NBA legend, Kobe Bryant says he would have taken part in the National Anthem protest.
Bryant commended Colin Kaepernick for starting the trend in the NFL. Kobe didn't mention anything about where he would have stood in the #MeToo movement however.
washingtonexaminer.com reports: NBA legend Kobe Bryant would have joined athlete demonstrations during the national anthem to highlight racial injustice if he were still playing basketball.
“I would have participated in it, for sure," Bryant told the Undefeated Sunday when asked about player protests prompted by former NFL San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick, protests which later gained further traction when criticized by President Trump.
“I'm sure I would have gotten some flak for it. That's fine. I think with Colin's message, it was a very simple one. It was police brutality needs to stop. We need to take a look at that,” the former Los Angeles Laker shooting guard continued.

Just when you think liberals couldn't get any more weird, a school in Utah is forcing girls to say "yes" when asked to dance at Valentine's Day party.
When Natalie Richard’s sixth-grade daughter told her she couldn’t say “no” if a boy asked her to dance at Kanesville Elementary’s Valentine’s Day dance, she didn’t believe it at first.
“Oh no, no honey," Richard said of her reply. "You guys are misunderstanding again. That’s not how it is."
However, after speaking to her daughter’s teacher, she realized the statement was accurate.
“The teacher said she can’t. She has to say yes. She has to accept and I said, 'Excuse me,” Richard tells Fox 13.
Richard took her concerns to the school principal.
“He basically just said they’ve had this dance set up this way for a long time and they’ve never had any concern before,” she said of his response.
Lane Findlay with the Weber School District confirms it’s a rule, but he said it’s meant to teach students how to be inclusive.
“Please be respectful, be polite," Findlay said. "We want to promote kindness, and so we want you to say yes when someone asks you to dance."
