Kennesaw State cheerleaders take a knee to continue protest

KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) Four Kennesaw State cheerleaders took a knee in the tunnel during the national anthem at the Gardner-Webb-Kennesaw State game on Saturday night.

The cheerleaders first knelt during the national anthem at a Sept. 30 football game to protest racial inequality and police brutality.

Twice during the past week there were protests on campus in support of the cheerleaders. But on game night at Fifth Third Bank Stadium there were no other prominent signs of organized protest or demonstration other than a small group of fans who gathered in a circle on the concourse to take a knee. Most spectators stood during the anthem, some fans around the stadium remained seated and others stood with a raised fist.
