FRISCO, TX - AUGUST 12: FC Dallas Team get to their knees during the national anthem prior the game game between FC Dallas and Nashville SC as part of the Major League Soccer 2020 at Toyota Stadium on August 12, 2020 in Frisco, Texas.

FC Dallas & Nashville SC MLS Players Booed For Kneeling During Anthem In Texas

During Wednesday’s game between FC Dallas and Nashville SC in Frisco, Texas, players were booed by fans in attendance when they kneeled during the national anthem. This comes during a push across all professional sports to raise awareness of social injustice, racial inequality and police brutality towards African Americans.

NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace was booed recently by fans after a member of Wallace’s crew found a noose in the Wallace’s garage and mistook it as a race-based threat.

Dallas defender Reggie Cannon expressed outrage toward the fans. “You can’t even have support from your own fans in your own stadium. It’s baffling to me,” Cannon said. “As a team, we try to give the best possible product on the field and these last six months have been absolute hell for us. Absolute hell. We had someone chanting U.S.A., but they don’t understand what kneeling means. They don’t understand why we’re kneeling. They can’t see the reason. They think we’re the ignorant ones. It’s incredibly frustrating. I’m sorry to have this tone, but you have to call it for what it is.”
