Leah Tysse Takes Knee While Singing National Anthem At Kings Game

Sacramento Kings singer Leah Tysse took a stance (or knee) during the National Anthem last night that has made headlines throughout the nation. The white Bay Area singer explained why she decided to follow in the steps of 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and other athletes.

Watch the video below:

Leah explains via Facebook: “Taking a knee felt like the most patriotic thing I could do. I cannot idly stand by as black people are unlawfully profiled, harassed and killed by our law enforcement over and over without a drop of accountability.”
