Finally, while they said they could not leave the intersection to march with the demonstrators, the men knelt down with them.
Most recently, the “Kneel Knees” campaign has become synonymous with NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand against colored people during the US national anthem in the face of police brutality.

The video was retweeted by Get Out director Jordan Peele with the title “Your move, Bone Spurs”.
The pejorative refers to the infamous avoidance of US President Donald Trump’s active service in the Vietnam War due to an alleged foot problem.
The nationwide protests are in response to the murder of Minneapolis man George Floyd last month.
In the incident with Floyd on May 25, arrest officials said he agreed with the description of a suspect of counterfeiting and then opposed them when they detained him. In an accompanying clip, Chauvin was seen putting his knee on Floyd’s neck when Floyd asked him to ease up.
“Please, please, please, I can’t breathe … please, man … my stomach hurts, my neck hurts, everything hurts … I can’t breathe,” said the African American, who later died in Police detention in a nearby hospital.
Chauvin is charged with the third degree murder and second degree manslaughter in connection with the incident.

The state of Minnesota and the Department of Human Rights in Minnesota filed a human rights complaint against the Minneapolis Department Department on Tuesday.
“We know there are deep-seated problems,” said Governor Tim Walz. “I know because we saw George Floyd’s life and humanity casually wiped out. We also saw the community’s response.
“You expected nothing to happen because nothing happened so often.”
In the wake of the shocking sequence of events, riots broke out in Minnesota that spread nationally and internationally. Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets, even in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The events have drawn parallels to the 1992 Los Angeles riots that broke out after four policemen were acquitted of their beatings against Rodney King, who was captured with a video camera. In the five days of the unrest, more than 60 people died, more than 2,000 were injured, and damage to property destroyed exceeded $ 1 billion.
