The following article, NFL’s Houston Texans Refuse to Take the Field Until National Anthem Is Finished Playing, was first published on Flag And Cross.
The NFL kicked off its 2020-21 season on Thursday, as the Houston Texans took on the Super Bowl champion Chiefs in Kansas City. As you might expect, the highly-paid athletes decided to take a stand against “social injustice.”
Some players locked arms in unison, while at least one Chiefs player took a knee and raised the black pride fist during the national anthem.
There’s a high likelihood we’ll see more of these antics when the other 30 teams play on Sunday and Monday.
The Houston Texans could not decide, as a team, how to handle the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner and the “Black National Anthem.” Therefore, they decided as a team to remain in the locker room. The Chiefs, however, elected to stay and stood arm-in-arm during the playing of both songs.
