“The U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) wore Black Lives Matter Jackets to their international friendly match against the Netherlands on Friday,” according to Breitbart.
“In a message posted before the game, USWNT star Alex Morgan said the team chose to wear the jackets as a way to “affirm human decency,” and as a stand against “racial injustice and police brutality.”…
“USWNT members took a knee before the start of the game, as they have at many international friendly’s and tournaments over the years.
“The team gained notoriety during the 2019 Women’s World Cup for frequent and profane statements against President Trump. Perhaps most outspoken of the USWNT stars was co-captain and leading scorer Megan Rapinoe, who said she was not going to the f*ck*ng White House” to visit President Trump if the USWNT won the tournament. She also once said that “We have a white nationalist – I think – in the White House.”
Here is a tweet from one of the players, Alex Morgan. Please share your thoughts about the U.S. Women’s National Team wearing Black Lives Matter Jackets to a match on foreign soil.
