Singer Chris Brown refused to stand while fellow singer Tanks sang the American National Anthem.
Now we are all for persons trying to exercise their rights when it comes on to a cause they believe in, but we honestly think that occasion was not the one for Brown to make a statement.
Tank could be heard saying he respected the right of those who wanted to protest but in respect of the 3000 who lost their lives during the September 11 tragedy he wanted them to stand.
The event – a charity basketball game was in their honor.
Brown, could be seen planted on the hardwood, was immovable. He laughed with friends as people around him stood.
