In the lower part of the tattoo on the outside of his right thigh, protesters hold other signs saying “Stop killing us” and “Say their name”.

Sandwiched between these modern protesters, civil rights protesters are holding up signs saying “We protest school segregation” and “We demand equal rights now!”


The tattoo was added to the same leg where Stills already had a tattoo of civil rights hero John Lewis and a tattoo of a famous 1968 photo of a Memphis protester holding a sign that says “I am a man” .



Texans acquired Stills in a trade with the Miami Dolphins last year, weeks after receiver criticized Dolphins team owner Stephen Ross for organizing a re-election fundraiser of President Donald Trump.

Stills is known for his activism in the community, including participating in walks with police.

Stills is an ally of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He protested racial injustice and economic inequality by kneeling for the national anthem for the past four years, including last season with the Texans.


Stills, 28, was a star in Oklahoma before being drafted by the Saints in 2013. He played 13 games with the Texans last season, scoring 40 passes for 561 yards and four touchdowns.
