A number of athletes followed in Kaepernick’s footsteps, and the tactic has become more popular in the wake of the ongoing protests against police brutality, systemic racism and social inequality. Every player on the Yankees and Nationals takes a knee prior to the National Anthem.

The land for Dodger Stadium had been seized from local owners and inhabitants in the early s by the city of Los Angeles, using eminent domain with funds from the federal Housing Act of The city had planned to develop the Elysian Park Heights public housing project, which included two dozen story buildings and more than two-story townhouses, in addition to newly rebuilt playgrounds and schools, and a college.
