Restaurant Refuses to Air NFL Game Due to Take the Knee Protests

A Louisiana restaurant is facing public backlash after management announced it would not be airing the Saints football game on Sunday. WOW Cafe & Wingery in St. Bernard Parish was taking a stand against several NFL players who had made the decision to sit out the national anthem, according to the New York Daily News. The so-called “take the knee protests” were a reaction to racial injustice and statements made earlier in the week by president Donald Trump.

In a statement on the restaurant’s social media pages on Sunday, restaurant owner Brook Songy Anastasiadis wrote that the players’ protests during the anthem “will not be supported or praised at WOW.”

The Louisiana Saints players were among many members of the NFL who chose to sit out, take a knee, or lock arms in solidarity with other players on September 24 during the anthem. Free agent and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick pioneered taking the knee last year as a protest of police brutality and racial injustice. However, the practice drew the ire of some sports fans and critics as disrespectful, with many calling for politics to stay outside of sports.

'It's like the end of the world' inside San Juan's steaming airport

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — There's a new front in this island's growing humanitarian crisis in the wake of Hurricane Maria: the airport.

Thousands of sweating, hopeful passengers have thronged inside Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, desperate to catch a flight off the storm-ravaged island.

Airlines, which have canceled dozens of flights over the past week, began commercial flights to the U.S. on Sunday. Passengers wait in long lines inside terminals running on backup generators with no air conditioning. Many have spent the night inside the steamy terminals, hoping for a chance to leave.

"It's like the end of the world," said Andrew Arteaga, who spent five nights at the airport with his wife, Marjet Mendez, and 8-month-old daughter, Ayla.
