The former bass player with Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, has issued an open letter to the band set to play The Super Bowl.
The letter states,
“My colleagues Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi are performing during the halftime show at the Super Bowl this coming Sunday. I call upon them to ‘take a knee’ onstage in full sight. I call upon them to do it in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, to do it for every child shot to death on these mean streets, to do it for every bereaved mother and father and brother and sister.”
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Waters then shared a video of him and his group going down on one knee onstage in a bid to make his point clear.
This act of solidarity by Waters happened at Harford, Conn back in September 2017, roughly one year after former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem. That was as a form of protest at racial injustice and police brutality directed at people of colour.
