New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons show sign of unity after National Anthem

New, comments

Right after the National Anthem, the Saints and Falcons did something that will surely be talked about for some time.

A few days ago, running back Mark Ingram hinted at the possibility of the New Orleans Saints showing a sign of unity for racial inequality awareness. In tonight’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, the team did just that.

However, they weren’t alone.

Ingram told the media the other day, "We just need that equality amongst everybody. It hurts my heart to see stuff going on, people get murdered, difficulty happening; protests happening, violent protests, that’s not the way to do things. We all need to come together, and until we all realize that there is an issue, and acknowledge that there is an issue, nothing will be fixed."
