Hertha Berlin, a German soccer club, kneeled before their match Saturday in a show of solidary with National Football League players.

Hertha Berlin's starting lineup linked arms then took a knee before their Bundesliga match at home against Schalke 04.

The ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback, now a free agent, chose to sit out said anthem in a personal form of protest, citing racism as his main reason for his actions.

President Donald Trump has also become involved in the situation. Whether people take a knee before, during or after the national anthem, people have been trying to peacefully make a statement on the inequality some face despite many believing that it's some sort of protest against the troops or the American flag.

On Twitter, the Bundesliga club says, "Hertha BSC stands for tolerance and responsibility! For a tolerant Berlin and open-minded world, now and forevermore!"

Schalke won the tie 2-0.

Kaepernick started his protest past year when he sat down as the American national anthem was played during a pre-season American football game in 2016.

And in the days since he has continued to call for protesting players to lose their jobs and backed a boycott of the NFL.
