Means was joined by Marcus Smith, Ron Brooks, and Malcolm Jenkins, who told ABC News that 'the protest "has nothing to do with this country or the flag or the anthem itself," adding that it is a meant to "push forward the conversation about social injustice."'

The raised fists are evocative of Tommie Smith and John Carlos atop the podium in the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.
