In 2016, Colin Kaepernick became famous for kneeling in the United States national anthem, protesting against police violence and racial injustice against black Americans. This gesture, innocuous in France, created a strong controversy in the US and was followed by other players. The protest was very popular among black Americans, with 74% of favorable opinions in 2016, and very unpopular among whites, with 62% of negative opinions.

This opposition eventually emerged on all black football players. Every year, a Q Scores study evaluates the popularity of NFL stars, the Washington Post recalls, via a representative panel of the American population. Q Scores asks respondents whether they know any particular player, and whether their opinion about the latter is "mediocre", "passable", "good", "very good" or "one of your favorites". Forty-three NFL players have been included in the 2015 and 2018 polls. Of these, twenty-one are black. Nine have protested at least once during the 2016 or 2017 seasons. On the side of the white players, none has done so.
