Chris Brown Chooses To Sit During The Singing Of The National Anthem On 9/11 (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick ignited a national discussion when he made the decision to not stand during the playing of the national anthem in protest against racism and police brutality in America.

Several other athletes joined Kaepernick’s form of protesting by kneeling or raising a fist as “The Star-Spangled Banner” played before sporting events.

In addition, R&B singer Chris Brown was seen sitting as Tank sang the anthem during the Power 106 celebrity basketball game in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Tank asked the crowd to sing along in honor of the people that died in the September 11 attacks as CB and others chose to remain seated.

Brown responded to news reports about not standing during the national anthem in an Instagram post that features a caption which simply reads, “Stay classy!”

Stay classy!

    While Brown makes himself an easy target to hate on at other times,I’m not mad at him doing his part in speaking to an issue that has been trivialized and dismissed for so long.

    All it took was one big name to stand up to corporate Amerikkka–now look at the aftereffect. Kaepernick is a made man now! Courage is inspirational. They can’t assassinate us all, and they’ll back down when we jeopardize their paper.


    We are getting MORE divided, not better #backfire
    we’re looking like WEAK COWARDS in the eyes of Russai, China & N.Korea ALL of whom could attack & annihilate a weak scattered country with ONE nuclear attack – then this silly anti-American move gonna look silly – #WipedOut
