Kenny Stills has no plans to stop protesting during the national anthem.

Ever.

The Miami Dolphins wide receiver, who protested with teammate Albert Wilson before Sunday’s season opener against the Tennessee Titans, has knelt during the anthem since 2016. 

“We started the protest two years ago now—three years ago now—and we’re not going anywhere,” Stills told reporters. “It’s not going to change. Activism isn’t something you just kind of get involved in and then turn your back on it. Once your eyes are open to some of the things that are happening, you continue to work and try and grow and create change for the rest of your life, so this is something I’m committed to forever.

“It’s not about being the face or who gets the notoriety for it. It’s just what I care about outside of work and what I spend my time doing when I’m not here working for the Dolphins.”
