Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

St Louis Rams Show Support for #Ferguson by '#HandsUpDontShoot' Before Game evocative '68 Olympics Black Power salute

St. Louis Rams players put hands up during game in apparent nod to Ferguson

Rams tight end Jared Cook and receivers Kenny Britt, Stedman Bailey, Chris Givens and Tavon Austin entered the Edward Jones Dome arena Sunday afternoon with their hands raised. Protesters in Ferguson and cities across the United States frequently chant, "Hands up, don’t shoot" during demonstrations, which have been ongoing since last week when a Missouri grand jury did not indict former police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown in August.

The slogan references reports that Brown had been shot with his hands raised in the air.

The protests in nearby Ferguson, Mo., over the shooting death of black teen Michael Brown have made their way into St. Louis Rams games before. But before Sunday, never quite so conspicuously.

During the pregame introductions before the Rams' game against the Oakland Raiders, five members of the Rams receiving corps took the field amid flashing lights and fanfare – with their hands up.

The sign was a clear reference to the "hands up" gesture that has become synonymous with protests in support of Mr. Brown, who was shot by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Some eyewitnesses have said Brown was shot despite having his hands up, though much of the testimony heard by a grand jury was contradictory and confused.
