Another National Anthem Singer Kneels While Singing, Goes on To Bash Police, And This Time The Singer Wore A Black Lives Matter Shirt

Miami, Florida – A woman who was singing the National Anthem at a 76ers and Heat game Friday night revealed a “Black Lives Matter” shirt an kneeled while performing.

In another disrespectful act by a music performer, a singer by the name of Denasia Lawrence opened up her blouse to reveal a “Black Lives Matter” shirt and kneeled while singing our National Anthem on Friday. This was done pregame before the Philadelphia 76ers and MiamiHeat played.

Earlier today Lawrence explained her reasoning behind disrespecting America:

“We’re being unjustly killed and overly criminalized, I took the opportunity to sing and kneel to show that we belong in this country and that we have the right to respectfully protest injustices against us.”

The problem is though, this isn’t anywhere near respectful.

Heat players stood side by side during the singing of the National Anthem with their arms linked. They later released a statement saying that they had no idea she was going to do this. Unlike the NFL, the NBA has a rule calling for all players to stand during the National Anthem.

Since San Francisco backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to kneel during the National Anthem, this has become a growing trend for sports teams all over the United States. Some grade school coaches are even pushing for their players to kneel during the National Anthem.

Lawrence also stated on Facebook

“I have sung the anthem before but this time taking a knee felt like the most patriotic thing I could do. I cannot idly stand by as black people are unlawfully profiled, harassed and killed by our law enforcement over and over and without a drop of accountability.”

  • Someone I used to Know

    This sort of thing is why I stopped watching football.

    Now this sort of thing is why I’m going to stop watching basketball.

    The best part is I have a lot more free time to pursue my hobbies.

    • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

      If the NBA does not get a handle on this type of disrespectful behavior before the regular season starts they can kiss my tail end just like the NFL.

      • Ambidextrous

        It will be interesting to see how that plays out. NBA stands for National Black Association right?

        • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

          National Basketball League the last I checked. I like watching the NBA, but I much prefer college hoops. They can protest all they want, I just will stop watching. Just like a stopped watching the NFL.

  • Kristen Loomis

    What ever happened to standing with your arms at your sides as a respectful way of disagreeing with the anthem or the pledge?

    • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

      Civil discourse is no longer acceptable for these disrespectful scumbags.

      • Kristen Loomis

        I chaperone a lot of high school football games because my daughter is a part of the color guard (marching band) and I won’t let any of the girls sit out of the anthem. I tell them they don’t have to put their hands on their hearts but they do need to stand. No one argues, they all stand, everyone wins. Why is this complicated?

        • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

          I really do not know the answer to that question. I wish I did. General civility and discourse in our culture is almost gone. You cannot even have a private conservation about anything without some progressive liberal clown interrupting and yell at you. It happens to me often here in Oregon when my wife and I our out to dinner or whatever. It is getting so bad that we fear that one on these clown’s will go further than just yelling obscenities at us.

          • doright

            General civility and discourse was almost gone. Get ready it coming back 5 X worse

    • doright

      This might make her somebody cause she is never gonna be a model. Maybe she works for a real American who will find some way to fire her from Hardees but chances are she is a welfare mom.

      • Kristen Loomis

        I really don’t agree with the assessment that she’s a welfare mom simply because she’s black. If it makes you happy to apply a stereotype, I guess you’re going to do what you’re going to do.

  • doright

    Like to know her phone # hopefully she will get some national displeasure sent her way . Somebody please hack her and redirect everything she tries to do on her pcu back to blue lives matter. L o L

    • Someone I used to Know

      Oh comeon. Doxxing is wrong even if you disagree with them.

  • Dala Kirkpatrick

    Another nobody wanting attention……she should have been yanked off the damned court as soon as she started to kneel!

  • jean

    I guess the NBA wants to follow in the same viewership as the NFL, they can knock themselves out.

    • Kristen Loomis

      I hope they do, the NFL can’t figure out why their ratings are dropping still.



    • Ranger

      When I see disrespectful idiots like this pile of garbage,it makes me wish this was North Korea so I could watch her be shot in public for disrespect of the nation!

  • Robert Travis

    She says black people are “unlwfully profiled, harrassed, and profiled, by our law enforcment without a drop of accountability” tht is a flat out lie! If there were no accountability, no scrutiny, no prosecution, how would thw average citizen ever hear of these incidents? Every time a black person is killed by a cop, especially a white cop, it is trumpeted from ever network in the nation and the cop is iimmediately raked over the coals. Evenfrom the POTUS and it is almost always without benefut of facts , truthm and evidence. She is a misguided disgrace!

    • Kristen Loomis

      We know accountability is happening because we aren’t sitting around with selective acceptance.

  • qthush

    First statistics don’t reflect that , you are ignorant of facts and therfore ignorant doing what you do.

  • William McBrayer

    She thinks police need accountability, but not the punk-ass thug criminals that infest our cities? Sure, that makes sense.

