CelebNSports247.om supports Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills who was kneeling as most others around him stood with their hands over their hearts just before the Texans took on the Saints at the Superdome.
Kenny Stills is an activist on issues of racial inequality.
He was traded to Houston last month from the Miami Dolphins. Stills began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 after Colin Kaepernick used the action as a way to protest police brutality.
Kenny has been very outspoken about kneeling especially since Jay Z partnering with the NFL. Last month he got into a music battle with the Dolphins coach Brian Flores who appluaded him after his jab at Still grew media legs.
These days, Stills is a Texans player, and head coach Bill O’Brien said he doesn’t want to wade into the issue, but said he is glad Stills is on the team.
O’Brien said after the Texans’ 28-30 loss to the Saints:
Kenny exercised his right, his prerogative. You know, I’ve talked with Kenny. Kenny’s a good guy, very smart guy, very articulate guy and he’s a really good football player. So glad to have him here.
I’ve talked to Kenny, Kenny’s a good guy, very smart guy, very articulate guy and he’s really good football player … so, glad to have him here.
Before he was traded to the Texans, Stills had been critical of Dolphins owner Stephen Ross over his relationship with President Donald Trump, according to USA Today.
Last week, Kenny had this to say after being traded to Houston:

It’s hard for me to put into words what the last four years have meant to me. Grateful is the first thing that comes to mind. Grateful for the memories and for the relationships. I love and appreciate all of my teammates, from the guys I spent a couple of days with to the guys I spent years with. [Stills] loves every staff member from the facility and the stadium I’ve crossed paths with. I love all of the people in the community who I had the privilege of working with. I’m at peace with the fact that I’m no longer playing in South Florida because I know it’s a part of the plan. And I’m looking forward to a new chapter in Houston. To everyone I met and forged relationships with in South Florida, we are family forever.
