Since August 2016, some American athletes have protested against police brutality and racism by kneeling on one knee during the U.S. national anthem. Since 2017, many players also began protesting against President Donald Trump's criticisms of those involved in the protest, and some against Trump's policies since taking office. Some observers have described the protests as politically motivated or patriotic and have praised the players' social awareness, while others have criticized the attention given to social issues during sporting events, while others have called the protests unpatriotic or disrespectful. The act itself has become widely referred to as "taking a knee" or "taking the knee".

The act itself has become widely referred to as "taking a knee" or "taking the knee". The protests began in the National Football League (NFL) after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat and later knelt during the anthem, before his team's preseason games of 2016. Throughout the following seasons, members of various NFL and other sports teams have engaged in similar silent protests. On September 24, 2017, the NFL protests became more widespread when over 200 players sat or knelt in response to President Trump's calling for owners to "fire" the protesting players.
