Colin Kaepernick’s protests have succeeding in raising awareness and provoking action in others. His moves have spread throughout the NFL since he began kneeling during the National Anthem.

The NBA has been proactive about the situation with their teams, reaching out to teams to find a way to support players and their beliefs without alienating fans who don’t think athletes should been allowed to have opinions. Many NBA players have spoken on the issue, and now the Raptors have become the first to make a statement during a game.

This seems to be exactly the kind of statement the league is looking for. The players are making a clear gesture of unity, but aren’t doing anything that people could perceive as disrespectful or offensive.
