Ever since the Black Lives Matter Movement started last year, Premier League and other sports has ever been taking a Knee in other to show support to the black.
Pro footballer, Wilfried Zaha is the first black premier league player not to take the knee the start of the game.
He made this known during an interview revealing how he felt that he gesture to promote anti-racism and anti-discrimination was degrading to him as a black man.
He then made a promise not to take part in the pre-match symbol which has started since the Black Lives Matter Protests since last year summer.
“I also fully respect my team–mates and players other clubs who continue to take the knee.
“As a society, I feel we should be encouraging better education in schools, and social media companies should be taking stronger action against people who abuses others online – not just footballers.”
“I now just want to focus on football and enjoy being back playing in the pitch, I’ll continue to stand tall.”
“The whole kneeling down – why must i kneel down for you to show that we matter?
“Why must I even wear Black Lives Matter on the back of my top to show you that we matter? This is all degrading stuff.”