    • John Baker

      “Infest” is a very apt description.

    • Ranger

      Blacks NEVER accept responsibility.

  • Jim Beam

    I hope Adam Silver is listening to Roger Goddell and the NFL crying about their viewership drop and does the right thing in the way he handles these________________ (you fill in the blank) or the NBA will be going the way of the NFL.

  • John Siders

    I would love to drop her off in the predominately black portion of Chicago and see how long it takes her to yell for Police.

  • Georgann Casey

    Disrespectful to her would be saying ‘That’s right! On your knees where you belong, you [foolish girl]!’
    But I’d never say that.
    And I wouldn’t tell her how ‘her own people’ are the REAL killers of ‘her people’.
    But I’m not gonna say that either.
    And I won’t mention any of the other facts that might detract from her heartfelt enthusiasm at kneeling during our national anthem in protest about how blacks (and other minorities) such as Oprah, Barack, Langston Hugh’s, Michael Jordan, Benjamin Banneker, Phillis Wheatley, Sojourner Truth, Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, MLK, oh! My HEAD! The list of people is virtually ENDLESS! can’t get ahead like ALL the White people can.
    And for the record, The NCCP fact sheet shows that among America’s poor children, 4.2 million are white, 4 million are Latino, 3.6 million are African American, 400,000 are Asian, and 200,000 are American Indian.
    Just to show you NONE of us are exempt from starting out at the bottom & working our way to the top, IF WE CHOOSE!
    Now STFU!

    ALL Police need to stay out of the Black Area’s of Town. Let them burn and rob their neighborhoods.. When crime is so bad that they cant leave their homes then the Good Blacks will come forward and start to back the Police. Until then let them Burn the hoods down..

  • This happened right down the road from me and makes me sick. Stay home for your protest instead of agreeing to sing and make an asssss of yourself.

  • disqus_z400pR4acl

    Stuff that black bitch in the net and shave her empty head.

  • Tressa

    At least the NBA came out against that show of trash. Unlike the NFL.

  • Chloe Rowles

    STILL, they cannot back-up their claim! They are using cases of ‘thugs’ with long criminal records, or being armed and not following the police instructions to ‘drop the weapon’. If they can’t find a legitimate case of police bias and targeting Blacks,, then that alone says it is not as big a problem as they suggest!

  • Trumpster

    Don’t take the job then dumb bitch.

  • Bazinga

    I hope the networks know that the majority of the country back the police and the majority of the country will hopefully stop watch the NBA. Can you imagine the amount of revenue they will loss because people will now stop watching?

    • Ranger

      I have many black associates and friends who have made it clear that if there was a race war, they would not side with the criminal element blacks.

  • stop crying

    They should have known by looking at her. They all have that same look.

  • Jeremiah Pugwash

    Maybe if your out of control police force stopped shooting black people…….

    • Ranger

      Maybe if you blacks would stop killing, robbing, stealing, raping, and act like civilized humans, as opposed to wild jungle animals out committing crime, running from the police and shooting at them, they might not shoot back.

      What a typical ignorant black man!

      • Daja Parrish

        Ranger you just said something on my comment and now here you are spewing out your KLAN ways being racist again.

  • john

    why in the fuck is she singing then

  • Daja Parrish

    You go, girl. #BlackLivesMatter ✊✊✊✊

    • Ranger

      Really? Are you that uneducated? Black Lives Matter is a terrible violent group owned and operated by George Soros. If black lives matter, why do you kill each other in numbers that are larger than all other race killings combined? Guess if blacks kill blacks it’s alright with you? Ever looked in the mirror and taken responsibility for your actions, or do you blame everything on someone else?

      The girl you are supporting just disrespected the country you live in, not black or white problems!

      Stop being the typical problem black and try to be a better person. Respect and Responsibility go along way.

      But, with blacks it seems prison is a more suited destination. 16% of the population, 85% of the prison population.
      Nothing more need to said.

      • Daja Parrish

        Lies is all I read. Lies from a racist. You’re apart of the problem. #BlackLivesMatter

      • Daja Parrish

        Instead of calling us niggers you call us criminals. You aren’t anything but another Trump loving kkk white person that doesn’t see what happens in the world as a problem. BLM HAS NEVER ACTED VIOLENTLY MAYBE YOURE MISTAKING US WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS IN THE KLAN.

  • Rambone

    The music should’ve been cut and she should’ve been escorted out. Tip: She is wearing a BLM t-shirt.. The NFL missed their chance at nipping it.. the NBA better wake up!

  • Ranger

    As far as I see it, disrespecting the flag has nothing to do with free speech. It is a disrespect to the nation and the people. These people should be targeted for having their citizenship revoked and removed from the country.

    For those who think this is cute, you may wake a giant you can’t contain if you continue.

    I have completely stopped watching NFL and NBA! Fuck them all for allowing these scumbags to make their sport a political fiasco.
