Singer Stevie Wonder is the latest oppressed multi-millionaire to take a knee – only he took 2 for drama

Stevie Wonder became the latest “oppressed” multi-millionaire coddled elitist to take a knee to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and athletes who kneel for the National Anthem.

“Tonight, I’m taking a knee for America; but not just one knee, I’m taking both knees,” he said before he performed at the 2017 Global Citizen Festival in New York City on Saturday.

“Both knees in prayer for our planet, our future, our leaders of the world and our globe. Amen,” he said.

He kneeled, along with his son, Kwame Morris and said he “wanted to say that prayer before I serve you my musical meal,” to rousing applause.

Wonder asked the crowd to “stand down bigotry” and “condemn sexism.”

“Our global brothers and sisters, I didn’t come here to preach, but I’m telling you, our spirit must be in the right place. All the time — not just now, but tomorrow and whenever you, whenever you, whenever you need to interrupt hate, stand down bigotry, condemn sexism and find love for all of our global brothers and sisters every day,” he said.

His comments come after his performance at a telethon for hurricane victims where he said anyone who doesn’t believe in global warming is either “blind or unintelligent.”

It has been an eventful weekend of celebrities and athletes taking aim at President Donald Trump for saying players who kneel for the anthem ought to be fired.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell called the president’s remarks divisive, LeBron James called him a “bum” and Stephen Curry found himself dis-invited from the White House.

It will be interesting to see how athletes respond on Sunday.

Particularly after President Trump continued his attacks with tweets before Sunday’s NFL games begin.
