German Soccer Team Protests Trump By Kneeling For An ‘Open-Minded World’

Donald Trump’s attack on the NFL has been seen as unjust all over the world and on Saturday the German soccer club Hertha Berlin decided to take a knee in solidarity with NFL players protesting police brutality and racial inequality in the United States.

The team said in a statement via Twitter:

“Hertha BSC stands for tolerance and responsibility! For a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore!”

The team’s Twitter account also posted another picture of the team’s bench kneeling as well using the hashtag “#TakeAKnee,” which has been used by many in support of NFL players such as Colin Kaepernick

“Berlin is colorful,” the Hertha stadium announcer said over the loudspeaker, according to ESPNFC. “Hertha BSC stands for diversity and against violence.”

“For this reason, we are joining forces with the protest of our fellow American athletes to take a stand against discrimination,” the message continued.

“For a tolerant Berlin, both now and forevermore.”
