Washington protesters demand racial justice amid NFL protests

Washington protesters demand racial justice amid NFL protestsSeveral thousand demonstrators turned out Saturday in Washington to demand racial justice in the United States, days after NFL players across the country defied President Donald Trump by taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality. It comes as the country is experiencing a period of heightened racial tensions as white supremacist groups have come increasingly to the fore, culminating in the death of a liberal protester in August. An opinion poll published by CBS News Friday highlighted growing polarization: fifty-two percent of Americans disapprove of athletes staging protests during the national anthem — but they also do not like President Donald Trump’s handling of the issue.
