Thank Athletes for Taking a Knee and Resisting Trump
Donald Trump has been very understanding of violent racists, but has the ugliest words for African American athletes who nonviolently protest a racist criminal justice system.
Trump's bombast has spurred even more athletes to speak out against racial injustice and against Trump.
We will deliver the petition with your signatures to the players union.
