We have not seen much kneeling this past season in the NFL nor much at all since the NFL season ended. However, that doesn’t mean that social injustice and protests are going away anytime soon. On Saturday before the Ole Miss Rebels were playing the Georgia Bulldogs several Ole Missp layers were seen taking a knee before the National Anthem.

According to reports out of Mississippi there was a pro-Confederate rally being held in Oxford, MS on Saturday. And per local news in Mississippi the University asked all students to stay away from the rally entirely. Members of the basketball team however, decided to show their anger by protesting the rally before the SEC matchup.
