Broncos LB Brandon Marshall kneels during national anthem
Saturday September 10th, 2016

Following in the footsteps of Colin Kaepernick, a player for Indiana State took a knee during the national anthem before Saturday’s game against Minnesota. 

Several other athletes have joined Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against inequality in American. Soccer player Megan Rapinoe kneeled before an NWSL match last week and Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall did the same before Thursday’s NFL season opener

The practice has also spread to high school games

At least one Sycamores player kneeled during Saturday’s anthem.
