Beyoncé‘s mom, Tina Knowles, is standing with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his protest against systematic racism in the U.S.
Ms. Knowles took to Instagram to voice her support for Kaepernick, who refused to honor the America flag during the national anthem before a game.
Kaepernick has received backlash from some fans, who consider the protest an affront to patriotism.
“I’d like to know if they are as outraged by all the senseless killing of minorities, all of the racial injustices in America, that people are okay with. We turn a blind eye to it and as long as it is not affecting us personally we avoid thinking, discussing, protesting, and doing a thing about it.”
