Entire WNBA Team Kneeled During National Anthem

Playing for their season in an elimination game against the Phoenix Mercury in the first round of the WNBA playoffs on Wednesday, the Indiana Fever collectively took a knee and linked arms during the national anthem in Indianapolis. Two Mercury players joined them. The Fever join a growing group of athletes (including NFL and NBA players), state senators, and an ESPN analyst in support of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest of the national anthem and racial injustice.
