The Colin Kaepernick revolution is now spreading from football into sports no one even watches.
As reported by Mediaite, the entire roster for the WNBA team "Indiana Fever" got a little bit of the Kaepernick fever and "took a knee during the National Anthem prior to Wednesday night’s game against the Phoenix Mercury."
Since nobody beyond even the most ardent of feminists religiously watches the WNBA, the story would be of absolutely no significance if not for the fact it marks the "first time an entire professional team has kneeled for the National Anthem" in this season of BLM protests.
According to ESPN, Indiana Fever head coach Stephanie White did not participate in the kneel, though she did express approval.
"I’m proud of y’all for doing that together, being in that together," White said to her team. "That’s big. It’s bigger than basketball, right?"
The game marked a career end for Tamika Catchings, who is "widely considered one of the greatest players in the WNBA’s 20-year history." She was reportedly proud to end her fruitful career by showing absolutely zero gratitude to the flag of the country that enabled her success.
"(The gesture) was something that was very impromptu, but I am very proud of our team — as people — to be able to stand together for something we believed in," Catchings said.
