White Navy Vet Wears BLM Shirt And Kneels During Anthem
DeSoto High School has made headlines following photos of both the football and girl’s volleyball teams kneeling during the National Anthem. One resident of the Texas community decided to kneel in protest with the students to show some support.
Al Woolum, a white navy vet, attended last Friday’s volleyball tournament after hearing about the protest and discovering how some Black athletes were being treated for taking a stand against police brutality in this country. Al said this about wearing a #BlackLivesMatter shirt at the game…
“The decision they made to kneel at their last game, they caught a lot of flak for that. I saw that on the news. I looked when their next game was, and I came to support them to let them know somebody in the white community cares.”
