10-Year-Old Boy Scout Takes a Knee During Pledge of Allegiance

No Comments


Holmes’ father expressed surprise and pride in an interview with the station, while Mayor Steve Schewel let the room know right away that the boy’s protest was welcomed at City Hall.

“To the scout that expressed his conscience by kneeling, we will say that we endorse and appreciate all expressions of conscience in the Durham City Council,” said Schewel.

On social media, others expressed their support for Holmes as well.
Some also gave credit to former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for first taking a knee during the national anthem at NFL games, starting in 2016. Some football players continued the protests in the most recent season, and athletes in other professional sports have joined as well.
