An entire German soccer team took a knee before a game, echoing the NFL anthem protests – Business Insider


A Berlin-based soccer team knelt before a game on Saturday.

Both players and officials of Hertha Berlin got down on one knee prior to the game “For a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore!” according to a tweet by the team.

“We are living in the 21st century, not the 18th century, but there are some people who haven’t developed their ideologies accordingly,” one of the the teams players, Sebastian Langkamp, told Sky Sports in an interview, according to the BBC. “If we can give them a bit of help in doing so, then that’s good.” (Business Insider)
