It Might Be Super Bowl Sunday, But Ava DuVernay Still Says #ImWithKap

The director posted on Twitter to remind us that there's still work to be done.

I's expected that when the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots line up for Super Bowl LII on Sunday none of them will kneel in protest. However, some people are still down for the cause and the Take A Knee protest that was started during the 2016 NFL season by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. And director Ava DuVernay made it known this weekend that she still stands with Kap no matter what.

It's the NFL's main event after what Huffington Post columnist Jamil Smith dubbed the "blackest year in NFL history," but it seems the protest that took the franchise by storm may be taking a backseat during the big game. After DuVernay's post, however, others made it known that they haven't forgotten about Kap either.

It may be the biggest game of the year and the players may have decided to have a game without political agitation, but we haven't forgotten. We're with Kap, because after the game the issues of racism, police brutality and injustice will still be waiting for us on Monday.
