As NFL protests continueMarshawn Lynch made sure everyone knew where he stood before the Oakland Raiders’ game against the Denver Broncos Sunday night. The Raiders’ running back showed up to game day wearing an “Everybody vs. Trump” t-shirt, sparking outrage among many across social media. During the national anthem, Lynch was the only one to sit and was reportedly covered by Raiders staff. No photo opportunities were allowed.

Meanwhile, during a Carolina Panthers game, Cam Newton raised a Black power fist after a touchdown, CNN reported. Many San Francisco 49ers players also took a knee during the national anthem.

BIG FACTS

The Black man fatally shot by police on Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 80 in California was identified as 45-year-old Demilo Trayuon Hodge. Hodge, who was from San Leandro and owned a limousine service, was suspected in a 2015 Fairfield homicide, according to the East Bay Times. Police attempted to stop Hodge, who got out of his car and reportedly refused to surrender and began shooting at police. Hodge was killed shortly after police responded with fire.

“We’re doing really well on Puerto Rico. Tremendous progress being made. We’re getting the roads open, we’re getting a lot of things done — really at a record clip,” Trump later told reporters.
