‘Pastor’ Holds Black Power Kaepernick Protest Outside Stadium at RAVENS Game
October 16, 2017
More than 100 people staged a silent protest outside M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore before the start of Sunday’s Ravens game, standing with their fists raised, then kneeling as the national anthem played inside.
The Rev. Jamal H. Bryant and Empowerment Temple AME Church organized the demonstration. He said the goal was to kneel in solidarity with former San Francisco 49ersquarterback Colin Kaepernick, who drew ire for refusing to stand for the anthem last year to protest the oppression of minorities in the U.S.
