Black and white Miami Dolphins players and coach Brian Flores released a video on social media Thursday saying they’ll protest perceived racial injustice by remaining in their locker room during the national anthem.
The two-minute, 15-second video featured nearly 20 players trading stern rhymes about the nation’s social justice protest movement.
“If you speak up for change, then I shut up and play,” safety Bobby McCain said.
The NFL plans to play the national anthem and “Lift Every Voice and Sing” — the black national anthem — before every game this weekend, including the Dolphins’ opener Sunday at New England.
