Adrian Peterson will ‘without a doubt’ take a knee during the national anthem

Following yet another disheartening and tragic death of Geroge Floyd, it has created a strong push for change in the United States. Much of which has centered on the unfair and unsettling treatment of the black community by law enforcement.

With many of the NFL players voicing their strong stances against social injustice, it has brought kneeling during the national anthem into question.

“Years ago, seeing Kaepernick taking a knee, now we’re all ready to take a knee together going into this season without a doubt,” Peterson said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Asked if he will take a knee, Peterson replied: “Without a doubt, without a doubt.”

It shouldn’t come as a surprise as many players have already voiced the need for change in the country. There is a stronger push in light of what continues to happen to minorities in the United States.

Unlike the previous time around with Colin Kaepernick, there should be more significant public support for kneeling during the national anthem. It’s an issue that has finally begun to strike a chord with many across the nation and several other countries.

There is a need for massive change to the justice system, and players across the professional sports leagues are showing their support for that effort. Peterson will be one of many players to head the route of kneeling in the 2020 season.
