SIGN: Support for University of Nebraska football players taking a knee during the national anthem.

Petition Text

Sign in support of free speech and Black Lives Matter.

Why is this important?

Three Nebraska football players are under siege by state officials and some fans calling for their expulsion from the university (and worse) for backing Black Lives Matter. The governor and some university regents are adding to the turmoil against the student athletes. One person called for lynching the protesting student athletes.

How it will be delivered

The signatures will be emailed to the University of Nebraska President.

State of Nebraska, Kimball, NE, United States

Reasons for signing

  • I'd be in jail for what others can do and get away with. We march, they call it a riot and order national guard to disperse the march, We kneel and it's somehow against the law. We get killed and NO ONE NO ONE has ANYTHING to say! Whenever we fight for freedom and the rights of POC, there's always something to be said! When we get slaughtered everyone is speechless! They've dropped the ROPE and picked up GUNS! MODERN DAY LYNCHING HAS TO STOP! I stand (no pun intended) we ALL who kneel!!
  • As a former NE resident for many years, I am, sadly, not surprised at the many ignorant, bigoted and downright stupid reactions to the players' action. The hostility, especially the call for "lynching" the players, proves their point far better than anything I could say.
  • Attention must b brought to expose prejudice a injustice
