US soccer star would take knee again ‘in a heartbeat’

(CNN)There was a time when Megan Rapinoe was booed by her own fans when representing the United States.

Those disgruntled supporters were voicing their disapproval at the American soccer star’s decision to kneel during the US national anthem in support of Colin Kaepernick’s silent protest against police brutality.
The Californian was the first white professional athlete to show solidarity with Kaepernick, the first to do so on an international stage, helping turn a ripple of discontent into a wave which swept across the country; from San Francisco to Seattle, from the NFL to the National Women’s Soccer League, from elite athletes to college kids.
