The wave of taking-a-knee made me emotional, hopeful. These mighty athletes—purveyors of masculinity and brotherhood—pushed too far, took a stand. And took the knee. As I lay in bed last night, I scoured Instagram. It wasn’t simply those of us who have marched in protest these last almost-ten months; it was the ones who have stood by in silence all along. And these athletes? They’ve been rather quiet. That is, until they were used as pawns. And so, my feminist response? Ride this. Ride this. Ride this.
