Some UNC students protest national anthem at football game


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – A group of students demonstrated before the start of the Pittsburgh-UNC game and during the National Anthem in Chapel Hill on Saturday.

WTVD reported that the students, dressed primarily in black, chanted, “All lives matter. Black lives matter.”

During the National Anthem, they held a raised fist throughout the performance.

This protest comes days after a fatal officer-involved shooting of a man in Charlotte.

Last week, a smaller group sat during the anthem.
