DAVID CAPLAN,Good Morning America
The Brooklyn Nets invited singer Justine skye, a native of the New York City borough, to sing the national anthem at Friday night’s home opener at Barclay’s Center — and to the surprise of spectators and Nets management, she took a knee at the end of her performance.
Reaction was a mix of cheers and boos, according to The Associated Press.
Skye, 22, appears to have taken a knee in solidarity with the Black Lives Mattermovement, based on an Instagram post about the evening, which included video of her performance and the hashtag #blacklivesmatter.

HWH Comment: Rich Black athletes locking arms prior to playing ball and during the singing of the National Anthem means they stand in solidarity with each other. Blacks against everybody else. Multi-millionaire players against everybody else.
Everybody already knows that. Blacks and multi-millionaries like to publicly disrespect others not their color and not in their income bracket. There’s no news here. The blacks stay perpetually angry as they stand in solidarity against the white man (and woman) (and child) and the rich flaunt their economic status per usual.
Stadium protests by rich people for the purpose of intimidating poor people to fight for social change continues. It’s always the same. The responsibility always falls on the backs of the poor. The rich genuflect, and expect the rest of the populace to run with their charity ball. How arrogant and demanding of poor people’s time and energy.
gen·u·flect: 1. lower one’s body briefly by bending one knee to the ground, typically in worship or as a sign of respect. “she genuflected and crossed herself” 2. show deference or servility. “politicians had to genuflect to the far left to advance their careers”
