LINCOLN, Neb. — A Nebraska football player who along with two teammates kneeled during the national anthem before the game at Northwestern on Saturday night said he and his family have received racially charged blowback for his protest.

Senior linebacker Michael Rose-Ivey says the response reinforces his point that racial injustice is a major problem in the country.

Rose-Ivey read an impassioned statement about the anthem protest during the Cornhuskers’ weekly media availability on Monday.

Rose-Ivey, redshirt freshman Mohamed Barry and freshman DaiShon Neal took a knee during the anthem.

Rose-Ivey said they were joining in solidarity with San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other professional and amateur athletes who are kneeling or otherwise protesting racial injustice and police brutality.
