Justine Skye Kneels After Singing National Anthem – Credits Black Lives Matter
Singer Justine Skye has become the latest virtue-signaler to temporarily grab the media spotlight by kneeling during the National Anthem. She waited until the end of the anthem and knelt down in front of the crowd attending opening night for the Brooklyn Nets. Her act was met by a mixture of cheers and boos from the crowd. After the game, sent out a tweet with the hashtag #blacklivesmatter.
Justine Skye is a singer signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. She has had a few singles that reached the R&B charts, but hasn’t enjoyed a breakout hit. None of her albums have enjoyed significant commercial success.
Justine Skye Kneels After Singing National Anthem, is a headline that should surprise nobody. It only makes sense that she would join the social justice circus. Jay-Z, the co-owner of Roc Nation dedicated a song at a recent performance to Colin Kaepernick. Skye is working on another album, and she surely didn’t miss Eminem using his Donald Trump freestyle to hype up attention for his new release. Her career needed a shot in the arm, and like Eminem, Skye used virtue-signalling to shine the spotlight of the mainstream media on to her.
Black Lives Matter, White NBA Fan’s Don’t
Like Kijuana Nije, Justine Skye found an expedient way to draw attention to herself. While it is highly unlikely that the NBA or the Brooklyn Nets saw this coming, incidents like this present a particular challenge to NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver. Experiences like this will sour the image of the league for at least half of their fanbase. He was quick to remind the players that he expected them to stand for the national anthem. The last thing Silver wants is a mass exodus of millions of fans, like the droves that left the NFL since they decided to unleash a disastrous social justice experiment on their fanbase. With star players like LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony suiting up for the social justice circus, the NBA needs to eliminate the perception that White fans don’t matter, before they bail en masse. Justine Skye kneeling after the National Anthem only reinforced that impression.
