jt brown protest anthem

Tampa Bay Lightning forward J.T. Brown becomes the first NHL player to protest during the national anthem. Brown raised his right fist during his team's first road game of the season.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the anthem to make a statement about social inequality and police treatment of blacks in the United States. The protests have spread from the NFL to other sports.

Brown remained standing throughout the anthem Saturday night, and raised his fist to protest. Brown is the son of former NFL running back Ted Brown, who played eight seasons for the Minnesota Vikings.
