CIVIL RIGHTS: “Arian Foster Says National Anthem is a ‘Racist Song'” / VICE News Tonight / Jay Caspian Kang ☮

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt again yesterday as the national anthem played before his team faced off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, continuing his protest against injustices toward minorities and inspiring others to follow.

Miami Dolphins running back Arian Foster began kneeling during the pregame anthem on Sept. 11 and has been a vocal supporter of Kaepernick ever since. “I don’t even think the song should be our national anthem, because it’s a racist song, if you look at the other verses of it,” he told VICE News correspondent Jay Caspian Kang.

Even some high school football players have participated in the protest. “I think it’s a beautiful thing,” Foster said.

The movement shows no signs of slowing down, as similar protests have recently been made by cheerleaders, marching bands, and basketball teams. “What would have to happen for me to stand for the national anthem?” Foster asked himself. “Honestly, man, I’m not sure I will stand again.”

CHRISTIAN BIGOTRY: “Transgender Bathroom Bigotry is a Civil Rights Issue” ☮

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) talks with Bill Press about the lawsuits from 12 states over President Obama’s transgender bathroom directive. He compares what LGBT people are facing today to the civil rights injustices of the 1950s and 1960s. “Right now LGBT Americans are facing the people on the other side of this bridge, in that schoolhouse door, as we march towards equality.”
