High School Players Lay Down in Protest During Anthem With Kaepernick in Attendance (Photos)
Some like myself will label this a powerful moment, while others will complain or try to distract away from the narrative with talks of a photo-op.
In a photo provided by former NFL player Kirk Morrison, Colin Kaepernick took a knee, while players from Castlemont High School in Oakland, CA laid on their backs with their hands up.

The display was an obvious protest of the murder of Terence Crutcher, who was shot in the back, while his hands were up.
