Steelers Make Social Justice Statement Before Monday Night Opener



The Steelers made a significant social justice statement before their season opener against the New York Giants on Monday night.

During the signing of the national anthem, the Steelers stood in a row on their sideline, with the players near the 50-yard line holding a banner that read “Steelers Against Racism.”

In addition, tight end Eric Ebron and rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool held their right fists in the air during the anthem.

Beforehand, the Steelers wore black shirts during warmups with slogans such as “End Racism” and “Black Lives Matter.”

Though the Steelers did not have a member of their team kneel during the anthem, several members of the New York Giants did.
