Singer Kneels During National Anthem

by TV One Interns

November 3, 2016

So many artists and athletes have decided to break their silence and take a stand against police brutality among people of color.

We’ve seen everyone from Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem, to our very own, Sevyn Streeter wearing a “We Matter” jersey to a performance, and now recently– singer Denasia Lawrence kneeling during an NBA game!

Like those before her, Denasia made a very bold statement by taking a knee while singing “The Star-Spangled Banner”. Isn’t it liberating to see people take action for something they feel passionately about, even when others don’t agree? Every opportunity to take a stand (or a kneel) is one that you should take!

Sidenote: Let’s not forget how Denasia killed it! Job well done!

TELL US: Do you believe the recent actions taken by BLM activists have been effective?
