Mike Evans kneels during anthem to protest Trump: ‘Something’s not right’ (Shutdown Corner)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans struck a now-familiar pose before his game on Sunday, kneeling in a form of protest during the pregame national anthem. Evans made clear after the game that he was specifically protesting Trump, and would continue to kneel “as long as he’s the president-elect.” Trump’s inauguration is scheduled for Jan. 20, 2017. Protests begun earlier this season by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and emulated across the league—though until Sunday, not in Tampa Bay—focused on the issue of police violence and equality for minorities.
