Several college athletes in Mississippi took a knee on Saturday as “The Star-Spangled Banner” played ahead of their basketball game.

The symbolic action by members of the men’s Ole Miss team came in response to a Confederacy rally unfolding near their arena, according to The Associated Press.

Not far away, a pair of pro-Confederate groups had staged a march in favor of a Confederate statue in the area, according to WLBT.

Various student groups held counterprotests on campus on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, one began on the city square and ended at the Confederate monument in the heart of the Ole Miss campus.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Let'em move to Africa where they would be surrounded by other blacks, and live in a hut made from mud and cow poop, instead of getting a free education at Ole, Miss because they happen to be 7' tall.
