Colin Kaepernick started the massive and enraging anti-anthem trend not in the NFL alone, but in other sports communities and organizations as well. As reports suggest, an individual group of delusional African-American cheerleaders at Kennesaw State University have recently knelt prior to a football game at the premises.
The media jumped in revolt at the move, with the school planning on removing the cheerleaders for their next game Saturday.
The cheerleading team, known as the “Kennesaw Five,” will not be present at their team’s game but will kneel in the tunnel of the 8,300-seat Fifth Third Bank Stadium instead. The reasons are, once more, the everlasting issue of racism and police brutality, that only some seem to find existing. And by some, I mean liberals.
Cheerleader Shlondra Young said everything is kept under the radar for the time being:
“I feel as though it was an attempt to silence us,” she said. “But even though they are moving us, we will not be silenced.”
University spokeswoman Tammy DeMel issued a statement saying the school’s sports department will gather “to determine how best to enhance the game-day atmosphere,” and while she did not mention the anthem, she noted “other changes,” to include “painting the KS logo at midfield for the first time, processes to help expedite fan entry, and more loud speakers by the student section.”
The story broke when Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren, expressed his disagreement with the school’s policies to allow such protests to be happening in the first place. Warren spoke to coach Olens and noted: “that this will not happen again.”

“Cobb County has lost sons and daughters at home and on foreign lands while protecting America,” the sheriff said.
“And to witness these ill-informed students acting this way clearly tells me KSU needs to get busy educating these students on more than just passing their classes,” Warren continued. “They need to learn all that the flag truly represents.”
