chicago Bears, and Detroit Lions were just a few of the teams who either kneeled together or stood with linked arms.

The protest is in response to President Trump referring to athletes, like Colin Kaepernick, as a “son of a bitch” for their protest over racial injustice in America.

For the past few days Trump has been tweeting out his disdain for athletes kneeling during the National Anthem, and has called for fans to boycott games and for players to be fired.

The President even took aim at the Golden State Warriors and Steph Curry for not wanting to visit the White House after winning the NBA championship.

Many NFL teams, and even commish Roger Goodell, have issued statements supporting their player’s rights to exercise freedom of speech and political beliefs.
