Jordin Sparks became the latest figure to draw attention during the National Anthem on Monday night (Sept. 25) while singing prior to the Arizona Cardinals hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

Rather than kneel or lock arms like players around the NFL chose to do over the weekend as a silent protest for racial injustice, Sparks displayed “Prov 31:8-9” on her left hand — the Bible verse, Proverbs 31:8-9, which reads: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
