Michael Brown has not been forgotten.  It’s been almost a week since the grand jury’s decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of the unarmed teenager was announced.  Numerous athletes have taken to their social media accounts, namely Twitter and Instagram to address their feelings on the matter.  Many have expressed grief, disappointment and anger.  Today the St. Louis Rams took things a step further to show their solidarity by entering the field in the “hands up, don’t shoot” mantra that has been a main stay in the Ferguson protests.

Today the St. Louis Rams are playing the Oakland Raiders in a home game at the Edward Jones Dome.  As they came out of the tunnel Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey, Kenny Britt, Chris Givens, and Jared Cook did the “hands up, don’t shoot” pose showing solidarity and support for Michael Brown and the Ferguson protestors.

The Edward Jones Dome has been the site of protests both outside before and after games and inside during the game as well.  Since the announcement that Darren Wilson will be let go, the protests have continued nationwide as people are determined to make their voices heard and seek change.
